Today was a lazy day at the Guild Hall. All was quiet in the realm, and there were no quests pending. As such, I took this time to retreat to the crafting chambers and create a card for one of the mechanics at the Wagon & Carriage Repair Stall, whose nameday I had somehow missed.
This card I started by creating the background using some white paper from my scrap bin and green and blue Dylusions spray inks in conjunction with a stencil. I set that aside to dry while I stamped The Greeting Farm’s “Sunday” and coloured him with Prismacolors. I used a scrap of paper I had left from when I made these recipe books as an accent. The sentiment I stamped using the Dylusions “Say What You Mean” set. After distressing the edges of the paper, I added some thread and “screw” brads to finish off the front.
On the inside I used another little scrap of that patterned paper, earning me +593 waste-not-want-not exp points. The sentiment was stamped using the My Pink Stamper “Birthday Crazy” set.
I stamped the envelope using the Jenni Bowlin “Harlequin” stamp to make it match the pattern on the card.
This checkered card will be entered into the following challenges:
I enjoy lazy days, however it always seems that with one lazy day you must pay for it with a hectic day following. I’m already tallying the chores and tasks that must be completed tomorrow and am dreading it....so much for my relaxing Sunday.
