Nope, unfortunately not going anywhere. I just went to get my first shingles vaccine, finally, and went to Michael's for some adhesive and other supplies. I haven't been out of the house since Monday.
This card is for Wednesday's sketch and today's WT-monochromatic, which I always enjoy. I also include this for ABC14 challenge-m is for masculine. More on that later.
I don't have a single edge die to cut down the middle so I opted for the square die like Dina used. I'll have to look at the directions again because I did something wrong with the die. What else is new??? Anywho, I fixed it.
I chose three blue/green colors for my palette, sponging them on the white cs and the lightweight paper for the inside. Then I stenciled with the storm sky. Used a travel set from IO for the sentiment, some postage wood mount stamps, and added a stamp from France and some Nuvo Dream Drops.
About the M is for masculine....what is masculine and what is feminine? I've often had comments on cards, saying 'what a good masculine card'. I've never had a comment 'what a lovely feminine card'. I rarely choose to make a card for either gender and of course now there are many genders. I intentionally put on a postage stamp with a woman's face and the Nuvo drops, just to show that my cards are for humans, first and foremost. We all have both genders inside of us. Is pink only for women? I wore my Green Bay Packer pink cap today, have had it since Deanna Favre had breast cancer. But men get breast cancer too; I have a friend who died from it. I truly wish we could stop dividing things into masculine and feminine, especially in this day and age. Thanks for listening. Instead of M for masculine, this is M for mammal, because that's what we all are.

Ok then, M for mammal, but I still like to think that we are either male or female. I do like your blue/green colors and the sponging done on your stencil looks so soft. Great card for any mammal, Jean~

Love the blues and greens with the stencil you chose for your pretty card, Jean! Wonderful job combining all of these challenges. I have often commented about a card being either masculine or feminine. As for the whole gender issue, I’ll stand firmly on the Biblical account...it’s been around a whole lot longer. Culture changes...the word of God is a sure foundation. God places value on each and every individual, male or female. Any way, I’m glad you were able to get out and about and are feeling better.

I love the colors and the patterns of this! Glad you didn't have a die to cut in half because I didn't get to watch the video and now I know how to do it another way! Which is really cool, btw. The postage stamp and travel stamps are great!
