Time for a new set of Weekly Specials!



It's time for a new set of Weekly Deals! You can purchase these HERE

Not much else to share today. I have been busy sorting my photos (years worth) so that I can begin using Project Life by Stampin' Up! I have also been planning out some classes. Look for more information about them soon. I'm trying to do quite a few months worth but it's hard to pinpoint a particular day due to my daughter's extracurricular activities. I think the only activity I don't have a schedule for is soccer and it should be coming soon. 

Thanks for stopping by!

Thanks Very Much - Mojo Monday #353


A couple of weeks ago my family went on vacation to the Lake of the Ozarks. A friend of ours gave us a condo to use so I wanted to be able to thank him. I knew I wanted a few things for this card. First off, I needed a "masculine" feel to the card. Second, I wanted a sketch with layers. And third, I wanted to use a nautical theme.

Went with dark colors (Real Red and Night of Navy) to get the masculine feel. Mojo Monday's sketch this week was perfect for layers! To get the nautical theme I used Maritime DSP. Check, Check, Check!! Total win for me :D

It's been awhile since I've played in any challenges. I must admit it felt good. I hope to find some more time to do some creating! Thanks so much for stopping by!

Coloring Time with the New Blendabilities!


The new Blendabilities are here and boy are they fun!! I spent an evening coloring a few images and playing around. 

If you haven't heard Blendabilities are Stampin' Up!'s version of the Copic marker. I have had Copic Markers for quite some time so I'm a little familiar with coloring using them. The Blendabilities are fabulous and oh so much cheaper, lol! They are not refillable (like Copic Markers are) but I love how you get 3 colors (light, medium and dark) in a package so you are ready to start coloring right away. No time wasted trying to figure out what 3 colors to use...Stampin' Up! did the work for us!

Just like with Copic Markers, some colors blend easier than others. One of the hardest for me was the Coastal Cabana set. I really had to work on that mailbox (see above photo). Overall I give them a thumb up and at just $11.95 per package you can't go wrong!

Here is one of the images a colored turned into a card:


Thanks for stopping by! You can get all the products for this card on my site, HERE.
