It's been a busy week here but I managed to get a card done for
thanks to my UFO (UnFinished Object box)
the challenge is hosted by Debbie this week.
I found this piece that I had done using the Embossing Folder Technique.
I rubbed Distress ink on the inside of an embossing folder, spritzed with water
and "stamped" it on a piece of cardstock.
My spritzer bottle and I have a running feud!
It wants to take control and send an over abundance of water to the project.
I was able to salvage a small piece of it that had white snowflakes
instead of watery blue.
A frame that was cast off from another project was the perfect size.
I actually tried to make a shaker card using some acetate from the back of a stamp set.
Nothing would stick to it!
I wonder what that stuff is actually make of?
I gave up on the shakers and stamped a sentiment directly on the image.
I've used this Holiday Snippets set many times and always wanted to
find a card to use this sentiment on.
Here's a close up in case you can't read it on the card.
You can also see the sparkle on the snowflakes.
I thought it needed something else so I winked it with Stella.
However, Stella seems to have lost her sparkle.
So I sprinkled some Dazzling Diamonds on the wet Stella.
I'm hoping there was enough glue in it to hold the glitter.
Otherwise whoever gets this card will have an envelope full of sparkle.
Maybe that's not a bad thing!
The best part of today is celebrating our oldest grandson's graduation from High School.
It seems like yesterday he was a tiny baby.
Now he's a big strappin' young man!
We are so proud of him!
I'm hoping to catch him in his cap and gown later today.
