So I have good news!!!! I was able to get exempt from the jury duty! Thank god because there are 2 coming up... and from what the judge mentioned they will last around 1 to 1 1/2 years! That's 5 days a week...for a year 1/2. Plus obviously at the end it will take the jury some time to review the evidence. That would not have been good... So I used the fact that I have 4 kids! The judge exempted me. For once having those kids paid up lol. Seriously it would not have been a good thing family wise. Being out of work for so long...
I was totally exhausted after this. What a rollercoaster of emotions. I would make one lousy criminal because I was a nervous basket case to talk to the judge and the lawyers to tell them that I was not a good choice.
To relax tonight I made 2 cards. I'm going to show you the 1st one.
I used Retro TV from Birdie Brown as well as the sentiment Staytuned. I used my copics to color it up and a CM silver pen for the nobs, then I used glaze all over the front to give it the glossy look like a real tube tv. I used Rocket age 8x8 from October afternoon paper. I thought it was the perfect retro feel for this. I had some left over from my card from little summer boy so used the same star paper and used the ms border punch to make the stars. I used Robin's Nest dew drops in silver in the corner.
Here's a closer look of the card:
You can see that I pop up the tv and the sentiment.
I was soooo happy with my creation... then I put it in the plastic cover bag... and the glaze was not as dried as I thought it was. So had to scrap the tv and the sign... you will see the background again in some other card :( Like my daughter said, "at least mom you had taken the pictures"... she's right but it really still sucks.
I followed this sketch:
I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
So that's this creation. I will be back with the next one ;) Don't forget to leave a comment, I love to read it.
