So sorry I am posting so late! Everything is finally starting to catch up with me! Yikes! Luckily Tracy is coming over tonight to help and Jason is supposed to go to the store tomorrow, so hopefully that will take some of the stress off! LOL!
Quick Izzy story and then a quick post! So today since I have been trying to get stuff done in the house, I opened up the back door and just let her roam in the back yard. Every once in awhile I will hear her crying and it is usually because her toy got stuck or Tuxy looked at her funny or something like that. Well today she has been relatively content and I haven't heard much from her at all! It was getting towards nap time and I was about to go get her and bring her in, when I heard her crying. I figured it was just like the other times so didn't rush to go get her. When I walked out though and spotted her, I found her half between the rungs of the railing that goes around the pool deck! LOL! It is at ground level and the pool is covered so there are no worries there, but she was scared because she couldn't figure out how to go forward or backwards! I mean I did feel bad for her and all (she wasn't hurt), but come on, what in the world was she doing? All I can figure out was that she was following Tuxy since that is where he goes through the railing at all the time! LOL!!!
Since it is Wednesday that means it is another installment of Wathchadoin' Wednesday over at Storage Units, Ink and More!! This week we have a really fun challenge for you! We want you to create an April Fool's card!
Create a card that fits the holiday... It could be a joke, a prank, or just plain old silly.
Another option would be to use a stamp in a uncommon way. April fools you thought
this stamp was for blank but you can also do this with it.
Alright onto my April Fools creation!! Boy did this take me way longer than I thought it would! LOL! I got the idea for this card after scanning through this week's challenges over at SCS. The Try a New Technique challenge was to create a never ending card! I immediately thought that would be so cool for an April Fool's card. You would think you were finally at the front but there was always another layer! So here is mine!
This is so much fun to play with! I just keep flipping it over and over and over! LOL! I started this card by following the instructions found here. I found the video to be a lot easier to follow than the pictures but there is both! I used yellow card stock for my card base and then layered on brown card stock and three pieces of DP from Hobby lobby! I added lots of faux stitching to all the layers to give it some interest. For my little scenes, I stamped several of the images from the new stamp set Rain, Rain, Go Away set from Storage Units Inks and More on white card stock. This set along with two other is available for purchase now!!! I colored them all of up with copics and layered them on brown, yellow and blue card stock. To complete my card, I cut out some blue rain drops, added lots more faux stitching and glued on some big buttons! I hope my prank receivee doesn't get to discouraged! LOL!
We would love you to play along this week in our challenge. Simply type the keyword SUINKWWC34 when uploading to SCS or PCP. Now check out the rest of the DT's creations.
As I stated above, the new SUINK sets are available for purchase starting today. And in other release news, the new Grad Anya and Grad Ian digital images from The Greeting Farm are now available for purchase as well! Thanks everyone for visiting me today! Smiles!
