Our WLG Challenge card......

For our SCS WLG challenge we were suppose to use a technique on glossy cardstock. I really wanted to do the soot technique. Well, I tried it and though it did work I could not figure out how to get it so it didn't smudge. I tried spraying it with acrylic spray but that didn't work. I actually really liked how it turned out otherwise. So then I decided to try the shaving cream technique. I thought what a good way to get my son involved. So he picked out the colors to use and we headed to the kitchen. We must have used way too much blue because as you can tell in my final card, you can't see any of the other colors (pink and coral). He had so much fun dropping the ink and stirring it up. We both have ink stained fingers this morning! But overall, I think the card came out pretty good and I got to spend a bit of "fun" time with my son!

Blogger 3 Challenge 5

Here is my challenge card for this round. Our challenge was to use two different hearts, a red and a pink color or two different shades of red. You also needed to have some sort of bling.

I used a sizzix texture plate for the embossed hearts then I used a new set of SU! stamps Something new to love and for the bling...I didn't use stickles LOL, I used some red crystals (or whatever they are called!) And I'm not sure where that ribbon is from but it matched so I used it!

Busy busy busy

Well, my classes ended this past Friday and my new ones started...Today! I have been super busy with catching up on SCS swaps and taking finals. I feel like a huge weight has been lifted now that my math class is over. You just don't understand how much anxiety that class brought me. Once I turned in my last quiz yesterday I just felt better. My new classes are Sociology and Writing...sooooo looking forward to these two classes. To be honest, I was looking forward to anything but math!!!!

Enough about me, on to my swaps:

I joined a chocolohics swap and I sent German chocolate wrapped in these wrappers.

More LOTW's! I'm telling you I have about 4 of these swaps right now and I think after they are over, I am doing with LOTW's for a while. I'm going to be floating in letters. But I really liked the way these two turned out yesterday. My "A" for May and "U" for June. Bright and glittery!

Chipboard Albums

I finally have something to share with everyone! I have been working really hard on some chipboard coaster albums for an SCS swap. I finished them up last night! The more I did the better I think I got and the more I just loved them!
