falling behind...

Things have been a little busy lately. Well, really busy. And the next few weeks are only supposed to be busier. With fun stuff though, so I can't complain. So the first project I want to share with you was finished a few weeks ago, it's so darling. It's almost sad that I'm only using it to hold my keys. Pictures would probably be more appropriate.

The saying is an old Jewish greeting, or at least that's what I read, and it seemed a fitting reminder as I headed out the door to play taxi and run errands. All the fabulous green and blue buttons are from papertrey ink. Which is honestly the best button deal I've seen anywhere. So if you love buttons but hate paying a fortune for them, visit papertrey. If you know of a better one, I'd love to hear, but until then this is where I go for them.

The next card is for sketch challenge 274 at Splitcoaststampers. I got to use copics to color the balloon, it was so much fun. The downside, now I want more copics, lol! After coloring the balloon and cutting it out I then used Crystal effects from stampin' Up to give it a shiny and 3-d texture.
In this shot you can better see the dimesion added by the crystal effects (aka glassy glaze).

If you are wondering what that thing on the right is, it's a bookmark. Whoever came up with this is genius. I found the tutorial over at Splitcoast. And here's a shot of the bookmark:
Sorry that last one is a little blurry.

Lastly I'd like to share with you a card I made using a photo I'd taken years ago, rub-ons and some jolee's boutique stickers. Anyway, that's all for today, thanks for stopping by!!
