Horsing around

I recently bought this Spellbinder's nestablilities star die and really didn't know what to do with it. So I challenged myself to see what I could come up with. I didn't use all the sizes as it would of been overkill. The first one is cut out of acetate and the rest are cut from cardstock. I only embossed the red and blue star and used the Cuttlebug swiss dots to emboss the orange star. That cute horse die is a new one from Sizzix. Stamp is Hero Arts.
You're probably wondering why there are 3 photos but I wanted to show you the card in different angles.
I am busy cleaning out my house today even though it is a holiday weekend. I can't believe how much stuff I've accumulated in the past year. And while I was outside getting my laundry, I saw a mouse running under my washer (I think it's a mouse). Yuk! I hate those little critters. So now there is sticky traps going around my washer.
Well, back to cleaning and hope you're all having a wonderful holiday weekend!

Some crafty time

I actually spent some time in my craft room today making this card. The frog is a new Sizzix release which I ended up buying because I thought I'd try it out. This is my 2nd card using this die. I made the first one with a green frog and embossed with a texture plate but my husband said it looked kind of gross. And the card was actually going horizontal with a different stamped image but I ended up liking this version a lot better. LOL
It's been so hot lately that I can't stay downstairs very long. So glad that the vog we've been having is gone for now.
Have a great evening!

Be back soon...

I haven't completely disappeared, just been very busy the last couple of weeks. I've also been downstairs in my craft room preparing for some scheduled make-it take-its that are coming up. And, I have made some samples but haven't had the chance to take photos and post them. They are all at the store. I'll be at Ben Franklin Crafts-Market City this Saturday, May 17th from 10-11 am. We'll be making a card. And on June 7th, I'll be at TAJ Clubhouse at Ward Warehouse from 12-2 pm. Hope to see you this weekend!
