I'm Baaaaaack!


It is Wednesday night, and I am totally pooped! We spent way tooo much time in the sun swimming! I love going to Wisconsin Dells every year with my Mom and my Step Dad. The kids have fun swimming, going out to eat, swimming, playing pee wee golf, swimming, playing arcade games, swimming.....you get the picture! My sister met us there for the day today with her 2 little ones. My nephew is turning 2 tomorrow and my niece Katie is 6 weeks old. Alex the 2 year old is such a dare devil! He was going down all the slides! No fear at all! I will post some happy mail I got from Michelle Weaver....tomorrow! As well as some pics of our mini get away!


I am going to post this card quick like cuz it was supposed to be posted Monday.... This was for the challenge over at Bitten by the Bug. You were to use the wheelbarrow from the Walk in my Garden Cartridge. Here is my take on this challenge. I used the "wood" method. (Don't think this is really what this technique is called, but as I said, I am pooped!) I took the white craft ink and then swiped the brown ink over it to give it a faux wood look. I then cut out the wheelbarrow using my Cricut. The DP is from Basic Grey. The sentiment Happy is from Heidi Swapp. The word Fall is from My Favorite Things. The apples are from a SU! set...and at the moment can't remember what the set is called. I colored the apples with my PRismas and Gamsol, then added Crystal lacquer to them. I also sewed on this card and did some distressing. It still needed something, so I added some photo corners and buttons to dress it up a bit! Well, I will be back tomorrow....will post more then...I am going to go to bed and catch some zzzzz's!
