I am a stay-at-home mom. I have been married to my handsome and wonderful husband for over 14 years. Right now he's battling stomach/esophagus cancer. So I do my best to craft when I can. I have two wonderful boys. My oldest, Garett, is 24 and served 5 years in the Navy. He's been home since the beginning of the year (2014). We are very proud of him. My youngest, "DJ", is 13 and in the 8th grade. I have two Border Collie mix dogs (Koda and Rugu), one Calico cat (Hydie), one orange Tabby cat (Bosley), one Tea Cup Chihuahua (Gigi...I LOVE her sooo much), a Chiweinnie (Lily....sweetest dog ever), and a Jack Russell/Chihuahua (Connor....AAALL boy).

World of Possibilities...

FRIDAY?  Again??  Wow!!  Happy Friday.  I hope everyone had an AWESOME Easter (If that is a holiday you celebrate).

My card today was made using Donna Downey's "Create Today" kit.  I have been wanting to get it inked up for a couple of weeks now and this afternoon was the time.

I started out spraying the lower half of watercolour paper with yellow shimmer spray that I made myself.  After that, I placed a half circle tape mask down and sprayed some peach Smooch spray, pink Tattered Angels, a little more yellow, some Denim Blue Tattered Angels and then some light blue homemade shimmer spray.  It's too bad you can't see how shimmery it really is.

Next I removed the tape mask and voila...my sun!

The next technique I did was I misted the grass stamp with water then coloured the stamp with my watercolour pencils using peach, yellow, and brown.  I stamped it twice to cover the page.  Next was the "tree" which I just used black ink for a silhouette look.  I stamped the heart with pink pigment ink and used a pink embossing powder and painted the inside of the heart with the pink Tattered Angels spray.  The sentiment I stamped on vellum with white pigment ink and used white embossing powder...then snipping away very carefully around the words.  I finished the card off with a bit of jute twine and presto...the card is done.

Thanks for looking and have a wonderful day.
