Thank you EVERYONE! for stopping by to participate on the blog hop and your KIND comments. It warmed my heart to know so many of you came to look and your words of encouragement has made my last couple of days superb! I am going to try my best to stop by all your pages. Please give me some time as I am recovering from the terrible carsickness I had for driving 9 hours straight home and a mild stomach thing. I don't travel well on long trips. :) Here are some pictures from the reunion, I think between all our cameras we took 200 pictures. (sorry took pictures down after some discussions about family photos on the net)
You can see my cards on display on the board for the family Talent Show... and I played piano accompaniment for my husband's voice piece. He did a classic song and sings pretty well on italian arias. Those songs I need to practice a lot for, thankgoodness we picked an easier piece this time... now back to business.
Congratulations to PAM, for receiving the Masterpiece you rocked the sketch! A long time player with us and she needed some encouragement to do this #24 and it looks fantastic :) And to all the winners of the Remarkables , Cabio, Karen Arthur, AKAStamp- Karen J and Brenda a big round of applause!
A Final big thank you to Gurlee Girl Stamps for being our monthly sponsor and this week's sponsor is our very own Sue from McMahon Designs
This week's I used Tilda Stamps and some Wood paper from McMahonFiveDesigns. The papers I used were Sitka - lighter colored pictured here and Wengewood- darker color picture. The weight of it is just light a piece of paper - featherlight! That was some amazing stuff, you should get one just to try. I stamped the birdhouse using Stazon ink and then cut it out using Xacto knife. The only recommendation I make is to be care not to bend it or pinch it when you are cutting around the curves. I don't know what happens if you do. It's like paper, so if it creases then it would weaken. Mine stayed intact pretty well. Then I sponged the edges it, use it just like paper basically.
I also used the Distressed look for Charisma Cardz#41. I regularly check to see if I can play along over there :)
