I wanted to break out my Tim Holtz distress markers.
I haven't really had a chance to really play with them.
So for this card I wanted to use them :)
First thing I did was to actually ink up this stamp with the markers.
I just coloured the stamp pinks for the flowers and green for the stems/branch.
Then huffed on the stamp to reactivate the the ink, then stamped.
This stamp is an outline stamp so the flowers and stem/branch needed to be coloured in.
So I took 2 colours of pink, light for the flowers and a darker pink for the shading, then just coloured them in :)
Did the same for the branches, except with greens of course.
Then I formed some flowers I punched out and added some sparkle to them :)
Here is the inside of the card.
Does this look familiar?
It is the journal stamp I was playing with last week :)
Last night I was having a little sweet craving.
So I made Impossible Pie.
Not only is this so good, it is also so easy to make ;)
Here is the recipe Impossible Pie.
Onto My Day:
Another at home day for me.
It was my week to car pool the kids to school, but my friend Lynne said she would do it this week.
At first I thought how sweet, she knows I'm not feeling well.
Nope. She doesn't want her kids to get my cold, lol. Nothing like a truthful friend, lol.
My friend Debbie phoned to chat and was looking up the cottages for our girls getaway for this summer.
Can you believe the ones we usually like are all booked up!!!
We seriously have to quit telling everyone about this place, lol.
There is one cottage left with a hot tub that has an opening for the week we want.
So hopefully it is still available when I phone tomorrow.
So Wayne and I are watching the Finale of the Biggest Loser.
Is it awful that I am eating a Chocolate Cluster as we are watching it.
I don't think I'm grasping the whole concept of the show, lol.
I hope you all had a creative Monday :)
