It's that time of year again... where routine reigns and schedule is supreme. I'm not a fan. I prefer summer. Trading school for swimming. Turkey sandwiches for ice cream sandwiches. I miss it already and it's not really even gone! We did start school today, though, so life has changed even if the weather hasn't. And so, my new mantra... This is one of my favorite quickies as of late. I borrowed some of Mom's Copics and was literally on my way out the door to return them when I thought to make a 10 minute card. No real blending, nothing fancy. Just a few swipes with each color to make some graduated stripes down the side. Love it. I'm not a fancy Copic-er, but I could see myself becoming a simple Copic-er. For stripes, if nothing else. I decided to give my much loved, much used TT sets a much deserved break and picked up some friends to live in the stamp drawer with them. Only their new friends don't visit the drawer too often yet since I'm using them on nearly everything lately. I *love* this sentiment. Because not every card giving occassion is all about gumdrops and smiley faces, right? And speaking of card giving occassions... I confessed on the Paper Crafts Facebook page last week that I am a card mailing slacker of the highest degree. So this card is headed out to the mailbox on the way to a friend who lives close enough to hand it off to, but who needs something unexpected in the mailbox for a little pick me up. Look at me... all productive and everything. Maybe it's the season, right? Care to join me in committing to actually MAIL something this week?
