Well--it took me a week, but I finally pulled out my Cuttlebug and put it to work. I was shocked at how easy it was---I used the Stylized Flowers Embossing Folder and put a piece of scrap paper in it---literally just one that was sitting on my desk and voila, I had a lovely piece of embossed paper that looked like I had spent the morning embossing.
I was so excited I had to take a picture of it---it's kraft paper (SU!) and it's really nothing exciting, but I was THRILLED!! (I'm easily amused!) I put together a card for Beate's Weekend Sketch Challenge with it---you know I HAD to use it---just to say it was my "first"!!
The sketch this week was simple and provided so many opportunities---I'm still trying to color with my watercolor paper and SU ink---my aquapainter just gets water EVERYWHERE---is it supposed to do that? I just don't know. I need to ask someone. It frustrates me, so I finally trashed the first one and just used my blender pen---the "heart" in the picture has WAY too much ink, but I just finally left it--again, I'm still learning....this does make me re-think the idea of buying Copic markers---what if I can't make them work either? Enough blah, blah, blah---
Here's the card--- It's just a 5.5 x 4.25 card--nothing special--the recipe is below. David is at a conference this weekend and then he is headed to see his Mom. She isn't well. Please pray that it will be a sweet visit....too long of a story to share here. I have nothing special planned, so I'm hoping to get a lot of stamping done....but that always seems to change once the kids are home! Enjoy your weekend. I hope to be back with some other Cuttlebug Cuties!
Have a blessed day~
