Thanks a Melon!

Thanks a Melon!

I WANT SUMMER!  Heck, I’m not even asking for too much, it doesn’t even have to be SUMMER…could I at least see the SUN?!

*breathes* Hooookay, so who’s tired of me doing that cloud thing?! *raises hand* Don’t be shy! *LOL*  It’s just SO easy to do it, I can’t stop!  It’s an addiction.  I know…I have a problem.  I promise, the next one will look somewhat different!

This is one of stamps from my High Hopes order.   This little girl is sooo sweet! I thought it was hilarious that she was eating something bigger than her head – it reminded me of ME!

I coloured her in with my Copic Markers and layered her on to CM cardstock.  I drew the randomly flying ‘birds’ onto the cloud scene with my Copic Multiliner and added Stickles for nice, fluffy cotton candy looking clouds!  I also decorated a bit with my new Liquid Pearls but we’ll be getting more into those within the next couple of weeks with the April Spotlight.

Speaking of the APRIL SPOTLIGHT, the switch-up tutorial is now up for your perusal.  It’s using the same technique as the first tutorial, but on different cardstock, just to show how versatile these pearl powders are and how different mediums and paper can change the way that they look and the brightness of how they appear.  Hope you’ll find some time to check back in tomorrow, we’ll be MISTING away!

You’ve got mail…

Posted by Catherine on April 6, 2009

…although I wasn’t a big fan of it à la Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan, I sure like the REAL thing!

Good mail day?

Mail Delivery

Mail Delivery

YEAH, I’D SAY!!! w00t!

Can you BELIEVE that these sat in the mail box for two days before I even found them! *GASP* I know!  Fridays are always a bit funny with Bart off for the day since he works 4 twelves instead of regular shifts.  So this past Friday I didn’t run to the mailbox like I normally do since I know that he’s been home.  For some reason he thought that I checked for the mail, so when neither of us brought anything in, we both just assumed we didn’t have any.  Oh good grief!

Anywho, Bart decided to check for some weekend fliers yesterday and he foooound my goodies!

I don’t have a project for you today, as this weekend was pretty busy for me with no quality time in my scraproom.  I was able to pack up most of my scraproom stuff and haul it over to the all-day scrap retreat, but unfortunately, unlike previous years, I found this one to be kind of…*wrinkles nose* I don’t know…I didn’t get much done!  I’m thinking I didn’t get as much done as I would have had I just stayed home.  Aaaah well, quality time with my mom and my aunt sure made up for it.  Plus I won a door prize which was a pack of cardstock worth $45!  Which was EXCELLENT since I came in there thinking that if I was going to be buying something, it would be cardstock! YAY!  I also came out of there with my friend’s bridal shower gift in two weeks!

When I got home, hubby and I unloaded the truck (well, more hubby than me this time because I practically gave myself a back injury trying to get everything into the truck!) and we pretty much dropped everything inside the door and took off for a wonderful dinner and a movie double date!  A steak and crème brulée later, we were seated in our awesome seats and settled in ready to enjoy Fast and Furious 4 (which was AWESOME) how much do I want to trick out my little Honda  right now and jack an ice cream truck? HAHAHA!

Yesterday, the BFF and I took off for the motorcycle show.  I tried to convince her to leave a little earlier so that we could visit Stamping Bella, but she wasn’t having none of that! *LOL* She’s already promised to come to the craft convention that’s going on in three weeks, so today was her day!  I did end up having a great time and I found my wonderful scooter that I will TOTALLY own one day! I *want* it!  After, I went to food heaven at a Korean BBQ place.  Excellent weekend, but I really missed my Chewy and our quality time in the scraproom.  Back at it and in full force tomorrow…

APRIL SPOTLIGHT

In the meantime, I’m not TOTALLY empty craft-handed!  Today is the FIRST week of the APRIL SPOTLIGHT!  I didn’t forget!  Marti’s got the low-down on some product comparisons on her blog if you didn’t get a chance to check it out!  I’ve got the first of the technically increasing tutorials up in the APRIL SPOTLIGHT section.  So if you’ve got a couple minutes and have been curious about PERFECT PEARLS, please do stop by and have a read through!

That’s it for me today folks, thanks so much for stopping by *HUGS*

Here’s a couple pictures from yesterday’s adventures!
