the Sky’s the Limit…

Hello Everyone! The school year is over for my oldest (college) and just about over for my little one. She graduates Kindergarten next Wednesday! Imagine that! Seems like just yesterday she was a teeny tiny, less than 4lb baby! Anyway, my point… it seems that the weeks are just SO busy anymore. Between doctor’s appointments & birthday parties, there is always something. I do, however, find time to do some paper-crafting, most nights. Even if it’s just for a little bit.

The card I have for you today is a card I can admit to liking a WHOLE lot. The pictures don’t seem to do it justice. I wanted to do something different with the Lawn Fawn stamp set and I believe I have. I stamped the images on vellum with Versamark & then heat embossed with gold embossing powder. I then colored them from the back with Copic markers, using the following markers: BG45, BG49, B02, Y28, R22. I adhered the images with small amounts of Tombow Mono Multi Liquid Glue.

Well, that’s all for now!  Have a great weekend everyone!

Peace Out,

Hello Everyone! I am beyond THRILLED to be a part of this BLOG HOP!  For oh so many reasons! Just to name a couple:

#1 – I am SO thankful to our service men and women for the sacrifices that they AND their families make to keep us FREE & SAFE!

#2 – This is my very FIRST blog hop!  Or at least the very first one I’ve ever participated in by sharing my work.

My card is based on Sketch Challenge #152:

Oh My… Lucky Stars… Lawn Fawn in the house!

Hello Everyone!  Over the weekend I went to a day crop on Saturday.  I didn’t get a whole lot done, but I do enjoy the socialization aspect of it all!  Anyway, just when I thought my day couldn’t get any better, I came home that night to find that I had HAPPY MAIL from Lawn Fawn!!!!!  Yep… you betcha!  The newest releases!  Heaven in a box!  Here is the very first card made with the puffy star stackables dies & the lucky stars stamp set!  I also used bakers twine in the middle of the star, which is a new technique for me.  I’ve used it to tie bows and such, but never like this.  I think I like it.  It gives it a real 3 dimensional look.
