You know, I think I'm starting to appreciate January. Freezing, short days with nothing to look forward to REALLY means the ability to cozy up, and spend time crafting! Today I want to share a card I made for my brother's birthday:
Paper Smooches Cuteasaurus and sentiment from Birthday Sampler. They were inked with Memento Tuxedo Black, and colored with Copics. The speech bubble was hand drawn and outlined with a Zig Writer marker in black. The images on the front were popped up with foam adhesive.
I have a few blogging goals this year:
1) Figure out how to put a watermark on my photos
2) Become a more consistent blogger while balancing time wisely
3) Meet and share with more people in this great community
Here's a funny story:
My brother likes to compete in Iron Man competitions, so a couple of years ago for his birthday I made him this card:
here. Anyway, my brother was reading an Iron Man Facebook group thing (okay, now I'm showing you now how little I understand Facebook) and saw his card used as a guy's profile picture. So cool how images get around! So I Googled the image and found it didn't link back to my blog, but to a bakery blog with their watermark on the photo. How interesting! He thought I would be offended, but I'm actually just honored by it, I'm sure their watermark just appears on all of their pictures. It did boost me to create this year's goal to learn how to put a watermark on my photos. "Easy," you say, but the whole technical process is slow for me. What I'd really love to do is sit down with someone face to face and ask them all my "how do you" questions. How about you? What are your blogging goals this year? I'd love to hear what you're wanting to do.
I'm joining the fun today over at the following challenge blogs:
