Quick Feel Better Note Card

Hey, I’m still here.

Trying to get the MOJO restarted. Ugh, it went to sleep!

Thanksgiving week was really busy, plus my clothes dryer died the week before, and I didn’t get a new machine until last Monday. (I am incomplete without laundry detergent and working laundry machines!) And I slept badly all week.

Cyber Monday was hectic (my husband kept asking me to order items in his shopping carts for him – LOL! I’m serious!), and Tuesday I got bogged down in my in-law paperwork for a bit.

I need to get moving on my own Christmas cards – hopefully I will have something to post in that direction for tomorrow.

If I don’t get sidetracked by the impeachment proceedings. Wherever you stand on the subject, it is HISTORIC.

Supplies:  Stamp – Lawn Fawn, paper – Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin’ Up! Bermuda Bay, Tempting Turquoise (retired), ink – VersaFine Onyx Black, dies – My Favorite Things, embossing powder – Filigree Fine Art Powder clear, twine – Stampin’ Up!.

Blended Floral You’re On My Mind Card

I know I posted this sentiment not too long ago, but I needed a thinking of you card.

Late in July I purchased a small set of blending brushes from The Stamp Market (The set of 3 was on sale for $11.99 – I had never tried brushes before.), this was my first time inking one of them. The brush did seem to apply ink easier than the Tim Holtz mini blending tool (I don’t have a dedicated sponge for each color, so that may be a factor). Not sure if my wrist liked the motion of the brush, though.

Supplies:  Stamp – Stampin’ Up!, paper – Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin’ Up! Basic Black, inks – Tim Holtz/Ranger Distress Inks Abandoned Coral, Picked Raspberry, Squeezed Lemonade, VersaMark, die – Lawn Fawn, stencil – Dylusions, sequins – Doodlebug Designs, embossing powder – Ranger Super Fine Detail white, organdy ribbon – Offray.
