Is it Thursday Already?

Why is it that the week flies by when you're off, but moves at a snail's pace when at work? I can not believe it is Thursday already! Ugh! I have been so busy with catching up with friends and family that my crafty time has been minimal. I did manage, however, to play along with the challenge over at the Crafty Secret's forum at SCS. (Hosted by Marcy!) The challenge was to create a "Home" card. Easy enough! I pulled out Crafty Secret's Home Sweet Home set and got busy!

I colored this image in with my Copics. When I was done, I took an old wash cloth, wet it with my bottle of blending solution, and dabbed the grass, tree trunk, and house. I love this technique because it gives the image a little added texture. The paper is by K & Company. (Wild Raspberry) I added a Cuttlebugged panel. My new love has been browsing the floral dept at Michaels for silk flowers to use for scrapbooking and cardmaking. I just remove the green plastic center and add a button, jute, and this time a Prima leaf behind it!


Off again today to see some girlfriends! Lunch and shopping! It doesn't get any better than that! : )
Thank you so much for your kind comments on yesterday's LO. I wasn't even sure if I wanted to post it. I was afraid it was too raw.......negative in a way. Thank you for letting me share it...... HUGS to you all! : )

Well you are quite the social butterfly this week, aren't you??!! ☺ Sounds like so much FUN!! Hanging out with girlfriends. LOVE this card!! Seriously when I first saw it, it totally reminds me of Hansel and Gretel house in the woods, lol. But that's a good thing--it's cute!
