Hello & Happy Friday Friends!! Busy, Busy am I today I tell ya---oh my! Today is my son's 12th birthday--Happy Birthday Riley!! He has 4 friends coming over at 3 today for a sleepover and hubby is taking them laser tagging too. We got Quizno's sandwich platter and pizza's for dinner---his 2 favorite foods and then chocolate/chocolate cake for dessert :o) We did get most of his presents yesterday, but his big present which is an air hockey table is delayed and won't be here until next week, darn it all--I had wanted to get it set up so the boys could all play but no such luck. He got lots of video games and extra controllers for his XBox 360 so he's set for the evening along with a stack of movies :o) Hopefully my house will survive 5 12 year old boys, lol!
-I finished a 4 part video on "Coloring with Copics to look like Distress Inks" yesterday--whew it was a long one that I had to cut into 4 parts. You can find them HERE or access them at the top of my blog under "Tutorials/Templates" header.
-Susana's Custom Art & Card Design will be having a NEW Elisabeth Bell Release next Friday, Feb 19th! Blog Candy starts on the 15th!! These are such lil' cuties!
Lots of distressing with my distress tool and inking of edges--the sentiment is from a Heidi Grace set I have (find it HERE and it's on sale-bargain). I bought these paper doilies awhile ago and I've been itching to use them--I inked it up to distress the white a bit. The mini roses are by Prima--buy them HERE--and I just twirled the stems around a paintbrush. I added a few stickles and some diamond glaze on the heart arrows and the bow was made with my fave Bow Easy!
