I had a great first day at work. The 6 hours went pretty fast considering perfume was not selling that much the day before Easter. Everyone was real nice and I will do it again this Fri and Saturday. People need to buy for Mother's Day.
Emily was home for Easter. She left real early this morning to head back. We will have to move her back home for the summer in the next week and 1/2. We'll make one trip down this week, bring back a load and then make the final move back next week.
Nicholas is home on spring break this week. This is the latest we've ever had spring break I think. I hope to get our garden planted this week. Looking forward to having my tomato sandwiches everyday for lunch. I remember when I hated tomatoes - now I love my tomato sandwiches on toasted bread with light mayo. Mmmmmm
I haven't stamped much lately in the last week. Have you heard about "washi" tape? A Muse Studios sells it and even though I haven't tried it yet, I decided to try duct tape and Walmart has designer duct tape for cheap. So I made this card with duct tape cut in strips in the background. What do you think?
Yes, I am now a working girl once again. After raising 2 teenagers and being fortunate enough to stay home with them, I decided its time to go out and find something. It hasn't been easy since I have been filling out job applications online for about 2 months. Angela recommended me for this job and I had my interview today. I will be a perfume model at Belks in Concord. I will be squirting these perfumes on cards and handing them out to people: Guess Seductive, Beyonce Heat, and Beyonce Rush perfume for Women. Nautica for Men. I start this Saturday :). I can't wait!!!
Have you noticed alot of cards have bakers twine on them? I love the stuff but only have a limited supply that I bought of Martha Stewart around the holidays. It was on clearance and I used some on this card for Lesa. She sold her house after being on the market for awhile. I am so happy for her!!!!
http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/resources/tutorials/bargello/ In case you missed this technique yesterday, I made another card for my godchild. Even though her birthday isn't until NOVEMBER, I made her a cute card for her 13th birthday. At least I have it ready! LOL
I'm not sure what company this stamp is from but I think its from High Hopes. It came unmounted and I've had it for many, many years .. back in the days when I didn't mark my stamps what company they were from. The verse is from High Hopes too (I think).
If you are participating in the blog hop, you should've come from Vanessa Buzard 's blog and if not, then you should start from the beginning with Samantha's blog until you come to my blog.
All supplies used in these 3 cards are by A Muse Studio.
#1 - awesome gingham cardstock (bubblegum pink), bubblegum pink buttons, green stitched ribbon, nestabilities scallop circle, Sleepy Sighs stamp set. #2 - grass polka dot cardstock, Sweet Love stamp set, Copic markers, Diamond glitter on heart #3 - white cardstock, Make a Scene stamp set (clouds), Lots of Dots stamp set (sun), Woodland Friends (tree) and verse is by Friends Fur-Ever. Using grass die, I made the grass using grass polka dot cardstock. I masked the tree, clouds and sun and used my airbrushing with my Copics markers to make the sky.
After my blog, you should head on over to Anna Keyes's blog and check out her cute cards!! Thanks for stopping by!!
