Good morning. Yikes! I slept in with pretty bizarre dreams so I'm still a bit groggy. My dear friend, and co-team leader Carole, chose the boots from Nate's ABC'S for our BBTB2 challenge this week. Yea for that! I have no idea how long I've owned this cartridge, but the sticker on the cart told me it had never been used. Instead of the regular rain boot cut, I chose the phrase and welded it to a pond from Create a Critter and part of a paisley shape from Old West for my huge splash drops. The water was cut in light blue mirror card stock and the patterned DP is from the DCWV Linen Closet stack except for the inside mat which is BoBunny.
It is a shaped front card, welded in DS to a rounded rectangle from George. I compressed the phrase somewhat so the card wouldn't be as long which required a bit of adjustment to the boot accent layers as well. "Make a" was cut with my Cuttlebug from the Birthday Card Making Combo. the cool mirror and clear sparkle drops were from Recollections at M's.
I usually prefer to do my shaped cards with cuts that have a shadow, but this turned out alright. I had to do a bit of trimming to the phrase in order to have an additional popped layer of the second boot, and again for "Splash" to be separate. There is tons of inspiration from my DT sisters as usual this week, so please go have a look at BBTB2. Of course, we look forward to your participation and you may use boots from any cartridge. New work only please, Mentiion BBTB2 with a link back to the challenge, and link it (the post, not the whole blog) to MR. Linky. But before you do...
PLEASE DON'T SKIP THIS LAST PARAGRAPH. I've never liked word verification, especially because it is totally unnecessary with Google's Spam filter. In the 3 1/2 half years I've been blogging, I can count the number of inappropriate comments I've gotten, and ya know what? I deleted them. BIG DEAL! As a member of several DT's I'm expected to comment on challenge entries which I thoroughly enjoy doing, but you can imagine how much time and effort that takes, especially with WV. Now Blogger has added that RIDICULOUS two word garbage, in which one of them is generally illegible. I sit there and try to decipher th screwy one after writing a decent comment and invariably mess up and have to try AGAIN with something equally unreadable. I'm sorry, I'm getting old and my eyesight isn't so great, I guess. There are not enough hours in the day for this, so from now on, I cannot guarantee a comment from me if you have word verification. I will try ONCE, and ONCE ONLY to unscramble that mess and if I fail, well, too bad. If you're that worried about your comments or some mythical robots, please enable comment moderation but Please, please, PLEASE be a friend and turn that crap OFF! (Obviously someone has gotten up on the wrong side of the bed, but even when I'm in a GOOD mood I swear under my breath when I have to type a word in) We all LOVE comments and I LOVE telling you how much I appreciate and admire your work. Don't force me to stop.
To turn off WV go to the Settings tab at the top and click on it. There is a bar underneath that starts with Basic, Publishing, etc. then Comments. Click on that and scroll down almost to the end and click NO under "Show word verification for comments". Above that is Comment moderation, if you find that necessary, click Always (or whatever) and THAT'S IT! Thanks so much!
