{ Adventures in masculine }

Sorry for not posting all week. It has been a rough week for me. I have been dealing with a family emergency and it's been a stressful week to say the least. But things are somewhat back to an even playing field...somewhat.

I thought I would share a card I made at the beginning of the month. An online friend of mine and I have decided to do a swap each month to try and get the mojo going. This month I decided since Father's Day was approaching that maybe we should try out a masculine card. I know most of us have a hard time with these. I am okay with a card for a little guy, but an older one sometimes is a little more difficult. I had this die sitting around and had not used it yet. Nancy has this awesome die and I swiped one off her the last calgals night...I think. Anyway, I attached it die to a green background and colored in the negatives with my copics. I loved how this one turned out. Trust me. It looks much better IRL!

Well...I am off to take the girls for haircuts today...we always get them done at the beginning of the summer and then off to get their teacher gifts.

{ Fishy Thank You }

Someone really needs to come up with a list of post titles for me. Mine are really lame!

Yup, me again! Thought I would pop in tonight as I work all day tomorrow and won't make it back online until Sunday or Monday.

I really like how this card turned out. But you know what? This was NOT at all what it originally started as. I was setting out to make a masculine card for a swap I am doing with an online stamping friend of mine. I found this colored image in my big book of images and was planning on making something masculine with it. Well, this is no way near masculine. But, I still like it. Needless to say, I had to make another card. I will be back with that one later and a story to go along with it! Let's just say it involves Evil Rudy(my beagle puppy)!! I also got to use a new nestie set that I bought at our garage sale at Nancy's a few weeks ago.

Thanks for stoppin' by and have a great weekend!

{ Enjoy the Moment }

Hey look! Two posts in the same the same month! I am on a roll!

Yes, another Mandala. Guess I should have taken a closer look at this one before I actually took the photo. Seems my bling has slipped a bit. Oh well. I can't remember, but I think this may have been one that I made at one of the last Calgal gatherings.

Thanks for stoppin' by. I will most likely drop in again on the weekend. I have an interview this week for a new job, so everyone cross your fingers and toes for me!

{ Yes! I am still alive! }

Good evening everyone. Guess what? I actually took some photos of some creations...AND? I actually stamped tonight too! And yes. I really am alive. I have not been feeling like craft blogging for sometime now. I have been blogging, just not here. My book blog has been getting lots of attention! I will try and make an effort to post promises, but I will try!

Here is a creation I made well over a month ago. I had bought this new Fancy Tags set from Nestabilities. I loved it, but when I actually pulled it out to create something? I was at a loss. So I stuck with something fairly simple. I really like how it turned out. I still am not sure whatelse to do with this one. Anyone else made anything with this set? I would love to see your creations and get some ideas.

Well, I am off to read before bed. If you are still with me...thanks! I will try and make it back soon with another creation.
