Did you notice that I spruced the place up a bit?? I cruise around so many blogs each morning while drinking my coffee and felt like mine needed a face lift. Not to mention, I was getting bored with the same ole blog day after day.
Feels like it has been forever since I actually posted a card but believe me, I have been hard at work. I am trying to build up enough cards to sale them at the upcoming Fall Festival. My hopes are to make enough profits that I can give a small donation to the Family Readiness Group at our command.
I could go on and on but I'll spare you and move on to this yummy card. I have been having so much fun mixing and matching coordinating papers. This one really makes me think deserts. What a shame that SU retired this stamp set. Not sure when it was retired but it is still one of my favorites. I used water color pencils but was not brave enough to add water. Apparently I am just not very good with the whole blending or water coloring thing. Lately I have been messing everything up and that can be SOOOOO frustrating.
I snapped a few photos of my "WorkShop" so come back tomorrow to see how creative I have become in my tiny little space. I think we should invite Nichole Heady (owner of Papertrey Inc.) over to see my "WorkShop". Her husband built her a state of the art amazing place AND she has a NEW one being built.............. She would be so jealous of MINE. (wink ;o)
