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!


  1. I can definitely relate to the almost empty nest! We drive our fourth child to college tomorrow and then we will be down to one left at home, too. We told our last she can't ever It goes by so fast...doesn't it?
