A Memorable Day

I just wanted to say that this has been a really special day what with the 44th President of the US being sworn in. I was lucky enough to get back home from picking the girls up in time to see the big event on TV. I had tears in my eyes thinking about what a great moment in history this is. Anyway now I'm waiting for Sam and Logan to get here and watching all the inaugeral festivities. So here are some cards I've made in the past few weeks. I have a lot of other things to share but I don't think I have time right now. I'll just do a little now and later when I know I can spend more time I'll post some Layouts.
One sketch and one paper line, four different cards. These cards I did last week for one of the Serindipity Scrapbooks Winter Sketchfest Challenge. I love it when Serindipity does their sketchfests or special crops. They always have the best sketches and challenges. You should check them out sometime. There is a link in my sidebar. I used my new Basic Grey Bittersweet Paper for these.

This is a new stamp set that I bought the other day. Inkadinkado Birds. This was for a technique Challenge on PCP or Splitcoast, I don't remember now. Anyway the Technique was to use emboss resist. I stamped the 3 birds onto white card stock as well as sand and embossed all with clear embossing powder and then I used the smooshing ink onto freezer paper, spray with water and pick up color technique. I did a little bit on the birds and then covered the birds body with embossing and then I did more inking. I also used my new embossing folder for the brown background. Diva Monster and Joe Monster are in Love.All the hearts are foam hearts that I picked up in the dollar bin at Target as well as the printed papers. Gotta love that.

I used some paper from SU that is retired but you can still get the rub ons and the stamp set in the new catalog. That background paper is some of my hand made paper.

New Su Rasberry Tart paper and a 2 step stamp set that is in the Sell-A-Bration. catalog for next month.

I hope everyone has a great week. I'm pretty sure i will.

So anyway go to her blog for all the information on how you can win some blog candy too. I have been working on a bunch of stuff so I will set down this weekend and do a post. Have a good weekend and check back soon.

New Bling

Just wanted to point out the new Blinkie over there on the left for Queen Kat Stamps. You have seen some of my Monsters and a Robot stamp or two of theirs that I have used. I love the designs and can't wait to get some new ones. They are having a release party today over on their blog and giving away some BLOG CANDY, so check it out. Great group of gals! You can also find them on Paper Craft Planet. I have a Blinkie for that site too and the Serindipity Winter Sketchfest is new too. I will be back later with a few new cards and Layouts to post. I have to go make a couple of cards for the challenges at QK. Have a great afternoon.
