Here is the card I made today for TechnoStamper's Monday Lunch Challenge. I stamped this rabbit and it looks very Easter/Spring time to me. We are kind of past that time, so I might just hold on to this card for next year. Here is a close up on the rabbit. I watercolored her. I used watercolor paper and my Marvy LePlumeII markers. I've been playing around with using markers and water and paintbrushes.
Here are some pictures of the problems I had. I don't have Staz-On ink, and I found that a pigmented ink was not enough. So I would use clear embossing powder and emboss it so it wouldn't smudge.
Then I found that I was having a problem with there being a definite line with the marker. I found that the best way to avoid this was to put water on the section first. Then use the marker and then use the paint brush to blend it. But you have to be careful not to use too much water, like in the second picture, it seeps over the line.

I rounded the corners of the flower page and I also used a black ink pad on the edges of it (which you could tell in a better picture). I used a purple ink pad on the edges of the white frame of the bottom left hand picture and on the polka dots. The purple strip of paper across the flower page has purple thread stiched on either side.

I also did a scrapbook page last week from my freshman year at BYU and did it for a sketch challenge by Valerie. I will maybe add some journaling under the picture on the left. Overall, I'm pretty happy with how it turned out. My only issue is the glitter in the flower did turn out as well as I had hoped. Thanks for looking!

Now I have to figure out a card for the blue strip on the first picture that says Just a note to go on.

Today was the first day EVER for me to make scrambled eggs. Do they look okay? I wasn't sure if they were. Rebecca ate them though. All gone. But I'm not going to test them to make sure. I'm not sure if I cooked them long enough or did it right or anything. They look so disgusting to me. I think I did them wrong.

I did this card for the Monday challenge at Techno Stamper.
I don't know if I even like this card. It is kind of silly. But in some ways it is easier to send off this way. How awful is that?!
I embossed and colored with pencils the sheep. And I propped that whole rectangle with the brads and everything up on 3D foam squares (though you couldn't tell from the pic). I embossed in white the "thank ewe". Also, sadly, the "thank ewe" is kind of crooked. Sometimes I get a little quick to finish.

Saturday night was my brother in law's birthday party. It was a Rock Band party. We didn't get home until 1am (thank you Steve). Rebecca didn't go to sleep until 12:30am. She is such a party girl. I was ready for bed way before she was. The picture and video were taken at 10:45pm.
You can see she turns around to make sure everyone is still watching her. Loves to be the center of attention.
Here is the card I made for Rich. The star is on a velvet paper that is so cool! I did the negative effect on my cuddlebug embossing folder which gives it the silver on the black paper. I used silver jumbo brads in the corner and crystal stickers for the rock.
