I know they would love it if you stopped by their blogs to see what they came up with using these colors.

More my card today I decided on something simple using faux postage.  I saw Debby do this technique last weekend at Stampaway and decided I needed to try it again.  Instead of using the stencil brushes like Debby does (because I haven’t developed the knack for them yet), I use my Ranger ink blending tools.

There’s a fabulous tutorial on this technique on the Just For Fun® BlogFaux Postage.

That’s all I have today, but to say thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a great weekend!

Good Friday morning!  First just let me say that this has been one hell of a week!  Not only am I running around like crazy trying to clean this house (because lord only knows that I NEVER clean) but we are also getting ready to move Mallory back to school.  It looks like I’m going to have to skip my trip to Stampaway this weekend.  Was I told when we would be packing up the U-Haul with all the stuff Mallory is taking back?  NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO, I think not!  Anyhoo, that’s Saturday!  I might add though that when we do get everything out of the basement, it looks like I’m going to be able to have a dedicated class room.  Yes, yes, yes!  I know for sure room for two tables . . . and it could be that I move part of my studio out to the middle for even more room!

Because of all the crap that I’ve been dealing with this week I was unable to get my card finished for today’s challenge.  However, I will be back a little later with a card.  This is one challenge I don’t want to miss.

Today’s colors for the challenge are:

Happy Smiley from millan.net  I can’t believe that its already Friday . . .  this week has seemed to fly by!  Have I gotten anything important done?  I did get my tutorial written yesterday.  Look for it next Wednesday at Splitcoaststampers.  I guaranty you’ll love it!

Since it’s Friday it also means that it’s time for another Just For Fun® Friday.  I don’t remember who suggested the colors for today’s Color Challenge, but they were fun.  So without further adieu . . .

I decided to go masculine with these colors today.  My god I even used brads!  I can’t remember the last time I used brads on a card . . . . AND I didn’t even sew! Smiley from millan.net

I colored the car with Copic Markers then mounted it on Oval Nestabilities.  The sentiment “Have a bitchin’ Birthday!” absolutely cracks me up . . . . how many other times could we use this . . . Would it be good for a bitchy friend?  You know we ALL have them!  Okay I lost track . . . the sentiment is on a Ribbon Tag from Spellbinders™.

Well, that’s all I have for today.  Thanks for stopping by and remember . .  . life is short, make the most of each day!

Good Monday morning!  I hope y’all had a great weekend and you’re all refreshed and ready to start a new week.  Personally I’m struggling with it  . . . . but hey, we all can’t be rosy . . .  but we can be peachy! 

So I got myself unpacked, laundry done, stuff carried into the studio and I’m ready to start designing.  I came back with some great ideas and a few special things to play with.  What’s that?  You want to know what those special things are?  Nope not gonna tell yet because if I did what would the secret and surprise be.  Stayed tuned though because you are going to love it!

Now that CHA is over I’m able to show you some of my favorite projects I did for the booth.  This one today is way to fun and I could hardly wait to show it to you.

GRAVEYARD

The background is a chipboard page that was covered in ink and then stamped on with the haunted house and the weeds in the foreground.  I knew from the get go when I saw these new graveyard die templates exactly what I wanted to do.  All the gravestones and the witch were cut from Grunge Paper.  The border piece was mounted on the outside of scrap wood trim that was painted black.  The other two headstones were popped up in the back at different heights.

GRAVEYARD CLOSEUP

I loved this project and had such fun making it.  It’s always fun when you first see something, envision the outcome, and pull it off! 

Well, I guess that’s all I have for today.  I need to run some errands and spend some time with Mallory.  It won’t be long until she’s back at school!  Thanks for stopping by and remember . . . life is short, enjoy the adventures of the day!

If you would like to see some fabulous card and gather some more inspiration, give them a visit.  They would really LOVE it!

Okay, here’s my card.  This is an odd sized little card . . . . 6-1/4” x 4-1/2”.  It’s tall so I could get the image to fit and have some extra space.    The dress form and hat are colored with Copic Markers.  I stamped the hat three times so I could pop up the hat band and the flower.

Thanks for stopping by today and remember . .  . life is short, do as you damn well please!
