Ice Cream Days
I used DCWV paper. I used a cloud stamp for the ice cream using different colors of card stock. The cone is made out of Co'ordinations brown paper, and I used sand paper to bring out the embossing. I used a paper doily from Pat Cataan's and I placed it on the paper. I chalked in the holes on the doily, and when I lifted it, I had a pretty circle design. I think I'm going to punch out my pics with shaped punches and make a collage inside the chalked circle.
I started on a couple of cards tonite, but I wasn't able to finish them. I'm also working on making a pop-up card. I have steadily been knitting the baby blanket, and I'm finding out that it takes much longer to make something when you knit vs crochet. I have to admit that I'm starting to get a tad frustrated. I might start a crochet project for Mother's Day. I started my Mother's Day card, but I have to finish it. I'm starting to try new techniques. I found out that I need more and if possible better markers for making my cards. I'd love to buy copic markers. Maybe I can start by buying them a group at a time. I'd also like to start getting better stamps possibly thru a stamp club. I haven't found one that I really like yet.
