Day 2 Mask-erade

I know 2 days in a row with this blogging thing, crazy huh. For day two I copied my idea from Jennifer McGuire. I'm not one for copying exactly like someone else but she is amazing at making two cards at the same time and I wanted to give that a try. Here are my two cards:

The flower stamp was a combo of Mama Elephant and Lawn Fawn. The sentiments are from Close to My Heart. The inks are various Hero Arts shadow inks. The heart die is from Hero Arts. 

I am quite happy how they turned out. Not to happy with the photos but it will have to do until my photo station gets set up. again. Funny how we moved into this house over a year ago and we still have some things in boxes. By the time we get unpacked AND organized we'll end up moving to a new house. 

Happy days, now to make a card for day 3 and 4.

Day 1 Mask-erade

I know your must be thinking...What? Blogging twice in one day?? 

A simple masking of flowers, it came out pretty decent. It was super late, when I colored them. Note to self-sleep then color. I used my new Zig clean color real brush pens to color them. They are a joy to use, I adore them. I baught a 24 pack from Amazon then bought a bunch of individuals pens online from Blick. (FYI Blicks shipping prices are pretty high so make it count.) I adore these pens. I'll have to do a post on them sometime. Keep this writing train going. Anywho day one's card based off of Kristina Werners video:

The stamp set is from Simon Says Stamp.  I need to get the photo tent up but until then these photos will have to do. I used post it notes to mask. I've kept them so I now have mask for the flowers anytime I need one.

Another Year, Well Almost

Wow, funny how times flies. It's been almost a year since my last post and since I was last able to do any crafting. I am happy to report I am back into crafting and plan on doing more of the blogging stuff, as life will permit me that is.

A quick over view of this past year. I've been the sole caretaker for my mom and man it's work, it's like having a toddler without all the fun of a toddler. Mom is fun some days don't get me wrong but it's still difficult. Last Christmas we lost our adorable puppy Wash, he was hit by a car. Don't cry to hard, the Lord has him now and I couldn't think of a better place to be. Plus with his passing we have been able to help other dogs by becoming foster "parents". It's been a fun experience. We are on foster number 5 a year old boxer mix, she's been fun to have around. We remodeled the Living room, it was a hideous peach orange color, it looks so much nicer now that we re did it. I've got some vegetables growing in the garden hopefully they will do well, I'll post pictures if they do. Last fall we celebrated our wedding anniversary in Seattle and Portland areas. It was awesome. We would move to Portland in heart beat if we could, just loved it up there.

I've been crafting again Yay! I really missed it and am a bit rusty. I decided to join the Mask-erade online class to get my creative mojo flowing again. It has been fun, I'll be posting my cards here shortly.

That's my update what have you all been up to?
