Hello -- hope everyone is enjoying the beautiful spring temperatures and weather. It's been beautiful here in Middle TN.
I'm on a marathon computer session this afternoon trying to take care of several little odd jobs and thought I'd pop in with a couple of quick posts for challenges I played along with this weekend.
Friday, I took advantage of a fun sale at Michaels and am now the proud owner of a Cuttlebug! I'm trying to emboss everything now and having the most fun. I told my sister (who wants to get up here sooner rather than later to play herself!) that I'm like the mom from "So I Married An Axe Murderer", (one of our old favorites). One of my favorite lines is when she tells Mike Myer's character, Charlie, "I"ve got a juicer. I juice everything now." And she does it with her cute little Scottish accent; I love to quote it. Well now I have a chance --- "I've got an embosser. I emboss everything now."
Here is the fun, colorful inspiration piece from the April muse over at CASE Study:
And my inspired piece using an embossing folder (! SQUEE!) -- (Play it cool, Mandy. the rest of the crafting world has had one for eons. What? Who said that?!)
I adhered different colored cardstock strips to one solid piece and ran it through the Cuttlebug. I stamped my simple sentiment on vellum and added a little bling. Much fun for something so simple!
Thank you for stopping by!
