WOW! is all I can say for how long it's been that I posted on here. A LOT has happened in my life over the past 2 years.
First, I got married in September 2013 to my best friend, lover and soul mate!!! One of the best things to happen to me in a long time!!
Second, my son and his girlfriend, gifted me with another grandchild!!! That make 4 from him alone!!! My husband also has 3 children, 2 girls and a boy. The girls each have children of their own, a total of 4 with a fifth one due October 14th 2015. After that bundle of boy joy arrives, we will have 9 grandchildren between us!!! Crazy!!
Third, we have moved from Jackson to Kalamazoo, MI. The move was for my job and I love living in Kazoo!!
I am still an SU! demo, 10 years this year! Still love what I do with this and hope to keep doing it for a while!
Now on to the stamping!!! The new SU! catalog for 2015-16 boasts some awesome new products. From stamp sets, to card stock to embellishments, I"m not sure where to start on my verrrry long wish list!
One of the first sets I wanted was the new Ronald McDonald set. In past years I've been on the fence with these sets, but this year I was pushed over it, in a good way!! Not only does this set offer multiple possibilities for creating, but it has a coordinating punch!!! Eeeck that is just so cool and makes using this set so much easier!!!
The two cards I have for you were created with the PROVERBial Stampers August 2015 Color and Sketch challenges. The first is the color challenge using Tangelo Twist, Old Olive and Crushed Curry. I also used the Sketch & Stamp sketch - SB#116. Quick and simple sketch!
My second card uses the PROVERBial Stampers sketch and the same colors.
On the little flowers and bird, I put Crystal Effects on them to help give the card an extra little pop. Also, the sentiment was colored with my markers, individually in sets, to get it to fit onto a circle piece. More leftover burlap strands too! The background panel doesn't show as well as I hoped, but it was done by using SU! markers directly onto my clear block "E" spritzed about 10 times with water and then stamped onto watercolor paper.
Hope you like these samples and can't wait to inspire you with more creativity now!!!
