Pretty excited how they turned out. I even made the little felt envelope with a die from The Cat's Pajamas. Woot, woot!
Here is the envelope closed with the earrings inside...
How great is that? Turned out to be the perfect size. YEAH!
Tomorrow I plan on stamping & getting caught up on some cards (or at least I hope to). My shoulder has been giving me some trouble so I don't know how productive I will be. This is the reason for my absence over the last week. :(
Anywho, hope to see you all tomorrow. Enjoy the earrings!
We only have sitting room for 5 between the couch & 2 chairs in the living room. Since we have 4 dogs & there are 2 of us, some dogs need to buddy up...
tight sleeping spaces! LOL
I just had to share. And yes, the leather chair is a complete disaster because we let our dogs get on our furniture. I am okay with that. They are happy, we are happy, that is all that matters. Right? RIGHT!
I had big plans to come home & get some stuff done but the minute I walked in the house? Exhausted. What's up with that? I was soooo looking forward to getting my weekend started. I had a take charge attitude & now? Now I feel like crawling in bed with my sweet little puppy & snoozing. Heck, if I go to bed now maybe I can get to sleep before Robert comes to bed & then I won't have to listen to his snoring!!! LOL
That's it, I'm gonna succumb to the sleepiness. I will catch up with all of you later.
As much as I like this card, I now realize, it could have been so much better. If only I had made it AFTER my Copic classes! My shading & coloring would have been better, there would have been more contrast...I could go on... but as Sherrie said..."we learn from our mistakes." Why yes, yes we do. :)
Maybe I will have to perform another card overhaul & use this card as my base project???? Hmmm...
In other news, it's Thursday so you know what that means, right? TOMORROW IS FRIDAY!!! I am looking forward to the weekend and getting some stamping done. Or at least getting something crafty done.
Sometimes just saying DUDE says it all. I desperately need some guy birthday cards. Was this easy or what? I let the DP do all the work for me.
Shoot, I even did a little embossing. Hard to believe I remember how to do that! LOLOLOL
I honestly think this card took me less than 10 minutes to make. What took so long was "finding" my embossing gun & clear embossing powder. C'mon, don't tell me you don't know what that is like. I know you are a hoarder just like me & have to search through drawers to find "stuff." LOL
Okay, I am going to sneak off & finish a challenge card that I have half way finished. I will see you all later!
thinking how tired I am. Robert already took off for bed & I am still sitting in the living room. What's up with that? And how did it get past 8pm already? Sheesh. I walk in the door, eat a little dinner & then it's time to hit the sack. Anyone else experience that? Rapid passing of time? Or is it just my age? LOL
This is random but is anyone out there addicted to "The Blacklist" as I am? I am obsessed. OBSESSED. James Spader is FANTASTIC in this show. LOVE IT! If you haven't watched it yet...YOU NEED TO!!
I have a little obsession with Wonder Woman. I don't know what it is or how it started. I actually think my Sister got me started on it & it had to do with work. Any who, I think about WW all the time & often wonder what she would do in certain situations. LOL
This is what I think WW looks like on a Sunday morning...
Appropriate, don't you think? Everyone should be lazy on Sunday. Well, except for me. I had to clean "the beast" which hadn't been cleaned all week. EEK!
I have been L-A-Z-Y this past week. So has everyone else in this house. The weather has been perfect, my hubby has been wonderful & loving, the pups have been happy...sigh... I couldn't have asked for a better stay-cation. Get this...we didn't do ANYTHING. Nope, hardly left the house. Sometimes it's nice to enjoy what you have. :)
I am liking this version sooooo much better than the first one I made.
The "after" version looks more balanced. I look at the "before" card & wonder what the heck I was thinking??? I can't even believe I thought that was an acceptable card. BLAH!!! Definitely happier with the new version.
I am bummed. My stay-cation is coming to an end. BOOO!!!! The pups aren't happy either. They love hanging out with us all day, see...
Who wouldn't want these 3 as stamping companions?? Only thing bad about them when they are like this...trying not to trip over them. LOL
Well folks, I need to clean the house & then I am going to get back to stamping. I still have a TON of cards I want to make before this vacay is over. Wants, needs...maybe I should just take care of my wants??? Mmmm, maybe...
I love this Chicken strummin' his guitar. Leave it to Anna Wight to come up with such a fantastic image. Who wouldn't swoon over this guy serenading them? I mean, seriously!
I am working feverishly trying to get some birthday cards made. I need to stock up. Birthdays are coming & going way too fast for me. LOL
I am also doing the big "purge." That's right, cleaning out the ole stamp room & getting rid of "stuff." Stamps, paper, punches, you name it. It's all going on Craigslist this weekend. Will provide a link to my listing if anyone is interested.
Question for you all...I primarily use my Copics for coloring. I am thinking of getting rid of my regular markers & pigment pads with the exception of a few colors. What do you think? Think I will regret getting rid of them? I never use them anymore. I would rather invest in the Copic refills than replacing my old markers. Decisions, decisions. I am going to sleep on it tonight. Let me know what you think though.
I've had this card running through my head for a couple of weeks now & just got around to making it. I still think I could do more with it but, then again, I like how simple it turned out. Since I didn't have the perfect stamp for my saying, I had to print it from my computer. It's unfortunate that there isn't a stamp company out there that has my same wicked humor. LOL
I need to get moving, I am making salmon for dinner tonight & need to get that started. The pups are chomping at the bit for their dinner too.
