Hello there! I have a card today that was up on the SRM blog a couple of days ago.
It uses a new stamp set called Big Hello!
Card created by Michele Kovack
I stamped the sentiment and the faux stitching and embossed it in gold.  I did a water color wash using shades of blue, gray, and gold.  I popped up the panel using foam tape from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L and adhered gold glittery leaves underneath it.

I added a bit of silk ribbon, gold yarn, and a scattering of sequins to finish the card.

Brian and I are headed out today with Cortney to some new hamburger place he discovered.  A heavy metal hamburger joint.  He tells me we should punk up Cort's hair and get her a tattoo! LOL!  Maybe a temporary one I told him. ;) 
My husband is always looking for new things to I guess I better pull out my AC/DC T-shirt! 
I will be back tomorrow with another JustRite be sure to pop by!

JustRite September Release-Christmas Handwritten Sentiments!

Happy Friday to you!
I am excited it is the weekend! For no reason in particular, but to relax and maybe find an hour or two to sneak off to my craft room. 
Today I am sharing another new set by JustRite called, Christmas Handwritten Sentiments.  The font is gorgeous and I love the versatility of this set!
Box created by Michele Kovack
The box was cut using my Silhouette. I added a bit of glossy accents and pearls to dress it up a bit.

Just Playing Around...

Sometimes you just have to play.
Surround yourself with supplies that inspire you and see where it takes you.
I probably shouldn't, nor do I really have the time since I have DT commitments. 
But I do anyway.
I am in love with my Zig Kuretake Clean Color markers. I can't get enough of them.
I just want to water color everything in sight these days!
So a few nights ago, I allowed myself to play....experiment....and just find my much needed solace.

I cut the balloons using my Silhouette. Everything here was water colored....then glossy accented (see how I made that a verb?), and glittered.

Life is funny these days.
And maybe, just maybe the pendulum is swinging in my favor. 
I will have news to share in the next couple of months.
It is exciting, scary, emotional.....all wrapped up in one.
Until then.....thank you for your kindness.
Have a great day!

JustRite is BACK!

Good morning! 
I am thrilled to announce that JustRite is BACK! They are under new management and already developing new products! I am so excited for them and for me! ;)  I've missed my JustRite family!
So no more dilly's new set is called Multi-Step Poinsettia. There is nothing prettier at Christmas than seeing these gorgeous plants!
To help you with stamping them, there is a downloadable PDF file that you can find HERE. 
I stamped mine various times, added splashes of color using my brush and water colors.  I also added gold Stickles to the centers of the flowers.  I tied black silk ribbon from Stamp Simply and a couple of gold jingle bells.  
For more inspiration be sure to visit the other gals' blogs and head on over to the JustRite Blog to see the entire stamp set!

Have a beautiful day!
