This is my place to share with family and friends. You might find handmade cards, digital scrapbook pages, photos or a little chatter because those are the things I love. My blog is a work in progress, so be patient with me. Most of the time I think I will be talking to myself, but hey, I'm used to that!

Sorry, it's been a while...

since I posted. We have been back from vacation since last Friday. This whole week was spent taking down drapes, putting things out of the way and moving furniture. Friday we had all the windows in our house replaced. All twenty of them, and an 8 foot sliding door. Then today, DH decided to paint my craft room. I had picked out the color a couple of weeks ago, sort of a light "Mellow Moss". Very restful, hope I don't fall asleep in there! It looks really nice with the white trim on the new window and door. When it is all finished, I will post some pictures. I mentioned to DH that some crown moulding (or molding, I looked it up) would look nice. Lol, maybe then I could call it my "Stamping Studio"
Here is a card I made using the "Black Magic" technique. I need some more practice on this one.I had the worst time photographing this card. It looks much better IRL. I think the black paper causes the glare. I included a close-up of of my second try with the flowers to show the technique. I am going to teach this on Monday to my "Grace Stampers". Thanks for looking!

Supplies: Stamps-Kind and Caring Thoughts, White Craft Ink, Water Color Pencils, White gel marker, Whisper White and Basic Black card stock, all from Stampin'Up!.

Beautiful card Cathy! I see you are still at it! I like the idea of adding crown moulding and calling it a studio...funny... Sounds beautiful!

Beautiful card. I love it! I always have a problem with getting a glare when photographing black cardstock also. Very frustrating.
