Resurrecting Old Supplies and Using Them With New Ones!

Created by Michele Kovack
I have had so much more time in my craft room this week and am completely loving it!  It's been a long time since I've been able to craft consistently.  I've been reviewing my older stamps and came across this cute little watermelon and sentiment. The watermelon image is from Hambo stamps (circa 2002!).  Remember this company?  ;)  And the sentiment is from A Muse.  
I am not sure how true the sentiment is....but we'll roll with it!

I stenciled the sun using Tim Holtz inks in yellows.  I added a shadow using gray Copics. The watermelon was colored and then I added a bit of grass and green stippling. I stamped the sentiment and popped it up vertically. I added a few sequins and a bit of yellow twine

Life hasn't been a breeze for this little cutie. 
She had to have emergency surgery on Thursday to take out a very large bladder stone. She is doing much better now, but not too happy about having to wear this cone!  I did end up going to Pet Smart to buy a soft one, but couldn't resist taking her picture first!

Life is Good and Post Fourth of July Hangover!

Created by Michele Kovack
Good morning! How was your holiday weekend?
Mine was filled with family and friends! Friday night, Saturday, and Monday we had company.  AND we managed to swim with Cortney every single day she was home! Yesterday I was pretty tired from all of the socializing, swimming, eating, and drinking the occasional cocktail.... ;)  
So that explains my lack of posts! 
So today, I am back into my normal routine and have a card on the SRM blog.

I used a stencil and Tim Holtz distress inks for the background as well as the shaker portion of the card.  I used this adorable sticker from SRM called, We've Got Your Sticker Plus/Birdie as the focal point of my card....along with the sentiment.  I used lots of adhesive foam tape from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L to adhere everything.  A few sequins and a bit of twine finished off the card.

I am so excited to announce that next week my husband and I are going on our first vacation alone in 23 years!  We are heading to San Francisco for 5 days!  He has planned a jam packed week complete with Sonoma Valley Wine tour, Alcatraz, Lombard Street, The Wharf, Bus tour.....
I have my camera be prepared for an onslaught of pictures! ;)
Thank you for stopping by today!!!
