I’m so glad that I finally get to do one of Kristina’s Challenges! I have browsed her blog for endless hours these past few weeks- she is so talented! The colors this week are so gorgeous, I couldn’t pass up the challenge this time. I was prepared to make a Christmas card, but I’m so in love with these new stamps that I just HAD to use them. Here is a sneak peek of the new 2009 DeNami Design collection….
Whew! It’s the end of my work week! I started this card on Tuesday, but haven’t had a chance to finish until tonight. I forgot that the computer is in the shop, so the scanner is not in service. It was so hard to get a picture of this card. I’m most likely going to scan this card once the scanner is connected again…..
Woohoo! Now the scanner is working again- I am back in business! :)
This week I have been itching to work on Kazan’s sketch, but didn’t get a chance to until today. I first made the B-day card, which was difficult since it had to be masculine. (This is a VERY hard thing for me- I LOVE pink and glitter too much!) It didn’t turn out as nicely as I wanted, but at least I got the card made. :) Since I already had practice with this sketch, I decided to make a baby card too. This one was SO much easier- Lots of pink, and I even got to use the polka dot ribbon!
I have been admiring all the sketches for quite a while, but never got up the courage to actually work on one. Lately, after looking at many different crafting blogs, I have been inspired to create some new projects. I was a little hesitant actually posting this, but I figured that since I haven’t created anything for quite a long time, it was a good start.
Yes, I was sick this whole weekend…actually, I am still not 100% better. I have a sore throat and my voice is raspy. (Thankful there wasn’t too many customers calling in today.) I was so excited to hang out with all of my siblings this weekend and go to a corn maze but alas, I was so under the weather that all I could do was lay in bed. I was also looking forward to going to the Bunko night at my church but that too never came to pass. Oh, quick side note: I have NEVER drank a whole cup of tea until this weekend. I don’t know if it’s because I have had so much lately, or my taste buds are messed up, but now I’m starting to like it! For those of you that know me well, this is a SHOCKER! Before work today I went and got some honey to go with my Vanilla Chai Tea…it was yummy! I do miss my Starbucks, but the word is that you’re supposed to stay away from dairy while you’re sick, and I’m also going to cut back on that habit….I really am! Well, my body is still fighting something and my eyes are getting very sleepy so I’m going to head to bed.
