You have got to check these kits full of all kinds of goodies! On to my card....let me know what you think! Have a great weekend!

Be Mine

Hello ladies......good evening! What a busy day.....wasn't sure I was gonna make it! I ended up doing some shopping with the family....I bought some scrappy stuff at Michaels [ so hard to talk the boys into waiting], bought some Yankee candles [some new scents for fall] mmm sweet! Then had to buy my son some tennis hard to find his size....15....we usually buy online. Well enough chatting and down to business.....I am cutting it close as it is. I have my 2 sketches 4 you the sketch! I am not usually a big DCWV fan but love the Rustic and Mod pretty I could not resist. The paper I used was from the Rustic were prima sprayed with glimmer mist and butterfly is a Martha Stewart punch. I love the vintage feel don't you? Must fly to get this posted.....have a great weekend!

First day of school....

And time ticks away......only 2 years left and I will have an empty nest. My time is short with my don't realize it until you only have 1 left in the nest. Anyone relate out there? Well onto todays post......Card Patterns challenge. I love there easy to work with! For my card I thought I would try some new techniques.....first I mixed 2 different distress crackle paints together to match my easy to do....a little of each on a pallet mix and paint. Then I did some inking on the tag and dropped with water and heat with a heat gun. Then embossed image with distress ink. I really like the effect....what about you? Do you like trying new things? I had fun with this! Hope you enjoy the back soon!

Remember forever

Hello all....good evening! I hope you are all enjoying your weekend. Thought I would post this here. I used a sketch from Creative scrappers blogspot....sketch the sketch! I used the Junebug collection from Basicgrey. I believe all I have left are scraps Well I am a big fan of quotes and songs as inspiration.....sometimes I need that help especially when it comes to journalling. Here is what this quote says....."Come, Grandma, walk with me be the best kid I can be. Take me here and take me me how much you care. The many hours we share together....will be the times I'll remember forever." Well thats all folks! Have a great Sunday!!
