Friend to Friend, Teeny Tiny Wishes

I am now at a place where if I don't participate in a sketch challenge I feel like something is missing.  Picking out the paper and color is now my only obstacle.  I want to use some colors that I haven't been using lately, so I look at my stash and pick whatever cardstock has the most of my supply.

The Mosaic Madness stamp set is one that I have the most trouble trying to figure out how to use it.  I also felt the closest  paper that matches the set is the Quatrefancy Specialty designer series paper.  It came out okay… like I always say, practice makes perfect.

Mojo311SketchMy card sketch is brought by none other than Mojo Monday #311.  If you don't participate, give them a try… they have weekly sketches to sharpen your skill. =)

The Golden “M”

This is my second monogramed card I’ve made so far… you can see the first one here, only difference with this one… is that this one is for me!  LoL… I make cards as I need them and sometimes things happen that prevent me from making a personalized card on the spot.  So having a set of monogramed cards will help me during those times.

CAS-ology Week 54 - Gold

The card was also inspired by the CAS-ology Cue Card challenge and their only suggestion was “gold”.  So, I broke out with my gold embossing powder and champagne glimmer paper which is more gold than anything else.

For news on my side of the world is at a stalemate.  The weather has been too hot to handle to be outside for long periods of time.  I call it lung hot weather.  The warmth of the air actually makes one feel like your lungs are sweating on the inside with each breath.  LoL.

I tend to stay indoors and running outside is for truly dedicated runners who think 100+ degrees is all a mind set.  I’d rather stay inside a cool room and read, make cards, or watch movies.

I did venture out on my day off today, and I lasted about 1.5 hours in the shade.  I was brave enough to walk to the Pizza Hut that is inside of a trailer (kind of like a semi truck hauler) and sat on the patio outside the watering hole called Pete’s.

There is even a Burger King on base, but since the only hamburgers I eat are from Five Guys or In-n-Out, I’m afraid to try them here… LoL.

Don’t forget to stay tuned for your chance to win a Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine!!!
