Here is a card I made for the Embellish Color Vintage . The colors were green yellow and rust! Now admittedly , I don't really like those colors together, so this challenge pushed me Far out of my comfort zone! In addition, this card Is for the Moxie Fab damask challenge. Now Damasks I do LOVE ! and again I made my own stamped background. *Love this new technique. Hope y'all enjoy it.

Moxie Fab challenge

Hey Everyone.!!!
Is it me or does the day seem to go by Wayyyyy to fast when you have nothing to do =P . Today was a really fun but crazy day. I worked an overnight shift at my parents assisted living home. Then at 6:45 I headed home with a resident to meet my family and fellow co-workers at the Central Florida Memory Walk. Finding the cure for Alzheimer's ! It was soo much fun. Too bad I didnt get to stay until the end though I ran off to my other job ( coaching learn to ice skate ) Finally I was home around 3 and I have been busy =)

I don't know how many of you travel over to Moxie Fab World. But let me tell you if you haven't you NEED TO ! lol Anyway they have a challenge right now in Using the Damask. I also used theCupcake's creations color challenge. The colors are fabulous !!!! I personally Just love love the damask design. I find it sooo elegant. Ok so I tried a NEW technique! I stamped my first Background today! yup I created paper !!! Im so excited and I love love love how it came out I kind of shocked myself. I was like let me give it a whirl ( I was really anticipating to throw it away because I'm not the best stamper ! and admittedly I am super clumsy )

Ok so for the background I used a clear stamp of a small damask design in Memento Rich Coco ink. I then was like hmmmmm.... I'm missing something (for sure) and used a pigmented Martha Stewart Ink called sea lavender! OMg its a new stamp pad so i was excited to use it =) ... when I finished I almost fainted and was like ok I must Jazzz this up, that's when I added all the rhinestones. Finally, I have been wanted to do a kind of vintage/elegant decor. So I found a some goodies and BAM there you have it! My card recipe!
I hope you all enjoyed reading my ramblings , I supposed This is the first time in a longggg time that I have actually "blogged"

Time to share some cards

Hello everyone,
Sorry that I have gone MIA yet again. This semester of college has proven to be quite hard ! Not so much academically, but more so in terms of TIME !!!! I have been trying my best and its paying off, both in skating and school, but I wont lie I am def. exhausted and MISSSSSSSS crafting. I still make my cards weekly but I hardly have time to just sit around relax sip some coffee and craft.*hehehe.

On a GREAT Positive note: my skating is paying off and even though I feel wiped out everyday lol I am starting to land my dbl axel and triple sal consistently and am fixing some other details in other triples. Its all coming together! I am almost done with my new short program, and as soon as I finish I am going to video tape and post here on FB. I'm sooo excited to share it with you all! Then I will start my long program (it is sooo long ) lol Anyway I actually made this card like a month ago, but it took forever for me to take photos and upload them! I hope you all enjoy it
