Hi Friends and Family,
Welcome to another Loves Rubberstamps Challenge Week! This week our theme is Old and New. Here is what I came up with:
Bugaboo - Stella/Gus - Marriage/Commitment/Insanity - old couple/new image
Lawn Fawn - Sweater Weather 6X6 - old season/new paper pad
MFT Die-Namics Circle Stax set 2 - older dies
MFT Die-Namics Stitched Circle Stax -new dies
MFT Die-Namics - First Place Award - old dies
MFT Die-namics - Gerbera Daisy-new dies
Copic Markers - old and new
Best Glue Ever!- older end of my bottle, lol.
I just love these Bugaboo Images and on behalf of the Design Team, I would like to thank them for providing us with adorable images and letting us pick our own out! Yes, we are so spoiled. lol. I started out with the blue card stock, I added a layer of sweater weather 6x6 paper and cut it down to the A1 card size. I cut out the stitched circle with the sweater weather paper and the strip in the middle with the same paper. I printed my image and colored with Copic Markers that complimented the paper colors. I cut out a flagged strip and hand wrote the "Marriage Means Commitment..." I cut out the image after I colored it with the circle stax set two. Then I rummaged through my dies and found the Gerbera Daisy, which is so perfect with this paper and I have never used it! That's like a double win for me, lol. I popped up the daisy with a dimensional. I finished up the inside by printing the sentiment and adding a left over piece of sweater weather.
I hope everyone had a great Christmas or Holiday and I wish you all a very Happy New Year! I have been coughing and coughing for weeks. It's kennel cough and I hope my dogs don't catch it, lol. No it's the lingering crud. Just won't quite go away. I was blessed to be off for quite a few days from work. I did have Jury Duty last Tuesday. I was suppose to call in for Monday and then I was rummaging through some stampy stack and found my jury summons, lol. So I called right away and was told to come in for Tuesday. We sat there all the long day. And I was fortunate to have my Kendall Fire with me. I started reading, "Gone Girl" and I was totally enthralled in this story. I'm almost finished with it. Love this story but I hate it too, lol, it's a good book. So I even though I was sitting in the jury duty room all day, I was not working and it was a day of rest. At 3:00 pm the lady asked everyone from the patio to come in, a Bailif was on the way to pick a panel of 60 people. We all moaned and groaned. Why this late in the day? Then she announced it was actually three of them to pick three panels of 60 and that means 180 out of 183 people there will be called. And then she said, "Psych, just kidding." lol. Whewww.
Then we had a fabulous Christmas and the kids just loved every moment of that day. It's usually like there is some let down after gift opening, but not with my two guys. They just kept the party going all day. We had the best time. If you are on facebook, look me up or friend me. I have pictures posted there.
Do you have a New Year's resolution? Ours is 30 minutes/30 days. Which means I have to exercise for 30 minutes, 30 days in a row. I have all year to try to accomplish that one, lol.
I do hope you will have a chance to join us in our Challenge and I cannot wait to see what you make!
Thanks for looking in on me,
I am participating in the MFT sketch challenge this week.
