Test Run

Hi Crafters,  It has been so long since I have been on or crafting in a long time. just changing my blog looks and getting back into the swing of things. Life decided to get in the way! But for my sanity I need to craft and feel the paper and stamps and ink and the smell of stazon again, sniff sniff.... just kidding...  Well  here is to a new year looking forward to it. Now if I can just get rid of my old header on my blog that would be great!
                                                                                                        Happy Stamping Meg

SCS Color challenge

 I can't believe it has been a week already, sorry peeps for the inactivity blog. This past week has been busy with one of my daughters getting ready for a diving meet, so lots of driving time to the pool and practice on the board then the meet. On to the card seems fitting that I am back with a color challenge. I love these colors together. Crumb cake,baja breeze and soft suade . This is a stamp set from Stampin Up that I picked up a couple of weeks ago at a SCS Get Together,it didn;t have a name on it . I also used a nestie , I went for the vintage look. Well time to help with homework. Thanks for stopping                                                                                                                       MEG

Friday Sketcher

Hi peeps, I wanted to show you another card tonight. I have boys sectional tomorrow so I'm not sure what time i will be home, so i am going to share this now. this is the card that i made using the sketch over at Friday sketcher, always a fun one there. I used the adorable little girl that just graced my mailbox the other day. I colored her in with my copic  using for the first time x-press blend it paper. The makers really do blend better, where i noticed a big difference is when you use the blender pen it is so sweet.
the stamp is from mft stamps. The designer paper is from Basic grey. The card stock is from SU.  Well have a wonderful day.... MEG

Sweet Sunday Sketch

Hi peeps, I am a little late in showing you this, but better late than never. Here is my take on the sketch over at the Sweet Sunday Sketch, another great sketch this week. This was a really easy card to put together. Trying to show case the DP here so I left a lot of open space.  The Card stock is SU and the DP is K&Company. Thanks for stopping... MEG

Viva LaVerve Sketch

Hi Peeps, sorry I have been away my youngest son and I went for a consult last wen. for his wisdom teeth, one had just broke threw the surface. He is seventeen,now my two older children have had no problem they haven't even come in. So we go in for a consult and needless to say Friday he had all four pulled at once. He didn't have and easy go of it. The medicine made him sick on top of having his teeth pulled! It has been a long three days!! That's all it been three days lol.
Well I did get a chance to play along this weekend. Here is the card I made with the sketch that Teresa posted over on SCS / Verve challenge. If you Gals are following The thread over there it's funny one of the ladies does not like tilted panels, so the chatter over there is always fun.
For my card I used Early Espresso and Very Vanilla card stock from SU. The Designer Paper is from Memory Box. I used my nesties and for the first time I used a die from MFTstamps. Oh and check out this cool ribbon rose I made, really easy just twisting the ribbon and gluing it down. I'm not quite sure if you can see the image behind the sentiment in the picture, but it is from Watercolor Trio. Thanks for stopping... MEG
