A Little Break!



Hello there! Yes, I'm finally taking a bit of a break from my chores to sit down and post a new card. I didn't get much crafting done this past week because I was really tired every night when I got home from work. I'm still recovering from my little surgery and another problem that cropped up requiring me to take two antibiotics... which I finished today. I'm sure I'll be back to my old self again soon.

I actually made this card a couple of weeks ago for my friend Susan. Her SCS name is coffeeforme. I know she likes coffee... but ONLY after she has taken a shower and gotten dressed for the day (me, I have to have coffee before I can do anything), which I discovered when we roomed together at a CKU. And we both love our Starbucks, that's for sure!

This Hanna image is so large, I really didn't have room for much else. I stamped her, the table and other images with Brilliance Graphite Black ink and then colored everything with my Copic markers. (I will start taking pictures of my markers for future cards, but for now they are listed below.) The tabs are the SU small oval punch folded in half over the edge, and finished off with a Dew Drop. I just realized one of the tabs popped up in this picture... sorry about that! Anyway, the tabs were added because I accidentally made a stray black mark on the card when stamping the main images and I needed to cover it up rather than start all over again. I hate stray marks! But I will say that many's the time I've liked what I did to cover up a mistake, and this is no exception!

Recipe:

Paper: Basic Grey Two Scoops, Papertrey Ink Sweet Blush and White cardstock

Stamps: Hanna

Ink: Brilliance Graphite Black, Copic Markers R32, RV42, YG03, B21, C1, E25, E00, YR31, B34, To

Accessories: Dew Drops, SU Small Oval Punch

The purge of my craft room continues. Thanks to all who have purchased my stamps on eBay. I'm really glad that they will get new life and attention in someone else's hands. Today I put the ones that didn't sell last week back up for sale with all fixed prices (Buy It Now) and an offer to Buy One Get One Half Off. I'll add some more "new" items tomorrow, so please be sure to check out my listings.

I'll be back tomorrow with something new to share! Thanks for stopping by.

Thanks for the beautiful card Lisa. Coffeeforme and my little creamer (Lauren) are off to Hawaii in 48 hours and can't wait. Thanks again for your well wishes.
