Good morning. Hope you had a great weekend! I sure did. One of the attorneys in my office gave us tickets to Saturday’s Florida Panthers (hockey) game. It was crazy close - closer than we’ve ever sat before - row 8!!! It was amazing. We took Paige & Christian and they had a blast!!! I also took my mom for a pedi on Sunday. It’s always nice to spend that time together. She’s having a rough week. Just gotta keep remembering who’s in charge ;).
I’ve been super busy putting together my craftiness for April’s Paper Niche Kit. So much goodness!!! It’s been hard to stop! I did take a breather from it to make a card to enter into the Lawnscaping Bonus/Wee Memories #48 Challenge.
I just love both of these challenges so much. I haven’t participated in the Wee Memories Challenges but once or twice, but I’m really going to make an effort to do so from now on. Jenny is so lovely and FULL of inspiration. You can check out today’s post to see how amazing she is with twine!!! Good Lord!
Ok, so my card is a CASEd card, kinda. I saw Nichol Magouirk’s card on the Lawn Fawn Blog last week and made a mental note that I had give something like it a try. She has such amazing ideas!! So, here is my card:
I popped up the pics with foamies for extra fun!
This Thursday will be My & Sal’s 10 year (wedding) anniversary. I wanted to make a card that kind of reflected our dating years. Walking around looking at the stars. I had lots of fun making it. I started off with yellow (Bazzil) cardstock and stamped (with Versamark)/heat embossed (in Clear) the adorable Lawn Fawn Star Backdrop stamp. Then I inked that up with Ranger’s Black Soot Distress Ink and the ink blending tool, to create the night sky. The “ground” is white Bristol (art paper) that I inked up with Shabby Shutters and Peeled paint. I stamped the grass (from Critters in the Burbs) using both inks also. My Polaroid Pics are also stamped onto the Bristol paper and then inked with Antique Linnen for a worn look. The sentiment is from Sophie’s Sentiments.
Next I stamped and Copic colored the Doggies (also Critters in the Burbs). As you can see, I used Marie’s fabulous technique again to make a mirror/reversed image of the doggy - so they could face each other. I really am so happy to have learned this technique. It’s so much fun!! I filled in the dog tags with Glossy Accents to make them realistic. Then I added a few bakers twine bows... because everything’s better with twine (agreed?) And finished it off with a heart from Silly Valentine.
Ok, that's all for me today. Are you playing in these Challenges?? You totally should - double the chance to win!! Can't wait to see what everyone comes up with. have a great day!!
