Happy Wednesday to you all! Row, row, row your boat---gently down Virginia streams…..LOL! I might need an Ark real soon cuz it has been torrential raining here in Virginia going on 3 days and we are supposed to have 8 more days. All this after all that darn rain from the first hurricane, we do NOT NEED it! I know out west does so I will gladly ship it out there to y’all ok? And help put out those nasty fires in CA and TX too! Praying for all my friends affected in those areas—stay safe! We had to sit in the pouring (and I mean pouring) rain yesterday evening to watch Alexa cheer for the football game. It was cold and miserable but we are devoted parents always and we muscled it out—but we felt so bad for the cheerleaders and football players! Nasty weather to be out in, blech!
Onto some happy news---I ALMOST PEED MY PANTS AND HYPERVENTILATED at the same time yesterday evening before I left for Alexa’s game. I had just gotten out of the shower & was checking email (yes I check it a lot, lol, cuz I get about 2000 emails a day ok) and saw that tickets were NOW on sale for fanclub members only for the Luke Bryan concert in Salem, VA! WOWWWEEEEE---I hurriedly logged in and entered 3 tickets and GUESS WHAT! I GOT FRONT ROW TIX PEOPLE---DID you hear me SCREAMING!? OMGoodness I was flapping my arns and jumping up and down squealing---poor hubby thought I was NUTS (oh yeah I am)! I am sooo pumped I cannot even tell ya---I love that man and now if I get backstage passes I just MIGHT DIEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!! LOL! And if you have NO IDEA who this hotness is I speak of just check out this video HERE---ohhhhh love him, love him! So when I went to the football game I made a sign to hold up to Alexa while she was cheering telling her I got front row tickets (cuz she loves him too)—she about FELL OVER on the field, hee hee! Oh I cannot wait---this might call for a shopping trip for a “special” outfit!! Ok on to crafty bizness now, LOL!
This card is for those “Just Because” occasions that we all have now & then for a friend or a relative. This card I made using some fabulous new My Minds Eye papers—I adore this Lost & Found line and this set has my fave combo of red & black! And I paired it with this super cute Magnolia stamp from Magnolia-licious called “Tilda with Ponytail” from the Sweet Rainbow collection. I LOVE this Tilda because I think she is so versatile---you can use her for every season & just about every occasion--a great one to have in your collection! Have you seen all the new stamps in both large & mini form over at Magnolia-licious, check them all out!!
I distressed all my edges with my Zutter Distress tool and then inked them with brown ink. The black border was done with a MS border punch, black pearls and a button tied with Scrappers floss. The black circle was embossed with a CB emboss folder---circles done with my Spellbinders dies.
Yes she is colored with Copics—R29,R24,R22,R20 / E11,E00 / E43,E42,E40 / E49,E37,YR 20. COPIC TIP: To darken up those red colors add W5 over the top until you achieve the depth of color you want, then go back over it with your dark red to cover it. This is a great way to get a deeper red for coloring. I added Stickles to her shirt and socks for some pretty bling.
That’s all for me today! I will see you back here on Friday with a NEW RELEASE from Sylvia Zet for SCACD So make sure to check back!!
