Happy end of the work week for those who work only four days a week. Yes, there are some who have a three day long weekend. While you may go to work and do your "eight" hours, there are some who go to work and put in "ten- twelve" hours so that Thursday will be like your Friday. I know you have thought why I always give congrats to these people on a Thursday and that is the reason behind it. I know quite a lot of people around in my area that work just four days a week.
You see, I've always wanted to work from home and go into the office on days that I felt like having some communication and "up close and personal time" with other people....unfortunately, I couldn't do that by being a teacher...I had to go in to see those smiling faces in that lovely place every day.
In every situation there is always a "negative" side and a "positive" side. Even if you work four days a week some look at the number of hours you have to put in each day as a "negative" while you are looking at it as a "positive". You are at work so why not stay two or more hours longer so that your weekend can be longer.
Let's look at my cards for today. I have made two cards. One card has the die cut on it in the "positive" way, while the other one is simply made from the "negative" cut of the die:
The die in question is Spellbinders ferns.
You have seen this in probably the last couple of cards I have made. Each time I cut out the ferns from cardstock, I noticed the intricate pattern it was leaving behind. I decided to use a sheet of Ranger watercolor paper that I had previously colored with watercolor inks to cut ferns from it. I didn't use any particular pattern while cutting. I was more focused on the ferns for the card I was making. However, after cutting out the ferns, the details left behind sparked the making of another card.
I like the idea of getting two cards from the use of one die.
When I decide to do this again with this same die, I will focus more on the placement of the die to get a cohesive pattern. I didn't want to throw the paper away, so, I made this second card.
Thanks for visiting and you are always welcome to come again.
Sending you a hug and LOVE,
