@pollyprissypants

Did you try sanding your cards before painting them? I haven't tried that technique yet myself but I saw a youtube video with it.

And if you don't have sand paper near by, sometimes you can use a brand new scrubby sponge - the scrubby side can usually sand glossy paper well enough to paint over.

@Smmart

Oh that's a good tip! I wish I had known that a few days ago lol. I went out and bought some sandpaper, but I already had a scrubbie. Darn it, lol, I guess next time.

I had a hard time falling asleep last night because I came up with this great idea for one of the cards. I have errands to run this afternoon and then I'm going to make them up. I hope they turn out the way it looked in my head lol.

I sent two of four sets out today so I will put up the gallery later this afternoon.
Hope you are all doing well and crafting away.

I finished the second set today, so I still have one more to do. I'll send all three sets the same day to save a trip to the post office Grin but I think next week I'll have everything done.

So, to correct an above statement - I did send out two sets last week, but one of them was to Flip-floP - who isn't one of my partners. I accidentally included FF's info in both emails. So she is the lucky winner of an extra set from me.

Hope everyone is inspired and crafting away! Have fun.

Epic craft wins out the wazoo today! I got both cards for each partner about halfway done. Now I'm waiting for drying. The waiting game sucks!

It has been the busiest couple of weeks EVER here.  I have my supplies and am ready to start crafting . . . now to find a free moment!  (No worries, I have a weekend to myself coming up)
