Happy Monday....Just Kidding!

Hey everyone! How has your Monday been? Mondays back to work are always tough after really good weekends, aren't they? I thought the title of this post was pretty cute, especially since I'm going to share a card I made using the new photopolymer stamp set from Stampin' Up! called Just Kidding. I know, har har, good pun! lol

I made this for one of my very oldest (she's gonna kill me hehe) and "bestest" friends. We've been friends for 40 years! Yes, we were just toddlers. lol Seriously, we met in high school and even though more than 700 miles separate us, we have kept in touch all these years. I shared SU!'s FB post when this set was released and she commented "I'm getting this card for my birthday, aren't I?" Now I can't pass that up, can I?

Here's the inside of the card. I absolutely LOVE this set, it is so much fun!! There are just so many different ways to use it. Don't you love versatile sets? Nothing better than stretching your crafting dollars!

I colored the image with the now discontinued Blendabilities. I am really bummed that Stampin' Up! had to do that, but I am really impressed that they made that decision. I am very confident that they will find a solution and bring back some sort of alcohol marker.

Well, I hope you like my card, I'm pretty sure she's going to like it :) I am also entering this in the Fab Friday 60 challenge.

 Have a great week and I thank you for stopping by.

Sunday Evening

Hey everyone! How was your weekend? We've been super busy between work, family, and finishing up on our remodel, not to mention dealing with bronchitis. Yuck. Been a really bad year for everyone with this stuff, but I'm hoping I've gotten past the worse of it.

I wanted to share a non-Stampin' Up! card I made for a very close friend of ours. He turned 60 and I just couldn't pass up using my Cricut.

I haven't played with my Cricut in a really long time. It was one of the first big purchases I made for crafting. Whenever I make something with my Cricut I try to use up my scraps, and this card helped use up quite a bit. :)

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a good rest of your evening.

Happy March!

Hey everyone! How was your weekend? I'm still getting over bronchitis, so I've been laying low. I just wanted to share the cards we made at our February workshop.

The top card was created using the Bokeh effect. The girls really enjoyed it, very inky!!  :) The other two cards were cased from fellow demos.

I know this is really short, I just wanted to pop in and share some fun. As usual, I'm running late for work. lol  *sigh* someday maybe I'll get to stay home and "play" all day!!! I hope you have a really good week!! Take care and thanks for stopping by!
