Technology won

So my computer died. I've had it for about 4 years so I guess it was bound to happen. My husband is working very hard to try to recover all our files but I don't know if he will be able to. Until then I won't really be able to post anything. Right now I'm on my nook color and its a little hard to post from here. I do have some prjects I was going to post, a card and some other suff. I will do my best to post again soon. Thanks guys.

April Showers

bring May flowers! I just love that saying. Its so springy and happy! So I decided to use it for my card! Don't you love when you can do that? Creativity at its finest! The stamp and ink are from Studio G, glitter is Martha Stewart carnelian, the flower inside is Prima.

I used a glue pen and glitter to do the sentiment. I'm not sure if I like how it came out but I do like the effect. I might try it on another card.

The second card is an Easter card I already blogged about. I wanted to give a close up picture of it though since its such a cool card! This is the tutorial I used to make it spin. Super easy and so impressive!

A Success and A Miss

Meet my success from the other day.

My Easter cards! I had the patterned paper for the longest time and I finally decided to use it. It isn't really my style because I don't really like pastels. But since pastels and Easter go hand in hand, I figured I'd use it for all my Easter cards. Then it would be gone and I wouldn't have it sitting in my collection for the next 6 years. The card in the center actually has glitter on that stripe. It looks much better in person. The one on the left is a spinner card! My very first! I used the tutorial from Scrappin' with My Bug. Its actually really easy. I did it in one try!

Now on to my miss.

I recently bought a bunch of tiles at the home improvement store for 39 cents a piece. I looked around on the internet until I saw this. Etched coasters! It seemed easy enough and I had all the supplies so I gave it a shot! It was so easy. The hardest part was waiting for the etching cream! I think my tile turned out okay but next time I do it I need to use more etching cream. You can't tell in the picture but theres some spots where the etching isn't as good. I do like the effect though and I can't wait to do it again!

Well thats all for now! I'm working on something else now but I can't post it until Wednesday since its a gift and the recipient reads this!

Crafting, crafting, crafting!

Whew it has been a busy week! For a few days I was sick with a little cold. But my good friend Zicam cleared that right up! No worries though, I did TONS of crafting today. But since I didn't finish until after dark, you'll have to wait until tomorrow for pictures! Trust me, it will be worth it!

P.S. - Woohoo! I finally made it to 60 followers! How do you think I should celebrate?
