... and bling! But what girl doesn't?!? ;)
Before my little diagnosis, I wore red a lot and my signature line was *Lady In Red*. ;) Now I am *Lady in Blue, Green, Purple or Black* haha ... the disease brought on rosacea and I am ruddy faced so the red just won't do anymore. Ugh ... vanity!! :(
I have been absent much lately. I moved over the Labor Day weekend into our new home! Yay for me! I'm a first time homeowner! :)
On a sad note, we lost a powerful presence in our family. My BIL passed away September 5th. Prayers for my sister, Lilly. She's a soft, strong woman and will be OK but is filled with grief right now and we all know ... there's no cure for that but time ... and prayers.
My NIL had a baby shower on September 8th. I made her ... well ... in the process of making her a pregnancy journal. You KNOW I will be on here when I am done to share that with you! ;)
I have swaps I signed up for that are due starting on the 15th and I am beside myself! I really did not think it would take this long for me to unpack! 8-O Yes! I really had that insane thought ... but I will get these done because I meet my obligations!
On that same token, I wanted to post this card by the 12th to submit it to Raisin Boat blog for their challenge that is due today! I thought I had more time and I am finding out .... not so much! :-\ But I did get this one done ... and in time ... now to share!
The challenge involves this sketch.
I saw something like this on Pinterest with red on red with some white and bling and I had to come up with my own and here it is! :)
Red card stock from my stash, printed paper from Stampin' Up, tinsel embossing powder from Michael's and ... bling, ribbon and stamp set, Forever Love, from my favorite online store, Raisin Boat! Have I mentioned that before? ;) lol
This is a close up of the bling. The embossing did not photograph well but that is probably because of poor lighting in my home. Easy fix for when Jay comes home. I have the light bulb but I don't dare get up on a ladder!
Also, had to show you this ribbon! I hadn't seen it before and now that I saw it ... I must have it! ;)
Traffic to my blog has died down over the past few years but I am gonna have to fix that! I think I am gonna offer some blog candy on FB and Pinterest. See if I can get some interested generated on here. :) I'm such a showoff! ;)
