A Great Crafty Day!

After a hard day of crafting, I salvaged ALL the cards that had issues and managed to "fix" them
to the point of feeling good about giving them now.  Here is a picture of them all.

We tried a few new techniques which I need to work on a bit, but in the end, we had a great time!

Here is each card on it's own:
Black Magic Coloring by Gina K is the technique I used here.
Another Gina K tutorial, Embossing Over Water Color

We then moved on to Handmade Botanicals, again by Gina K!
This card is in my previous post, Make It Monday: Score Lines

And to end this lengthy post(for me, anyway):
My Scribbly Bird by Dina Wakley and the realistic looking droplets. This was
my first attempt at this technique so I didn't think it was half bad. Gotta give ALL
the credit to Ryn from Designs by Ryn. The link is for this tutorial so be sure to
check it out, no glossy accents or anything, Love this!!

Ask any questions but for now, I am off to bed after a busy, crafty, happy day!!


Make It Monday #244: Score Lines

I have gotten a bit of my mojo back, yipee! Not that I really lost it but I have not had much time lately to craft. I invited a friend over and we crafted the day away, thank you Laurie for joining me!!

As I was creating, I remembered the MIM over at Papertrey Ink. So I decided to have a go at it.
Laurie shows us some tips with SCORE LINES and has a few ideas that I never thought of myself!

I was feeling quite motivated so I made some of my own woodgrain paper . A great tutorial by Karen   D. and it was so easy to do! Thank you Karen!! This is where the scoring came in quite handy!

                      This is a card I found on pinterest that I lifted, beautifully done! You can find
                                           it here. Gotta give credit where credit is due!
                                                              and here is my card:

I used many different supplies but if anyone has any questions what they might be, please do
not hesitate to ask. I love your comments and questions! And a big shout out to Karen for the 
woodgrain tutorial!!

Papertrey Ink March Blog Hop

I cannot believe Easter is on Sunday!! It amazes me how time goes faster with age. I mean we are already 1/4 of the way through 2016!

Anyway, I finally got a chance to sit this morning and do what I love. I made this card for my sister in mind. She sent me some happy mail a couple weeks ago for no reason at all. What a treat!! I know she won't see this even if I post on Facebook because she does not have an account.

                                             I wanted to partake in the Papertrey Ink Blog Hop
Here is one of the inspiration photos:
