Whiff Of Joy Challenge #45 Bling / Cute Card Thursday Challenge#75 New Beginnings
Well my deep apologies to my fantastic followers who hung on while I found my umph. I did not loose my Mojo as seems to have happened to my some of my blogger friends. I just took a couple of days off to take the kids to Ohio to Cedar Point Amusement Park, and when I got back I just couldn't get my umph going to get back to card making. Then the worst thing happened. I started reading the 2nd book in the Twillight series. OMG, I couldn't stop reading. I never read like that, but over 500 pages in a week. I bought the 3rd one, and it's sitting on my counter calling me, but I promised myself that until I got a few cards done, I wasn't touching it. LOL. So here's my little card that I came up with. Whiff of Joy's Challenge this week is to use as much bling as possible. I added little pink rhinestone flowers to her hair, and glittered the baby's blanket. I wasn't sure that was enough bling so I edged my new Nestability template with glitter and added a flower rhinestone on either side of my new Nestability tag. I tried to do the grass technic that I learned from the UBER TALENTED Paula Tracy on Monday of last week. See Paula, this one doesn't look like she's on the edge of a swamp. LOL. I finished it off with another technic of Paula's sponging the color of ink called Wheat around the edges to soften it. Love how it turned out. For Cute Card Thursday their challenge this week was for a New Beginnings card. This card and stamp was perfect for it. I have had 3 neices in the last year have their first babies, and I have a nephew trying to start a family. This card will come in handy. I colored with my lyra pencil crayons and mineral spirits, and my sentiment is from My Sentaments Exactly. It's from my baby collection. Sorry for the lull in cards, but I am back now.
