Take a peek ...

Hop on over to the Let's Ink It Up blog and see who's there today! Thanks to all the folks over there for featuring me on their blog today.

I think I mentioned that I have a stamp camp coming up on Saturday. Here's what we will be making at my station:

I think the final version will also feature some paper piercing, but I didn't get a pix of that version yet. This is a SUO card. Card base is Crumb Cake (fomerly Kraft) and is layered with some Cajun Craize and Paisley Petals dsp. I layered the image on River Rock and it is stamped in Soft Suede on some watercolor paper - both these layers are sponged and distressed. The image is colored with re-inkers - Cajun Craze, More Mustard, Pear Pizzazz and Bashful Blue. I also added some highlights to the jar with shimmer paint, but you can't see it very well in this picture. The gals will have a choice to make this as a Mother's Day card or a birthday card.

DH is putting the final touches on his boat trip preparation. Scheduled departure date is May 15 and he should be at the boat by May 18-19. Hopefully he won't have as much to do to get her in the water this year and he'll be off sailing in short order.

Thanks for visiting!
