Happy Thursday everyone!
Sorry I am posting so late today. Jason and I went out for date night last night and didn't get home until really late so I decided to sleep in! Luckily, Izzy had such a good time playing with Lainy and Aunt Tracy that she was super tired too so we both had a very nice morning of relaxing and having fun!!
So, like I said, Jason and I had the best date night last night. We went out to a local Brew House for dinner. It is casual dining but nice. The building is actually a historic Mill with a functioning water wheel so it is really cool. Then we went to the movies. Jason and I never go to the movies so it was a nice surprise. We saw the new Jennifer Aniston movie He's Just Not That Into You. It was actually really good and even Jason liked it! It was a really good mixture of funny and serious. So all in all it as a really wonderful night!
Well, I only have one project to share today what with all the babysitting yesterday and then date night, I didn't get hardly any stamping time! Not that I am complaining. It was such a fun day. Anywhoo, my card for today is for the challenge that Marie issued over at The Greeting Farm Blog! Guess what, guess what!!!! It is a sketch!!! Yesssssss!!! so of course you know that I am going to participate if it is a sketch. And here it is!
Don't you love this!!! I adore how the main panel is turned at an angel and for some reason it said masculine card to me. No idea why. Maybe because of all the straight lines or something. Well to be honest, masculine cards are kind of difficult for me, so I am extra proud of the way this one turned out! I started this card by stamping Hello Ian by The Greeting Farm on white card stock and colored him in using my copics and my gold pen. I added a brad to his hat to simulate a button. I then cut him out and mounted him on brown and green card stock. I next layered on kraft, brown and green card stocks and DP from Basic Grey's Granola. I stamped the sunflower from All Wrapped Up by SU! in so saffron and close to cocoa and then stamped the sentiment from All Around Argyle by SU! in black on top and cut it out along with a piece of green using my nesties. I distressed both the sentiment and image using a sponge and some close to cocoa ink. To finish the card off, I added three green brads down the side and a brown ribbon at the bottom. So, so much fun! Oh and now my good friend Jessica has uploaded a new challenge over at Club Anya! I can hardly wait to play.
Today I wanted to share with you two wonderful RAKs I received from some really great friends. The first is a card I received from my wonderful friend Jacquie! She is so awesome and an amazing talent, I mean just look at the this card! And how sweet is she that she also sent me some of these wonderful sentiments!
The next RAK is from my good friend Danni! She colors so beautifully and I adore the way she decorates the inside of her cards! Oh and she was so sweet to give me some adorable images to color! What a lucky girl I am!!!
Now it is time for my Izzy story. As I mentioned earlier, I babysat Izzy's friend Melaina yesterday. I really think the girls are getting more and more comfortable with each other. They played together and made little art projects. They even fed each. It was so, so cute!!! So here is a picture of them crafting together!
Thanks as always for stopping by! Don't forget the contest over at Pink Cat and the new Challenge at Club Anya and at The Greeting Farm! Lots of Smiles!
