Dog-Gone Awesome!

Good morning!
Congrats to Margaret Rajca for taking advantage of Rodan + Field's bundle! She will receive the egg carton full of goodies! :)

Today I am up on the Scrapbook Adhesives blog with another doggy card using this adorable Whipper Snapper image.  I have been on quite the coloring kick lately!  I did a bit of "stippling" on the grass. I used my Mini Misti to line up the sentiment.  (Otherwise mine were ALWAYS wonky!) 
I used Scrapbook Adhesives Crafty Foam Tape between layers for added dimension and Dodz-Mini to adhere the sequins and keep the bow in place.

I love this plaid paper from Lawn Fawn too! So bright and springy!

Any plans for you?  Anything fun and exciting?

Egg Carton and Freebies!

Good morning my crafty friends! 
I have a giveaway for the next three days! I am giving away some sample skin care products from Rodan + Fields!
A little back story.......

I hated my skin.
I suffered from acne into my adulthood...then got wrinkles and large pores.  Oh! And a very irritated red chin on top of all that gloriousness I just mentioned! 
I spent tons and tons of money over the years and basically flushed hundreds....oh let's get real, it was probably thousands of dollars, down the toilet!
I decided to take a leap of faith last July when a friend of mine recommended Rodan + Fields.  
I was skeptical.
Very skeptical. 
But they offered a 60 day money back I figured what the heck! I might as well try this too! (At this point, I thought what do I have to lose? )
And guess what?
It worked!
I started to see clearer, acne free skin. Pores shrunk. Redness slowly disappeared from my chin. 
Wrinkles were softer, under eye bags disappeared!
THREE random strangers have commented over the past 6 months,  how beautiful my skin looks! 
Seriously! ME!? How crazy was that? 
So I did what any other smart gal would do.....I joined the business and became a consultant!
I am so excited to share this skin care with you!
Rodan + Fields has a crazy good sale until Wednesday, March 9th that combines a skin care regimen and their new product Lash Boost.  (Which is freaking awesome stuff! A swipe a night on each eye lid and you get longer, thicker, and darker lashes! See the "before and after" pics below)
If you sign up as a preferred customer, you will save an extra 10% (giving a total savings of 30%), free shipping, and THIS below! 
I have FOUR of these egg cartons to give away over the next 3 days for new customers!   Please e-mail me today for either more information, to be signed up as a preferred customer, or to join me in this wonderful, fast growing business!

Now this is really combining my two loves......crafting and skin care! ;)
Have a beautiful day my friends!

Copic Perfection

I've been crafting a fairly long time. And if you were to look in my craft room, you'd think I'd been doing it for 80 years!  (Think 100 lbs of crap in a 1 lb container!) But there are so many areas I keep trying to improve in.  Copic coloring is one. So I watch videos.  Like tons of them...because I think I have a "coloring video" addiction. 
I then run up to my craft room and practice what I just learned.  In this case it was the flicking motion to create fur on this Furry Friends stamp from Avery Elle. I used several shades of gray here for this cute little pup.  
Then there is this pesky light source issue I seem to be challenged with as well.  Never quite sure if I have the dark and light areas correct.
 Then I remember that this is supposed to be fun. And really, is the recipient going to be looking for where the light source was on my card? Or how great I "flicked?" 
Well maybe...if it's a fellow crafter.  So maybe that means I only send my cards to noncrafters.  LOL!
Anyway, I was pretty happy with my little card.  I still have tons more to learn...but I think that is the fun part of it.  Always getting better...always trying new things. 
Gotta run!
Time to watch another coloring video! ;)
