Well it certainly has been a long time since I got on my laptop...going on a full week! How I miss all of you and my crafting! My one week off in between spring semester and the start of summer classes sure was a rough one with no crafting involved. Some of you may have read what's been going on over at my Mom's Blog. For those of you who haven't.....I got the nasty flu bug....it started last Sunday night and by Thursday I was so weak, had such bad stomach cramps that my Hubby and Mom decided that I needed to go into the ER. So Thursday night I spent 3 1/2 hours in the ER...had an AMAZING doctor who was very nice and gave me an IV and 3 different meds. When he found out that I was supposed to be a bridesmaid in my cousin's wedding the following day he said we will have you looking great and ready to go to that wedding in no time. Once I got the IV my hubby said he couldn't believe how good I was looking already. That was the first night that I slept all night. Made it to the wedding on Friday, survived the ceremony, the dinner (although I hardly ate anything), and the first part of the dance (however I didn't do any dancing....but my uncle's band was playing so I wanted to listen to them for a little bit). Yesterday I was very weak...think I may have over done it at the wedding so I rested/napped all day. My symptoms still aren't going away so I will most likely be making a trip to my regular doctor tomorrow probably for more tests. However, today I am hoping to get a little bit of crafting time in....I'm feeling up to sitting at my desk for the first time in a week. So that is why I have been MIA!!!!
Onto some fun crafty news for you! Susana has some fantastic blog candy over at the store blog that you don't want to miss! AND on Friday you don't want to miss the Summer Time Fun Release by Victoria Case for SCACD! You are going to love this AMAZING set!!!! The whole set is adorable and there is a bonus that you get when you purchase the whole kit....you get TWO bonus accessory stamps! How awesome is that?!!!
Today I would love to share the Anniversary card that I made for my hubby (thank god I got this finished before I got sick!)
Day Dreaming by Elisabeth Bell for SCACD. As soon as I saw this cute stamp I knew i wanted to make an easel card and I used the color of my hubby's garage so it looked like I was looking out the window of our "someday" house! :)
Copics. I've used Ultra Fine Flower Soft in both Raspberry Fizz and Sage.
Prima Mini Roses. Copic Colors YG95 and YG97 were airbrushed used my ABS to create more of a "grass look" on the piece of green cardstock. Airbrushing was also used to create a shadow effect behind the tree.
Tsukineko Psst Shimmer Spritz in Sheer Sparkle. I love the sparkle and shimmer you get from this fabulous spray! Window pane was painted with Adirondack Pearl Paint. Then Diamond Glaze was added to the windows for that real glass look.
Here are two more views so you can see the dimension in the card. If you click on each picture it will make them both bigger.
I hope you have enjoyed this card! I loved making it!!! Don't forget to head over the SCACD blog to check out that blog candy! Susana also has added some WONDERFUL products over this past week that I have been away from blogland! She is now carrying Maya Road Mini Chipboard Sets, Lumiere Mini Paint Sets, and the much loved Tsukineko Psst Frost Spritz and Vanilla Smooch Spritz are now back in stock! Happy Shopping!
