Ends: Friday, August 7th 6:00 PM EST

Here is what I made this week:


Supplies
Sherri Baldy - Besties IMG802 With Kitty
Patterned Paper - Pink Paislee - Hey Kid
Cardstock - Recollections
Spellbinders Grand Nestabilities - Labels One
3 Twenty Crafts - Say It With Heart Stamps; My Pink Stamper Hybrid Darkest Night Ink
Spectrum Noir Markers

I've had a day of mistakes today, Thursday! I colored the image at my families camp this past weekend. I have beautiful bay windows at home and with the high temperatures we have had it gets quite toasty. I chose to color relaxing at camp nice and cool!! I had to assemble the rest of the card at home because I didn't want to have to drag my scrap room with me! I went against my better judgement a few times today. Sadly, this is not the first one and I should have known better. Never stamp directly on your project!!! I even used my Misti to get the stamps just right. They looked straight to me....well....once the ink was on the card I noticed a little something. It was not straight!! Well, I was not going to re-color the image and start from scratch. I have been getting better about that. I realize that when you make a project for someone you love, they love it because you made it. Of course, you always want to do your best. But, in the world you have to learn to embrace your mistakes too. So in that spirit, I am embracing it BABY!!!! I know you will all be proud of me overcoming the OCD :)

This week I brought out some techniques I haven't used in awhile. I had my heat gun out and thought why not use distress powder and wet emboss for my project. I love the effect of the distress powder on my image.

I have been dying to use the MCT "You Had Me At Meow" and I figured this was the perfect time!! I paired this super cute image with the meow phrase. To finish it off I added some seam binding, twine and a button.
