Crazy Week

Ok, it was a busy week, but I am going to get better about posting. Work was crazy and I am getting ready for a business trip next week that always keeps me on my toes. I went on a minor shopping spree last night with a good friend from work. We hit Arundel Mills mall which is half outlet mall and half normal mall. I did well and spent a little more than I had planned, but oh well you only live once.

This morning I hit the Asian market and stocked up on veggies, chicken and shrimp. I love their food always fresh and so much cheaper than the regular grocery store. This week’s menu includes: Curried Shrimp, Chicken with Peanut Sauce & Lo Mein Noodles, and Grilled Chicken with Queso Verde Sauce.

Alright on to the card of the day – Which starts today. I am going to try and post a new card that I have created every day – Let’s see if I can do it!

Card of the Day: Sweet Indulgence – Thinking about you

Ok, I used the card HERE as inspiration. I changed up the colors a little and cut down on the embellishments. I do want to try and sew on my cards, but I need to master the copics before I take on that challenge. I am trying to “ground & shadow” my images. I am not there yet, but I think this was a decent first attempt. I am going to sign up for the Suzanne Dean Copic class I have heard a lot of great things and I am hoping it will help with my technique. The design of this card is based on the use of layers the only real thing that “pops” is the coffee mug in the left corner that I put on a dimensional.
