What I've been up to this week

It's been a busy and quick week, I love it! The quick part at least. Had some volunteer opportunities with CERT... no emergencies, just preparations and education for the Auburn/Kent valley projected flooding. Also been working on some techniques and cards for 2Peas StampToberfest challenges.

This one is with the first Stamps of Life set and a little cheapy stamp (the flower). I've been wanting to try the crayon shading technique but since it's been a LONG time since I've had kiddo's in my house, I had to buy some. I really liked the effect. I also did masking with the flowers which I have never been able to do successfully. Next time I will do the ink distressing only on the flowers, I think it would have looked better. Stamps of Life again with CTMH papers and my new circle punches.
The next three are called "scraplings" and are intended to use up your scraps. They are 2.5" x 4.25". I don't really do Halloween but did this for the challenge.

This stamp is part of the new Unity Stamp set. Love the sentiment but not real happy with the way the sock doll stamps out. I did this one on white and cut it out to mount since it didn't show up real well on the inked background.

Close to My Heart stamps. Love the little deer and she just cries out to be heat embossed.

Today I am going to have lunch with Becky Delacruz (My neice) at Olive Garden. Dave doesn't like OG so I'm taking advantage of his NOT being there... sorry Dave. It will be nice to spend some time with Becky.
