Good evening  Friends,
I'm sending you lots of laughter for tomorrow
I hope you are all rested up for what ever fun activities you have planned for tomorrow.
I 'm still experimenting with  watercolor technique and embossing.  I am also trying to keep it CAS.  The Creative Inspirations black Deliquesce really worked beautifully here. The water color technique was achieved with the Jenni bowlin re- inkers. I accidently squirted the inks and that splattered my card stock, then, I thought that is a happy accident.  I may even do that on purpose next time



Here is a close up of the stamp and the ink so you can see how it looks. The embossing powder gets so shiny.  It is really easy to work with.

Stitch---CAS

CLICK HERE for the winner of the  DL.ART Thankful Thursday #105 challenge ending March 26, 2013  


Hi Friends,

 This seemed appropriate for me today seeing as how this is the day I meet with my knit wit friends. I took a plate of pound cake. I am so glad I did not bring any home. It was a hit, so that is good.
Right now we are knitting 27 hat and scarf sets for 2-5 year old  children in an orphanage in Zambia. The scarves are so small 4"x 36 inches.  We have some nice bright colors.  We have to have these finished by the end of May. 

On to my project:
I am still experimenting with this and I like this one, but I had planned some other items on it but got distracted by the hubby and glued it down, and totally forgot that I was going to punch holes in the images and run twine through them. I think that would have given it a more finished look.  But, it still has a nice CAS look.

Happy Monday Morning Friends,

I always look forward to Mondays. It just starts the week off right.
Earlier I posted a Birthday card for my sister-- I posted it because I haven't sent it yet. Normally I would have everyones B-day cards to them on time. The last couple of years I have been a real slacker
How about you? Are you a slacker, when it comes to getting those cards mailed out on time?


Even though I don't get the cards out I thought I would make a Thinking of you card, after all I am thinking of them even if the card isn't there on time.



This is an experimental CAS card
I used jenni bowlin re-inkers in stick candy, brown sugar and chili powder to get the background image. Then I used Creative Inspiration white deliquesce embossing powder non top with the same stamps.
I love how this came out.  Sorry I am commenting on my own piece, but I really like how it came  out and  also think the colors give it a Southwest look



PTI : Hawaiian shores, stampers select white
Asian fusion

CLICK HERE for the DL.ART Thankful Thursday #105 challenge ending March 26, 2013
CLICK HERE for the DL.ART Thankful Thursday LINKY PARTY challenge ending March 31, 2013




This is the second layout that I made in my workshop



Again these are all MME papers and products.
This class is very fast paced and I am pretty excited to be working on these layouts. What I realized in taking the workshop is that the kits are really a great way to go. Everything matches and you can just place things wherever you want and it looks good.




I am just finishing up my third layout when my cell phone rings and Katie says.  Guess who I ran into?  I'm sitting here with Donna.   I have a half an hour before my next workshop begins, so I pop out of my class and they are right there sitting on the deck in the sun.  Donna ( from popsicle toes) and I give each other a big hug, It was like we knew each other forever and hadn't seen each other in a while.   It is a beautiful day so we sit and enjoy the warmth of the sun and chat  and guess what we talk about?

Right Paper, scrap stuff, etc.


We talk about other things, but hey what happens at the scrapbook expo, stays at the scrapbook expo!!!

(wink)  ;-)
Unless you come back later I will tell you more.


Challenges:
HIMCR:3 patterned papers
Sunday Funday:AG


Have a blessed day, Diana

Hey!

After I met up with Katie, she was kind enough to stand in line with me while I got something to eat from one of the food concessions. I only had a half hour until my next class and that goes quick while you are waiting in line for food.  She had already scored quite a few goodies from the booths.  One of the reasons I took the classes, was so I wouldn't spend too much on stuff, I didn't probably need.  My next class was a layout class with my minds eye products. I made 3 layouts yes 3 layouts.
Do you remember me telling you I took an online layout a day class in February.
I was suppose to complete 28 layouts in 28 days--
What  was I thinking?  Really
I completed one-- I had too many other things going - Like the arrival of my new cameo- 
So I am so excited to show these to you.
Here is the first one I made I will try to find a challenge that it fits.
If you hear of one let me know.




I will post the other two in the next few days.
My minds eye: all products

Challenges:
Creative card crew: masculine
Creative craft challenge: kids
Tuesday Alchemy:AG
Lady Anne :AG
Pause dream enjoy: AG



Have a blessed evening, Diana
