Yes, my life is in transition. I am now getting used to life as a widow. What will this bring? Time will tell.

The Sad Story of the Mummy Card

My post for my Sunday Papers with Jeanette at Crafting With OWSE.

I hope you pop on over to Crafting With Owse and become a
follower.    Judy posts Technique Tuesdays on Tuesdays.  This week she has
shown us the Shaving Cream Technique.  
Friday is Felonious Friday with Outlaw Woman and Robyn.  This 
week she shows us a beautiful piece painted with Distress Inks. 
 Wednesday is Wednesday's Women
with a Special Guest Artist and the Sunday Papers with me.

Designed by:  Jamie Hurley

I saw Jamie's card in the current issue of Paper Crafts Magazine.   
This is my kind of cute and I wanted to make one.

I gathered up the following supplies

I didn't have any orange card stock so I printed off the size that I needed.
Next I cut my panels to size and then the wrapping of the twill began.
Now the sad story begins.   The twill that I had ordered from
OWSE was not any kind of twill that I was familiar with.
Thin and whimpy not strong and sturdy like twill should be.  

!!! Phooey !!!
It looks terrible.
No comparison to what Jamie used for her card.  I didn't want anyone
else being as disappointed in the product as I was so it is no
longer available in the OWSE shop.

I did list the instructions from
Paper Craft Magazine for you.  I've subscribed to
this magazine for quite awhile now and I'm never disappointed
in the cards shown.  Lot's of good ideas.
