Awesome Takes Practice

 Happy Wednesday! I am back for with another card before we head back to Cincinnati to help with Tom's Dad. The image I am using is the progressive image for this month's challenge at The Outlawz challenge blog.

The image is from Moon Flower Digital Stamps called Lust. I colored the image with Spectrum Noir markers and die cut it with Spell Binder's Classic Scalloped Rectangles Large dies. I used Star Dust Stickles to accent the roses and petals. The sentiment I found in my files from Mudmaven Designs. I really thought it fit the image well. I used Gina Marie Designs Diamonds dies for the sentiment and then trimmed it down. The inked edges for the image and sentiment were Distress Oxide Salty Ocean and Broken China. The sentiment is popped up with foam tape. I am entering these challenges:
Since we've been home for the last few weeks we've been spending time time with the twins and working on things for the new house. It's been a busy time. We've now signed a contract with the builder and he's working to get a building permit and then we can get started. Monday the surveyor was out and staked the house out. We had to make some changes to fit into the space but we are happy with it. Tomorrow the excavator  company is coming out to look at the property. Since we had two inches of rain in the last 2 days it's way to wet to get started but they'll be ready to go when it dries out and we have our permits. We are making progress! So I'll leave you with pictures of the twins from this last weekend. 

Thanks for stopping by. We'll be heading back to Cincinnati soon. So I'll see you when I get a chance to craft again. Take care! Peace and all good things to you!

I'm a Little Behind!

 Haha! How prophetic (or pathetic) are those words? Not much time to craft these days. Today, out of necessity, I desperately needed a belated birthday card for a dear friend. Here's what I came up with.

For the image I used Forest Friends #3 from Inky Antics colored with Spectrum Noir markers and die cut with Stitched Circles from MFT. The background was done with Mowed Lawn and Salty Ocean Distress Ink. The two background papers were from my stash.  The lighter brown color was die cut with MFT Stitched Squares. The sentiment was computer-generated. Everything on a dark brown card stock base. The inside of the card reads: "No "butts" about it... you're great! (from Inky Antics)  Happy Birthday  Sorry I'm late, hope it was GREAT! "(retired Gina K set). 
I am entering these challenges:
So, we are still going to and from Cincinnati to help with Tom's Dad. We'll be returning sometime this week. He's getting better physically but he still needs someone with him most of the time. We are getting closer to starting the new house. We hope that the first part of this next week, the surveyor will be stacking out the house and if the weather gets better we can get started. It's been crazy busy. Last Wednesday I spent the day picking up bricks from existing sidewalks. We don't want the brick in the dirt when the foundation is dug. Lots more to do there. Hope you are all well. Please pray for peace in our world. Peace and all good thing to you.
