I'm sure Condoleeza Rice and JK Rowling do this sort of thing all the time.
I got up to the door of Starbucks, where the sock finally gave up, slithered down my arm and plopped onto the ground.
I was mortified.
I wish I had had the presence of mind to pick it up and yell "DOBBY IS FREE!!"
But I just stuck it in the waistband of my tennis skirt and pretended it didn't happen.
Happy first day of summer! This year, Austin is as close to on schedule as it's ever been, thanks to a really unusually cool spring. It was only 94 yesterday which is unheard of for the summer solstice!
I did two challenges today - the Free For All Friday challenge to make a summery card, and the Mix-Ability challenge, which is to make brilliant pastels - use bright colors and then tone them down with paint or Gesso.
I stamped flowers from Flower Shop in Crushed Curry, Melon Mambo and Coastal Cabana, punched them out with the matching Pansy Punch, and then used an ITunes freebie card from Starbucks and some white gesso to do Kyra's nifty trick from this video. Then I stamped the flowers in full strength ink on the card base for a shadow and popped them up. The greeting is in Baked Brown Sugar from Regarding Dahlias.
My advice for you this Friday?
Check yourself for socks before you leave the house.
