One week

...since I last blogged.
And what a week.
SO much stuff going on, it's ridonkulous! Good news is that today I get to be home for more than eight hours (which I usually spend sleeping) and I've got something to share.

Firstly, I want to thank you all for the sweet comments on my last post - you all make me blush with your kind, supportive words!

So here's my thank you. :)

I've never been so pleased with a one layer card I made (but then again, I think this is the first one ;))

Some additional coloring with colored pencils - I've seen lots of people with this stamp set doing this, so of course I had to try too. ;) Ooo, and there's also some subtle wet embossing going on as well...

I'm linking this up with Catered Crop - a new to me challenge blog. Just wanted to play along and give a shout out to their sponsor, Lilly Belle's. I've ordered twice from Laura, and she has been AWESOME. Got everything I wanted, at a reasonable shipping price, and with a coupon! Part I love most is that I was able to order everything from one place and only have to pay one (reasonable) shipping price!

Well, I'm off to spend my last few precious free hours with my family! Thanks for stopping in and God bless!

Cardstock: LSS
Stamps: PTI 'Rosie Posie' and MFT
Ink: Ranger, Versamark
Other: embossing powder (Martha Stewart), coloring pencils (Prismacolor)

Tools: trimmer, adhesive, scissors, heat gun
