Lawnscaping Challenge #42 - Getting Texty

So, at the last minute I had an idea for the Lawnscaping, Getting Texty challenge. I also was experimenting with my Gelatos. Yes, I finally caved in and got some a few weeks ago with 50% off coupons. I hear embossed the speech bubbles with clear embossing powder and then rubbed my Gelatos all over the front. Then blended them with a baby wipe. They react to water, and a damp baby wipe worked well and kept me pretty clean! I used Versafine black ink for the words. I did heat set it to make sure it would not smear. I then recycled some twine that came in a order I placed and bam! I'm done!

An early start on Xmas cards...

I have started working on my Christmas cards. I don't give out that many, so they are usually one of a kind masterpieces. I decided to work this card into a challenge, the Designer Draft challenge over at Paper Smooches Sparks. I just love the weenie dog on this set and could use it all the time! I am a mom to a weenie dog so what more could you expect. :-)

10 Minute Craft Dash #2

So, I dare to try this challenge again! It's so hard! My brain just doesn't work that fast. My card ratio is 1card : 3hrs lol! Besides the challenge being 10 mins we had to use the color scheme above teals and green. I planned on using this Martha Stewart punch anywhere punch to do the entire background, but it stopped cooperating with me, so I had to deal with it and craft ON!
