It's been a long time since I posted. Lots going on around here, but nothing of monumental importance...or even blog-worthy. So, I'll just get straight to the card.
This card combines two challenges:
I used the Fall Favorites stamp set, edge distressor, paper piercing tool, and ribbons from CTMH. I also used Copic markers, though they did not blend as well as usual because I didn't use great paper. I really love this scarecrow, and have had lots of fun coloring him.
Now...for something completely different.
My friend, Terri Haynes wrote a book called Love Simplified. She self-published it and, I'll be honest, that made me nervous. But Terri sent me a copy of the manuscript and I finally got a chance to read it today. Yep, I read it in one sitting. She totally sucked me into her story from the first page. Her heroine, Tempest Day, is a relationship expert who has helped many people find love but has never fallen in love herself. When she exposed on national television as a fraud, she agrees to become the star of her own reality show to prove her seven-point compatibility system really works.
Not being a reality show person, that part made me nervous, too. (Reviewing the work of someone you call friend is not an easy thing sometimes.) But Terri handled the show part with more class than pretty much every reality show I've ever stumbled across while channel surfing. The background insight made wonder how much she knows about TV production first hand. I felt like I was behind the scenes.
So, if you are looking for a great story and want to support an author directly, go to Amazon or Terri's blog and purchase a copy of her debut novel.
Until next time,
