HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!!!!!!

WOW I can't believe we are into 2017 already!!! 
The time has surely flown by me and I can't 
believe my last post was in last July!!!!!
My life has been a busy one. I have still
made cards .... just haven't made time to
blog about them....Sorry!!!!

So I have started off the New Year by making
some needed Thank You cards to some
special friends who made my 
Christmas extra special!!!
I ink blended up some Tim Holtz
distress water color paper with various
distress inks and I tried out a NEW to 
me technique called Camouflage.  I have 
seen various people in the blogger land do
it and over Christmas break I searched out a 
YouTube video on how to do it and gave it a try!!!





I used my MOST Favorite Lawn Fawn stamp set on them to
Mermaid For You!!!  The fishes are from my sticker stash.
I LOVE they way they came out.  I cut out the Thanks
6 times in white cardstock and glued on top of all them
the Thanks I cut out of the distress cardstock. My card
base is Bermuda Bay by Stampin' Up.

Tank You.....

Hi Crafty Friends!!!
Hope everyone had a Fabulous weekend!!!
Still doing the remodel at our house but I 
was able to crank out some "Tank You" you cards!
I have several people to Thank for the wonderful 
Birthday gifts I received recently.  I saw this wonderful
card on Pinterest by Jessica Spencer not long ago 
using the cute Fintastic Friends set and I wanted to 
try my hand at casing it!!  Lawn Fawn stamps are so 
cute and practically anything you make with them comes out
Adorable!!!  I used the Merman Lawn Fawn ink for the 
bubbles inside the heart.  I used a Spellbinder heart die
to cut out a heart and used the negative piece to 
stamp all the bubbles in the heart shape. I layerd that
front panel on Stampin' Up Pool Party card stock and 
thought it matched quite well with the Merman ink.
After I colored up all the fish bowls and placed the 
fish inside I put glossy accents all over them and let
them dry to make them look like glass bowls.  I love 
the way they turned out.  




I heat embossed all the sentiments too!!
I am entering my card into a few challenges:

Marker Pop ~ #99 It's all about the die cuts

Lawn Scaping challenge ~ #133 Mood Board Inspired
