Good morning. Didn’t have a chance to do the diva challenge yesterday. I certainly had plenty of time in the morning but I was busy working on my mom’s 90th birthday party. This morning I got up went to the gym when I came home I wanted to work on the diva challenge and realized when I got into my studio that I hadn’t finished my mother-in-law’s Mother’s Day card. Oops! I finished that card and my own mother’s Mother’s Day card here they are.
After I finish the cards I had a chance to work on the Diva challenge. And here that is.
I haven’t played around too much with Molygon. But it sure has a lot of potential.
Happy Friday. My DH’s birthday is this weekend so here is the card I’ve made for him.
On on another note it’s very warm here today. I wasn’t feeling well this morning at all so I thought I’d sit on my deck and relax in the sun. I could hear this rustling in a near by pine tree. So I got my binoculars and saw a large furry animal. At first I thought it was a squirrel building a nest, but with binoculars I could see this was no squirrel. Much larger. After much scrutiny and with the help of my neighbor we concluded it was a fisher, sometimes referred to as a fisher cat. Never saw one before. Hung around about an hour before it climbed down and wandered away.
I thought I’d work on a couple cards today based on a video I saw on StampTV. Gina K was showing a technique where you emboss only part of a card front. Here’s the link to her video. I loved the idea so I thought I’d try it out myself. For the first card I used an embossing folder from Spellbinders called Enchanted (ES-005). It doesn’t fit into my Vagabond embossing machine very well so the impression is very light. I used the Butterfly Kisses stamp set from Memory Box and Hero Arts ink. The sentiment is from Inkadinkado.
This second card card I used a Sizzix Embossing folder called Botanicals. The same stamp set for the butterflies, but the wooden stamp that I used for the sentiment doesn’t have a label on it. I think I got it years ago at Michaels in a set with about a dozen or so other wood stamps. The card base I used for both cards are from Memory Box. They are the only company I can find that sells blank colored cards with white on the inside. I can buy a pack of 20 or so of the same color. I think Hero Arts also sells colored card bases with white on the inside, but the packs of cards are multi-colored. They might be the same color family but not the same color.
We have a winter storm warning out for Friday morning into Saturday evening. I wish I didn’t have to work this weekend. I’d rather be home doing art than going to work in ice and snow.
