My new Lightbox
Thanks to my new online friend Lisa I knew how to put together a sturdy lightbox with the clear plastic container, clip on lights, posterboard, and interfacing. Thanks Lisa! What do you think of my picture? Is it any clearer than the rest?
I know I have been missing in action but I had to go buy yet another camera battery. In the mean time I have about 6-7 different cards to show you. (just one today!)
Today's card uses some decorative paper that I had bought from StampinUp that I HATED. Really hated. It was nothing like the picture in the book. BUT I felt that I needed to not let it go to waste so I pulled it out and started playing with it. I used my new Spellbinder's Nestability set for the frame and the shape for my image. Isn't she cute? I like that, cute and vintage all at the same time. Of course I colored her with my Copic Markers. After some sewing on my paper and some Flower Soft for my flowers as well as Stickles for her wings I was set to go. Now to pull out some embellishments. Awhile back I had dyed some seam binding this pretty dark pink color and thought it would make a nice bow especially with the pearl in the center. Then I started playing with the flowers from Wild Orchard crafts. I used the same Stickles on the largest rose. I love the way it adds something special and ties the card together. Add some swirls that I cut out using a Sizzics (sp?) die and I was done.
Today is my son Sam's 23rd birthday. Sam still lives with us why he is getting on his feet. We took him out to lunch and the guys did a little gambling at the Casino. Stinks, I wanted to play, too! We just finished with cake and singing (badly lol) Happy Birthday....I really can't sing! Tonight we are hanging around the house with some beers and watching the ballgame. Right up their alley!
Hey! I lost 3.5 pounds this week. Yippie Skippie! Love, Elle
