Big On Birthdays

This was a fun Club Card we did this month. Pretty simple too! First we used the Pacific Point and Bermuda Bay Watercolor pencils and scribbled onto the Shimmery White cardstock. Took our Aqua Painter and blended the colors. Let that dry, then stamp the Happy Birthday with Black Archival Ink.  The Birthday Candles come from the Window Box Thinlits. There are 3 of the square dies, hearts, dots and candles. It was so easy…

Up In the Sky, Things That Fly

That is the theme for the Stampin’ Up! Only Challenge this week. I saw this technique on Pinterest a while back and couldn’t wait to give it a try. I used the Lift Me Up Bundle and the Sunburst Thinlit, but not how you would normally use it. Can you see the lines from the Thinlit? It didn’t cut the paper, but embossed it.   The Lift Me Up Stamp Set and matching Up and…

I love…

Can I just say this past week has been a rough one for me……My Fibromyalgia went to a whole new level. Think of it as your nerves are in spasm continuously, or like the feeling when your leg goes to sleep, but nothing helps the pain. So my doctor put me on a mild does of Prednisone. Its one of those medications you have a love/hate relationship with. Makes me cranky, snappy, puff up, blah,…
