Happy, happy Friday everyone! I'm back w/ my mojo squarely strapped on, LOL! Sometimes ya just need a breather to clear your head, YKWIM!!? Tomorrow is my daughter's 13th birthday (egads, I'm feelin' old already), so tonight she has having her 3 best buds over for a sleepover. I'm taking them to the movies to see "17 Again" although I'm not allowed in the same theater--I've been banned, LOL! So hubby, me & Riley are going to see "Monsters vs. Aliens" in 3D (which will surely give me a migraine, 3D makes me fuzzy, how 'bout you?). So we compromised on her presents and got her a netbook and some giftcards. The netbook is a little cheaper than a full laptop and has everything she wants including a webcam so it will work for now :o) And since she broke my camera the other day (SOB), I now have to scrounge money up to get another one--and I REALLY loved my camera :o( And on Sunday we're off to the Baltimore Zoo for the day--its supposed to be in the mid-80's all weekend (Yay) so I'm thrilled! Alrighty, enuff chitter-chatter from me today, hee hee!
So, today I made 2 cards using this week's SCS sketch challenge #225--I really liked it! I finally got all my new PTI goodies the other day, so I had to break them out to play! This PTI set "Men of Life" isn't new (just new to me) and I have soooo many occasions to use this set for! I made this card for my dad for this upcoming Father's Day (yes, I'm wayyy ahead of the game). He has a sailboat and loves spending time out on the Chesapeake Bay fishing & sailing--and he retires on the 30th so my mom is hoping he spends lots of time on the boat (get my drift) LMBO!! Anywho, I really like how this turned out! The dp & cs are from PTI and I wrapped some twine around the card and attached a Blue Moon fish charm to it!
The boat was stamped twice, I cut the second set out & popped it up w/ dimensionals & then applied a good layer of diamond glaze on top! Aren't those star buttons fun? They're from my large button stash :o)
Second card uses the brand, spankin' new PTI set "Tea for Two"--I have soooo many fabby ideas for this set! But today I just made a card that can be used for multiple occasions including Mother's Day! I flipped the sketch this time & used some new PTI dp called "Green Tea Leaves"-so pretty! I stamped one of the teapots onto vanilla cs & then colored part of it w/ a green copic to match the PTI "spring moss" cs. I added some red & cream pearls and also some diamond glaze on top of the teapot!
The ribbon is from PTI and I made my own hatpin using some beads from my stash & this gorgeous handwrapped silk bead (soon available in multiple colors at Susana's store)! I just love it!!
Hope you have a fabulous weekend--I'm sure I'm in for a loud & sleepless nite (w/ 4 teenage girls boppin' around, lol)! See ya back here tomorrow!
