Getting my craft on.

Hi all! It's Saturday---and Boy! Am I ever happy it is Saturday. What a rough week....and it was long. Too long. Like 6 days too long. Ok. Maybe 5. Anyways, it's over. Phew!

So, I haven't had a chance to get crafty these past few days....but I was determined today. Actually last night I made that promise to myself....I had , HAD being the operative word here, wanted to start something last night, but got too involved in the movie we had put on, and then fell asleep. So much for that.

Anyways, here's my first project. It'd for my hubby for Father's Day next week. I just HAD to try out my new stamp from Unity Stamps...the 'Alex' stamp. I renamed the stamp to 'Keith', for my hubby. lol .

I love this stamp! This is what my hubby does---he's quite handy to have around. Now if the stamp had bigger muscles, as my hubby is a very muscular dude...But hey! I'll make do! :)

I used a Bazzill cs base, with wood grain paper from EP This & That charming collection, green washi tape was from Etsy, the star chipboards are from UmWow Studio, colored with Metallic Distress stain, the stamps are Unity, colored with my watercolor pencils. This was super fun to color.

I am entering this card in a few challenges:

That's right! create a project about weddings. Came at the perfect time, as I am still not finished my wedding album...*GASP!* lol

So, there you have it!

Papers are from 7 Gypsies, DCWV, butterflies are from MM paper reverie, edged with Momento yellow ink, heart from FP Lilac house, LOVE die cut is also from MM, doily and doily tape are from the dollar store. The Love quote is from EP Be Mine collection, pearls are BG.

I'm hoping to finish more crafts this weekend, but we'll see. With this weather, it's perfect time to curl on the couch and watch a good movie. We'll see.

Be safe. Get crafting.
