Card Creations...

I submitted a few cards to a|muse studio Consultant Showcase at the National Convention in New Orleans this coming January. So excited that I am going to be able to go for the weekend. All of the cards I made use a|muse studio products.

Ooops a whole month?

Guess I've been neglecting my blog again. A whole month in between posts is not a good thing. So hopefully, now that school has started back up I will get back into blogging regularly. At least, that is my goal.

Rocket Thank You

This is the very first image from a*muse studio that I've inked up. The rocket was included in my Starter Samplers, but it's also in the Quick and Easy Valentine stamp set. I needed some thank you cards for Andrew's birthday and I thought this was a fun image to use.
All of the cardstock is from Stampin' Up, which I need to use so I can buy new from a*muse studio. I stamped a large circle on the blue base card in a*muse studio Sky ink. The rocket was stamped with Momento Black on white cardstock. I colored the rocket with Copic markers and cut it out and mounted it with 3D dimensional. The red crystals are from Swvorski.

Busy Weekend

We had guests over Saturday night for dinner. Because of the heat, our BBQ was inside, instead of outside. Our friends had a very nice time and it was so good to be around adults for once, LOL. I can only take so much kid talk. I've been working on some pinwheel cards, which I've seen in some galleries on SCS. They were much easier than I thought. Hopefully tomorrow my a*muse studio starter kit will arrive. I've been waiting for it an entire week, ugh! It's going to be fun to play with all the new stuff.

While I eagerly wait for my a*muse studio starter kit, I have been practicing coloring with my Copic markers. Copics are very hot right now as a coloring medium in all varieties of paper crafts. a*muse studio carries a large selection of these alcohol-based markers. My coloring technique is improving, but practice is always a good thing. I may take a class on Copics, but in the mean time I'm going to find tutorials on line.

Happy Birthday, Andrew!

Today Andrew turned 10 years old. Welcome to double-digits kiddo. To celebrate, we had a nice dinner at Olive Garden, which he talked about all week. With the exception of many visits to the bathroom by Andrew, we all had a nice time. My baby isn't so little anymore.

Blogging can be hard work...

...and very frustrating. I was working with another blog website but something happened and I could not see my blog anymore. Darn it! So I'm going to give blogger a try.
