August Crafts and Things

Just popping in to show you something real quick.
I received my copy of Crafts and Things and guess what?? They published one of my cards that I sent into the Rubber Stamps last year. Here is the original post on 360 where I talked about the card.
On a personal note, I'm making progress. I'm so glad I gave myself permission to stop blogging for a few days. I love blogging and the friends I've made here. Sadly, sometimes I have to be and adult and make adult priorities.

I finished a really great card yesterday. I'll take a minute to take a picture of it later this afternoon. I'm not sure when I'll get back to post it, but it will be very soon. I've got a little more catching up to do and before you know it, I'll be back to my normal routine.

I hope you have a blessed and productive and or restful weekend! Choosing Joy! Jacki

I'm leaving you with two pictures of that simple and quick (and now published) birthday card. The stamp can be found at Stamping Sensations. The marbleized paper was purchased at Walmart years ago. They don't even sell it anymore. I colored the cupcake with my trusty Prismacolor pencils and colorless blender pencil. The embossed background is one of the original Cuttlebug embossing folders. I used square punches to create the frame. The brown layer is beneath the embossed layer and there is a layer beneath that. I like to work with windows and frames and 'mats' like you would mat a picture. ETA: Although I've used this stamp many times before, I was originally inspired to make this a chocolate cupcake after reading this post on Dina's blog

...back to work (and play)!!
