Will started Pre-School this week. He's at a different school this year and didn't know anyone in his class. I was really nervous for him - especially because this year he can ride the bus to school, and he has to switch buses once he gets to town. Being a shy kinda kid, I worried a bit about him. No need tho, he just took it all in stride and acted like it was no big deal. Whatta big boy! It sure saves me from a lot of excess driving all over tim-buck-to tho!!!
Anyway, there hasn't been a whole lot of real crafty time this week. I spent two days finishing up some stamp club and scrapbooking club projects for those who weren't able to attend this month. It's a service I'm more than happy to provide!!! Then I spent two days doing some much needed cleaning in the ol' crafty room. Had to move retired DSP papers into their new spot to make room for all the new DSP that I'm about to hoard!! I must do something with all of my retired paper - I'm running out of room!
And with that, my week was gone! UGH!!
Here is a card I've had in my stash to show you tho:

I'm a whole wheat kinda gal. It's a rare occassion when I buy white bread. I even prefer a wheat bun over white..... Today, I'm showing you some bleached wheat. Processed. Refined. What have you. My July Stamp Clubs worked on the Bleaching Technique. This gets you some really neat effects - and each turns out differently. Everytime. Here's the card:

And I am here for you! The past two days have felt so much like fall is just around the corner. The mornings have been cool, the humidity has been low. The temperature has been in the low 80's. These are the days that I LOVE! Fall, I am officially declaring my favorite season! I used to have a major toss up between fall and spring. But Fall is going to win me over. There are too many windy days associated with spring up here on top of our hill. And wind. well. it blows! Here's to you fall. With your beautiful colors, your crisp air, your warm afternoons. And to your apple crisp. My favorite dessert. Well, one of my faves! I love all dessert - just ask my rear!
Onto today's card. (aren't you loving my new found blogging time!)

Quick post for you today....I'm hoping to freeze some garden produce....so that will consume a good portion of the day. This card was one we did at Stamp Club back in June, when we used the brayer to add color to embossed images. This is the Vintage Wallpaper EF then I brayered over the top with Baja Breeze. Doesn't it really make the image pop? The large scallop at the bottom is actually several circles attached.
Because of the black card base, we duded up the inside...

So, you all know that I really like my coffee. And I had to have this Morning Cup Stamp Set. Wouldn't this be a fun card to receive when you are feeling under the weather?
Thursday, August 5, 2010
So, when I saw this adorable set in the new catalog - Morning Cup, it went immediately on my wish list. And one of the perks of being a Stampin' Up! demo - I was able to pick 4 free stamp sets due to my sales during Sale-A-Bration. So, this set was free. I love that!!!
Here, I used my markers and watercolor paper to give it some life-like shadows, etc. This is really simple, and I usually just pull some color off of my marker with a blender pen and then start where I want the darkest color, and gradually pull the color out into the light areas - where the sun or light would be hitting it. This is my favorite coloring tech.
So, what about you - what's your morning vice? Coffee, tea, soda......My hubbie has a Pepsi first thing every morning - blech!!!
I don't have a lot for today....see ya tomorrow....
