Too Long

WOW! It has been way too long since I posted on my blog
but I'm still here!

This past weekend I got to spend several hours with my bestie who lives about 45 minutes away but with her having a senior in high school, me having a freshmen in college (who commutes to the university), and both of us with an additional child well, we're super busy people who just don't make enough time for each other. This called for a nice lunch with drinks, pedicures & shopping!

We hit up Tuesday Morning, here's my haul:

The came Sunday and I had some downtime in the afternoon so I got busy with my awesome new Tim Holtz Oxide Ink Pads ( LOVE THEM!!! ) and made this:

I had so much fun making it, I have another card started with the bird die you can see and also a scrapbook layout that is nagging me to use with this new paper pack! My head is a busy place ;-)

Have a beautiful day!

Halloween Twilight

oh my goodness, I didn't realize just how long it's been since I created something & blogged! My friend told me I need to enter Skipping Stones Design's challenge and since I love Halloween, it's was super easy for me! Plus I adore getting to use this Jessica Lynn Originals stamp called Halloween Twilight along with papers my friend Marilynn sent

Two Paper Divas has a great little sketch going right now, my friend Terri told me I should play along. So today on my graduation recovery day, I played with some paper, a little ink, and some scissors! What a great way to recover ;)
I used Carta Bella 6x6 Paper Pad called Beautiful Moments, I distressed the edges & stamped using Tim Holtz Ground Espresso, I even fussy cut out the pieces of the flower!

Here's where you can enter & the sketch itsself:

So long, Fair well

Oh no, my week is over... time to take off my crown and pass it along to the next GIU GalHopefully I have inspired you to create something this week!

Sometimes this sentiment is harder to realize than others as I strive for perfection way too often, so I have to tell myself
"dood you are NOT perfect, get over yourself"

Speaking of imperfect, this background was super for with dripping Tim Holtz Distress Inks, spritzing with water, patting with a paper towel and repeating until it looked like this.
First this I did was stamp the image and butterfly wings from Nov. 2013 KOM with Ranger Archival Ink in Black, then I began the background journey and added the sentiment,
Donna Downey's As I See It, once all that was dry.
I used watercolors to paint in the butterfly wings and topped that with a pretty heavy coat of Wink of Stella (no matter how hard I try, I cannot photograph that stuff so just imagine sparkles)

Now don't forget to leave me a comment for a chance to win  random stamps from Unity Stamp Company. If you missed a previous day this week, no worries just go back and comment on those creations now!

Day 4 of my GIU week

Valentine's Day will be here before you know it!
I always look forward to my husband fumbling with what to get me
and my two sons attempts at helping him out on this...
I get a lot of M&M's
they try

Featuring: ...Everything Love stamp set
I started this one off with a blank white card front, and decided the heart should be embossed
Zing in Silver to the rescue.
Once that was heat set, I dripped Tim Holtz Distress Inks down from the top then sprayed with water to create a marbling effect.
Next came the simple stamping of the sentiment.
I sat & looked & looked before deciding it just needed more then I remembered my
Prima flower jar! Topped those off with a little bling from Imaginisce and *Boom*
Valentine's Day!

Leave me some love for a chance to win  random stamps from Unity Stamp Company. If you missed a day this week, just go back to Monday and work your way through my posts for better odds of winning. See you tomorrow for my grand finale!
