Three words my friends... Neil Patrick Harris!
LOL, wasn't he an excellent guest star? As funny as he was with Shue I gotta say that his scene with Sue was pretty hilarious. My fave part of the episode though, had to be Artie and that cool flash mob. Seriously, who doesn't dream of one day dancing in unison with strangers in a public place? ;)
Ok, ok yes I do actually have a card to talk about today too, LOL... I just got a bit sidetracked in my Glee euphoria. :)
So it's Wednesday and that means we've got a new challenge up over at ATS and this week is all about dry embossing. So pull out that Cuttlebug or whatever dry emboss system you use and join the fun! Remember, every week there is a new and exciting prize being offered and in order to be eligible to win, your card must include a stamp that is sold in the All That Scraps store. Whether it is any of our wonderful in house designs or from the various other stamp companies that ATS carries, the choice is yours. Then be sure to link up your creation with Mr Linky by May 25th at 10pm est and only one entry per person please!
I have to admit that I don't use my Cuttlebug near enough... I've got all these great folders and I love the results when I do use them but I just have a tendency to always reach for the pattern paper first. By the time I get it all cut and glued into place there isn't much room left for the embossing. I think that must be why I like a good embossing challenge every now and then, because it forces me to think outside my normal 'box'. ;)
So I decided to go with this cool dandelion type embossed design and sanded the raised image a bit to let the white core of the cardstock show. Once that was done I added some Diamond Stickles to the little dots for some fun sparkle and shine. Next it was time to figure out who was going to live on this card, so I started flipping through my stamps and right away Ladybug Nora was jumping out at me. Ahhh... a plan is coming together... now I just had to scavenge out where that ladybug ribbon went too (boy do I need to find some time for a good spring cleaning of my craft room). Any who, when I set about coloring miss Nora I thought she needed some black hair and I realized that I've been coloring a lot more black hair recently and I'm pretty sure it's because of the new toner and neutral grey Copics that I recently added to my coloring arsenal. I gotta say that I am really liking them for my hair choices. :)
