Well it’s been a little while since I’ve done a post. I might be a little out of practice… But I had a snow day afternoon on Friday, my order from MFT was on my doorstep, and it seemed like the perfect time to get crafty. So I started with one of my favorite challenges, the Color Throwdown.
(P.S. I also switched over to a new domain, and I got my old posts switched over, but I have some work to do on the image links.)

Well, it feels like forever since I’ve done this. Let’s see if I can remember how to do it! Thank goodness for my crafty friends. Our monthly get-togethers have kept me crafting at least once a month even though moving and setting up my new craft room has taken months longer that I wanted. But it’s getting closer! One more big piece of furniture to move, but it’s a beast!
I’m playing along with the MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge with this card. I may not have a fully assembled craft room, but I couldn’t resist trying out the Distress Oxide inks for the first time when I was creating my cloud background. First impression: So easy to work with! FOr the post the seagull is standing on, I masked the gull and the edges and stamped the post with the Wood Plank background stamp with Hot Fudge hybrid ink then finished cloring it in with Copic markers.

I actually only made two cards last weekend. Most of my time was well spent working on another project for a friend that I can’t share right now (because it’s not actually finished yet, among other reasons…). But for my second card, I used the current sketch from the MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge.

Oh, it’s been too long since I’ve been able to get crafty! (Craft Room Status: Still Not Finished…) But this weekend I was fortunate to spend the weekend with a group of my best crafty friends. That is so good for my soul. And after a rough week, I was reminded of how lucky I am to have all the wonderful people in my life that I do.
Aaaanyway, enough of the sappy stuff… 😉
