Today’s gratitude: PBS and no commercials. We watched another network for one show and the advertisements were obnoxious. And they made the little man that way too. He wanted everything that flashed on the screen. So today, I am thankful for quality television shows that don’t have toy advertisements.
On a side note, we did start Christmas shopping for the little man and I am thankful for my creative hubby who cleverly hid our covert shopping purchases. :) It was fun! Up until now, the little man hasn’t really paid attention, or noticed. But this year he is getting wise to the games. Isn’t this what parenting is all about?!?! :)
I started this card by stamping the damask image in black ink onto wood paper. Love the contrast of the rustic wood and elegant damask. Then I sprayed over the entire piece with Glimmer Mist. It made the ink bleed a bit. But, I thought it looked like old fabric, soft and worn. The wood grain also still stands out.
The card has been sitting and waiting and waiting to be finished. I just couldn’t cover up the unique background with ribbon or lace, or another shape. Then I saw this rub on in my stash. Perfect. And finished just in time for the deadline. :) Be sure and check out all the fun and trendy challenges, including eye candy at Moxie Fab World.
What are you thankful for today? And where is your best toy-hiding location? thanks for stopping by!
