August Blogging Friends Blog Hop


YAY! I so happy to be back on the hop after 3 months! Welcome to my new blog! Excuse the mess around here…I am still trying to figure things out. I am not super techie and everything is different. So I am sure it will take me lots of time to get it perfect {is there such a thing?!}.

It’s been a long summer break for the kids and myself. The days are super long but the weeks are flying by. My summer to-do list is still very long. My creativity level has been a little low.  Listening to the kids all day bicker and argue and then having to play referee can get a little old and tiring.

This month’s theme is to “recycle.” We can recycle/upcycle an old card or project and make it new again, or use something else from home that we might normally recycle in the garbage bin. I decided to recreate a card and add some more embellishments and try and WOW it up. Make it a little more fancier!

I love creating cards like this one with no sentiment on the front. This is one of my favorite stamp sets… Half Full. I am a wine lover so this set will always hold a spot on my shelf. This card can easily be made into a birthday, thank you, hello, etc. card by adding a small sentiment. The plain card I started with I used watercolors pencils and the blender pen. For this card I knew I needed to give it more color. I love the aqua painters for that and the Shimmer paint is my favorite! Another one of my favorite things to do is to use the burlap ribbon as twine. This DSP is turning out to be a favorite! So many leaves…I love them all!
