Tuesday , Tuesday....

I'm busy getting ready for my trip to Palm Springs, yay!
I have loads of swaps to finish, loads of laundry to finish, and
loads of fires to put out. If you are a mom, you KNOW what
I mean. All I can say is....I'm going to really be ready for the
spa by the time I get there!
Here are a couple more clipboards I made last week. I did notmention the size in my previous post. They are small. Only about 6 x 4 inches. The photo spot is about 2-1/2 inches. I know that is small, but you could easily do the same idea with a bigger clip board. They are SO fun to make! For this one I used a piece of celery cardstock with some designer sky blue over top of it. It is very lightly striped...hard to see here. The flowers are Prima and the pearl middles are from my SU Pretties kit. I stamped the "love" with basic black ink. The stamp is a Heidi Swap (wish I had her handwriting). I added the "true" with my rough edges SU stamps. The photo corners are Pioneer and the ribbons are a combo of SU and Walmart.
This next one is for a new baby. My customer called me at the last minute and told me she had the spelling wrong so in the final project, there are two D's in Maddison. I was able to peel off the letters and space them apart to fix it. Thank goodness! The papers here are from an old SU catalog...slumber party I think. I stamped Madison with basic black onto whisper white cardstock and cut out each letter free hand. I sponged the edges of each letter block with pretty in pink ink. I used a flower from my pretties kit that I lightly rubbed with the pretty in pink ink (isn't that fun to read?) and stuck it and a button on with mini glue dots. I wasn't able to actually peel the glue dots off when I modified it, but I was able to sliiiide it over enough to still be over the I somewhat. The good news is my client was happy with them and paid me more than I asked for them. (that is always nice!)
I've got election training today and swaps to finish so I better get crackin!
Have a great day!!
