LOTV Thursday Challenge......New Year!
Good Morning Everyone!
I apologize for my absence from the blogging scene, I have so much going on right now that it isn't funny. My husband and my neighbor have finally finished remodeling our basement and the clean up and sorting has been a job indeed. I have a new crafting room and the recreation area for the family looks fabulous. Now I'm in the process of moving my craft supplies back into the basement and sorting through papers and stamps deciding what I want to keep, give away or sale. I didn't realize that I had so much stuff! So, in the meantime, I (we) have our hands full getting the recreation room and the rest of the house in tip top shape before the Christmas. I wish that I had some before and after pictures but the basement was so ugly that I didn't even bother with taking pictures. Now the area is brighter, the walls are paneled, the floor re-tiled, a drop ceiling was installed, and I finally have some storage! Nothing fancy but way better than it was before. I will take some pictures and post them next week:)
This weeks LOTV Challenge is to make a card celebrating the "New Year"! I know that I have a sentiment that says "Happy New Year" around here some where, but at the moment, I had to forgo a sentiment. In my head, I imaged the angel belting out a tune of Happy New Year wishes.
I wanted a sparkly New Year's card and once I had finished coloring my image, I rubbed my Versa Mark pad over the entire image, applied embossing powder and SU's Dazzing Diamonds on top of my image. Then I crossed my fingers and applied my heating gun to my image. I have to tell you, I was rather pleased with the results!
