Cars, Cards, Creating...
Two years ago this same month of January Mr. C and I drove to Barrett Jackson Auto Auctions in Scottsdale Arizona. It is considered to be the mecca of auto auctions and Mr. C had it on his bucket list. I sort of wish we were there this week as the auctions are running again. Red is not my color but I just had to try on this little Smart Car.
Once again red is not my color but this sweet '67 Nova is my heartthrob. One of my favorite first cars was a '66 Nova in baby blue and I would love to have it back. Now they are way too pricey for my budget.
Here you can get a sense of the thousands of people who attend the mecca of Barrett Jackson Scottsdale.
I joined Jillayne of A Fine Seam and her offer to make a few Christmas cards and in return she will make little books for them and share with the participants. Who could resist anything that Jillayne puts her hands to. So here is a peek of my cardstock I selected. Actually a peek is all we get because I forgot to get a photo of the finished cards.
Knowing Jillayne likes gray I sewed a little bag out of some snowflake design fabric to insert the cards for shipping. Then she can use the little bag for anything she likes.
Here is the little bag complete with cards wrapped in coordinating tissue paper for mailing. Every detail matters. They have arrived safely and I can now breathe a sigh of relief.
Remember my little fussy cut Valentine? Here I am working on toning down the colors because after all the theme is White Valentine. I usually don't do messy but this time I really got into it and enjoyed the multi layers of blanding. Do you begin a project with a complete idea or do you have an idea and let the creativity flow as you go?
Our weather continues to be unseasonably cold. We do have Sunshine which helps but the temps are not matching the warmth of the sun one would expect.
May you enjoy each day to the fullest and realize your creative bliss. Creative Hearts are Happy Hearts...
