Blog changes

A very short blurb... I've blanked out my blog AGAIN and am in the process of redoing the look.   I like to do that every now and again.  Right now its just simple, white background with some color text etc...  FYI

I know I know... winter is over and so are the holidays BUT I've had this design idea in my head for awhile now and was in the mood to make it.  I think it turned out very cute.  All stamps are *Crafty Secrets*.  I inked the image with white craft ink [SU] and made a winter scene even though the image is really a summer image [the snow banks are really flowers].  I covered these with liquid applique and heated it with my heat gun and walla... it looks like puffy snow.  I love the vintage feel of this card from the color of the cardstock, the monochromatic use of white ink and the lighter shade of green used for the greeting.  I used white flower soft for the house roof and dazzling diamond clear glitter for the light of the silvery moon.  I used my sharpie white marker for the smoke coming from the chimney.  I love this card.

Every noble life...

...leaves its fiber interwoven forever in the work of the world.

Just a quick post to share a card I made with the Stampin Up set called *Farm Life*.  I love rustic, country and vintage images in general and this set met all of those.  I was so excited about how this turned out I wanted to post it right away.  I haven't been blogging much [I do visit fb more so lately] but I am hoping to remedy this SOOOOOON.  I've pretty much failed at my P.A.D. [picture-a-day] project, I've failed at staying focused on my word for the year F.I.T. [yeah not so much YET] soooo I have removed those page tabs until such time as I'm either compliant or caught up.  I have added a tab, however, titled *the little things* and I have a running list of things that I feel grateful for.  I want to fill that list up so I am keeping that tab active.

I stamped the fence using a Crafty Secrets set called *Sweet Kids* I only inked the fence part of the image.  I colored the fence with my Sharpie white pen, the rest of the images were colored in with my Copic markers.  I added creative candy to look like flowers and I used a Mulberry paper to add a touch of fiber and texture and I stamped the sentiment on this mulberry type paper.  I also airbrushed the back very lightly to give it an appearance of a blue sky.

EDITED TO ADD another rendition, this time a holstein!

 I hope everyone is having a very Happy Sunday!
More later
