Card and Stitching Updates

I made this card at a friends house on Thursday.  We used the polished stone technique.  You can find a tutorial at splitcoaststampers on this technique.  You use reinkers and alcohol on glossy cardstock.  The base of the card is not quite navy by SU, the mat is Baja Breeze, and the reinkers used are Baja Breeze and Bashful blue for the sky behind the sailboat.  The stamp set is Winds of Grace by SU.  We used the polished stone technique on the background and then stamped the ship on it. 



I also over the last few weeks did a tiny bit more stitching on my memorial piece.  I need to redo some of the lettering and get it centered and straight.  The writing will read William Alan on the first line and Steinmeyer on the second then below that 06/07/67 to 06/02/2008.  I hope its not to girly or feminine for the recipient. 


Well I better get back to school and Laundry for the night.


New Card

Thought I would take a quick moment and post a card I made the other day.  I cased a card I saw on Cornish Heritage Farm's Website sort of.  I love the colors in this card. 


Tonight (Saturday September 27th) Paul and I got to attend the University of Utah football game.  We won 37 to 21.  It was a great game.  We enjoyed it together. 

School is in full force now and taking up so much time.  But I cant believe that its 1/3 over. 


I will post another card later today.

Bad Pet Momma

  100_1346 I thought I would add a quick post and show you some pics of our puppy lucky.  I was a bad pet momma and let all his cute hair get tangled and a few weeks ago we had to have him shaved.  I will be so glad when his hair grows back.  He doesnt even look like the Shitzu/Corgi mix he is right now.  I will post more later.  I have an update to my stitching project and a couple of cards I have made.  But for now I will leave you with a quick post of our puppy Lucky.
