Stamps: Gratuitous Graffiti 111636, Sanded 109294 Inks: Going Gray, Basic Gray, Black, Riding Hood Red Papers: Basic Gray Accessories: Sanding tool OK, so maybe I have not fallen completely off the earth! Boy, it has been a loooong time since I posted anything crafty. I made this card for my son. He is into the grungy, underground, skateboarder scene (at 8 years old). All about looks with that one! Inspired by a poster I saw at the "J" store (Joann ETC, if you HAVE to know), using the direct to rubber technique, I smooshed the going gray and basic gray ink pads onto the Gratuitous stamp. Then I came back with black and "highlighted" areas. Press paper onto stamp. Stamp sanded stamp using going gray onto card front also. Ink up just the word Gratitude using Riding Hood Red. Cut out. Sand and ruff up edges. Sand heavily the card front. Dust off the card (it gets kind of messy). Adhere Gratitude right over the gray Gratitude on the card front. It is an oh

An Apology Owed

An apology is owed to anyone still checking my blog. Between two broken digital cameras (I would rather have my arms chopped off than be without a camera. And yes, I do see the point - no arms, no point!) and a rather busy back to school schedule my posting has flown right out the window. Big Ooops and Big Sorry but I do love Big Shot! I have been playing around a lot, it is too bad I do not have the pictures. I have been hinting at the hubbie that maybe something new might be in order. Or borrow someones for a coupla hours might do the trick too. We did have a nice end of the summer stay-cation, just the four of us. We went tubing down the Apple River in the middle of the week. Went to the State Fair with another family. Bummed around a local mall and went out for big, overpriced, expensive desserts. We rarely go to a Mall. MOA - Mall of America - we get to about 1-2 times a year. There is just nothing that we need. It is fun to people watch, though. I have so much to post. Quit
