Two for Two Sunday!

Hello everyone and a big big thank you for all of the kind comments and well wishes for my MIL! She is doing fine and getting around better than me!!!! *lol*

After a brief hiatus, I caught *$@% trying to get back into the swing of things!!! I tell you, if you miss a couple of days creating, your creative mode of thinking seems to just disappear and that is a terrible feeling! But.....before I post my card, I'm going to post some beautiful RAKs and blog candy that I have received this past week.

From Allison












From Anna Purna



From Tami Jo....blog candy and a candy bar from Romania!!!! (very yummy)

Thank you so so much for the beautiful RAK's and the awesome blog candy, all of these gifts truly made my day!

Anthony & Burt



This card was made with the new Anthony & Burt Stamps from Little C's! For the froggy lovers out there, these stamps featuring Anthony and Burt are a wonderful and fun collection of stamps to own! To see the different images of these two unlikely buddies click here.

details.............
Stamp Anthony & Burt from Little C's, sentiment from SU's Circle of Friends, inks Adirondack Pitch Black and Copic Markers, c/s Bazzill and DP from my stash. I used Spellbinders sm. scallop circle template and my 1" circle punch to mat sentiment. To stay with the theme I used twine instead of ribbon to embellish my card. I applied Liquid Glass over the cup to help give it the look of a ceramic cup. I also applied glitter to Burt's wings and paper pierced the first mat.

Have a enjoyable evening and if you are an Olympic Fan (like me) I hope you are enjoying the games!!!

I'm glad all is well at home these days. Wow, you got a lot of goodies!!!!!

I haven't stamped in about 2 weeks and my mojo is seriously missing. I was going to stamp tonight but ended up straightening up my stamp area and letting my kids play with the scraps.

Hopefully, I can create something tomorrow.

Normally I hate frogs. I can't even look at cartoon frogs, but when I saw these A&B stamps at Jen's house... I gave in! Now you're inspiring me to start on my card. I love your coloring and I think the liquid glass was the perfect touch. This is why I love your cards so much, your attention to detail is wonderful! Hugs, Jenn

Beautiful RAKS and love the froggy card! I was going to hit the link to check out that company and I thought 'wait a minute Risa, you have enabled me big time right now with Pink Petticoat, so STOP, in the name of love if not for the love of my wallet' So glad your back, I've missed ya!

Beth Norman said...

Isn't that the truth about getting away from creating and then having one &*$#@ of a time getting back into the swing of things. Been there many, many times for sure! Love your froggy. You coloured it so well.

Hi Mali,
I love the coloring on your frog card- it's stunning. You may need to give me some pointers - I love using copics but don't quite have the knack yet. The RAKS are awesome! Tell you mother in law hello and give her a big hug from me! :)
