TCP Tuesday 172--Felty Feelings
Well, we just got the girls all off to their first day of school. Audrie started second and Lindsie started fifth grade, which for her means an entire new school with more kids in the mix from other elementaries (for 5th and 6th, they go to an intermediate school here). Neither one of them were the bit nervous or scared, in fact, they were ready to go at the crack of dawn! Not me, I had a little trouble with that early hour. Not even a shower and Starbuck's helped me remember to take a "first day of school" picture, or even bring my camera to the school for one with their teachers. I can see I'm going to have big problems being the "Yearbook Manager" for Audrie's elementary school. I'm still wondering why on earth I ever signed up for that.
Anyway, since it's back to school time, I FELT like this sentiment was appropriate for my card I made for TCP Tuesday from The Cat's Pajamas. It's time to get ourselves back in gear with schedules (thank goodness) and things to get done--Put Your Pedal to the Metal is from the newer set, Wheel Love. Julie, the technique guru charged us with using FELT in our projects for TCPTUES172 (last Tuesday). I didn't do anything too out of the box, just mixed a bit of it in for my flowers for some added texture. I drew a little inspiration from last Friday's Viva la Verve sketch, changing it up just a bit, as I FELT it would look cute to have all the flowers from the Flower Buttons CutUps dies across the top of the main image panel.
Ok, well I think I'll go revel in the quietness and maybe if I FEEL like it, I'll do a little stamping this afternoon. Have you FELT that way before? Teehee. Check out Alma's blog HERE for more inspiration and if you FEEL like using FELT, she's got all the details on how to play along.
SUSIE Q-TIP: When cutting a rectangle from your smaller scraps of paper, go ahead and cut each side completely off to the size rectangle you're looking for. Otherwise, you'll end up with an "L" shaped piece of cardstock that will be hard to store (will get caught on all the other scraps when you want to pull it out to use) and plus, how often do you need cardstock "L's"?
