29 Again?

Hi everyone!

We've had a beautiful weekend, unfortunately it went way to fast!  I've been working on some other projects and haven't had a lot to post, - things are coming! In the meantime, I will say that I have been playing around with alcohol ink markers. They are different than pencils, I'm trying to get the hang of it.  I have to tell myself,  just like I tell my grandkids "practice, practice, practice!"

Here is my 1st card I've made using Spectrum Noir markers. This is a cute digi stamp from Bugaboo stamps.  I'm entering this into the Little Red Wagon  Challenge #307, "Try Something New".

Supplies I used to create this card: 

Bugaboo Stamps Stella Over the Hill
Paper Smooches Birthday Sampler sentiment
BoBunny Surprise Collection 6x6 paper pad
Red cardstock
Spectrum Noir alcohol markers
MFT Fishtail Flags STAX
Spellbinders Lacy Circles dies
Fiskars border punch
Glossy Accents
Bakers Twine & a lost button

Just a little something special.

Here's a list of supplies I used to create this card:

Hammermill card stock for card base and image
Scrap card stock and pattern paper from my stash

Happy Anniversary!

Our dear friends are celebrating their anniversary. Woo-Hoo! Congrats! It was last year that we saw a little video at our church and in a nutshell the message was, "We can celebrate a birthday without doing anything.  Celebrate your anniversaries - that's an effort by two people to commit to their relationship through thick and thin for another year."  Not that it takes a ton of effort but too often we take those relationships for granted.

Happy Anniversary David & Julie!

Supplies I used for this card:
Bugaboo digi stamp Gus & Stella
Paper Smooches Good Gab sentiment
White Hammermill cardstock card base & image
Cardstock and pattern paper scraps from my stash
Spellbinders labels #6
Momento Ink - Summer Sky
Prismacolor pencils

I will submit this card to the Bugaboo challenge Anything Goes
