It’s been awhile!

Things have been so hectic here at my house.  We’ve been looking (and bought) a piece of property and are preparing to have a home put on it.  So, we are now packing everything up and preparing for moving day.  I can’t wait!

I have been crafting some during this chaos.  Christmas cards need to be completed along with sympathy and get well cards.  This isn’t including I have birthday cards to make prior to the holidays!  The work of a crafter is never done……

A dear friend has been very ill for the last couple of months.  I can’t do much for the illness, but I could make a card to bring a smile to her face.  And, since the stamp used was a House Mouse stamp (Quick Recovery) she could help but smile.

I did have some difficultly coloring this image with my Copic markers.  For some reason, I just couldn’t get the blending right for the basket and no matter what color combination I used, the basket looked like a blob.  So, I put the markers up and pulled out my Prismacolor pencils. Big, big difference!  I hadn’t taken much time to play with the pencils because my markers always work so well.  However, I did find with this image the pencils came out beautiful.  I am very pleased with the look and the blending.

I used the Sue Wilson Stacked Diamond striplet in the background and used sticky paper with Fun Stampers Journey Sparkle Dust behind the cut outs.  The image was cut out using the PixScan mat.  I love having the ability to take a picture of the mat (image on the mat, of course) and sending it to the Silhouette software to trace and cut out.  No fussy cutting for me.  YAY!  Don’t know what I would do without my Silhouette Cameo to help with the cutting.  It is awesome!

In addition, I have started using the Fun Stampers Journey Fusion Inks.  These inks are great because they can be used just like an Archival ink, but Copics can still be used with this ink, unlike Archival inks (Archival inks trash Copic nibs!).  In addition, this ink can be used on any surface.  This beats trying to find which ink to use on paper and then a different on wood, fabric and acrylic (heat set on non-paper materials).  I  have provided a link for the FSJ glitter and the ink, give it a try and let me know what you think.

This card is entered into the House-Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge.

I do hope you enjoyed viewing my card and reading my rambling.

Hugs!
