So, I've been on vacation for the last two weeks. Hubby, fur baby and I drove home to Illinois and Wisconsin for our annual visits home with our parents. We try to do big jobs for them while in town so they don't have to hire anybody. At Andy's Mom's house, we moved furniture since she was getting the carpets cleaned. We also started to go through and sort/take home/throw away,etc., the unbelievable amount of stuff that his Dad had accumulated over decades (and didn't throw out). And that was just the office. I shudder to think of the massive amount of crap he had in the basement, that we and Andy's sister and brothers need to sort through. (I don't normally post really personal stuff on here, but Andy's father passed away a couple months ago, just to keep you up to date.) At my parents house, we power washed and stained their deck, so that's good for another couple years. Along with smaller tidbits of things, we did accomplish getting some things done for both sides of the family.
So, coming full circle, all my blog posts for the last two weeks have been scheduled way in advance....except this one. I thought for sure I had them all done, but I goofed up and didn't have anything done for this new challenge. DOH!! Good thing I brought some crafty supplies home with me. I actually made 5 cards while at home! (Holy Crap Batman!) So even though I told Leslie that I would have to sit this one out, I realized I had something that I could use for the new challenge, which is to use bling on your card or project. Here's what I made:
Here is the inside:
I know there's not a lot of bling on this, but I didn't bring a lot home with me, so hopefully this will suffice with the sequins. My card is based on the now closed Case this Sketch #132. When I made this card, it was still open, but being in northern WI, the WiFi doesn't always work. At all. Nope. At least I took some pictures of what I made. Maybe I'll even blog about the other cards in the near future. It could happen....
I hope that you get the chance to play along with our Bling challenge at Shopping Our Stash. You know you have tons of rhinestones and sequins that need to be put on a card or project. Go and make something, but make sure you link it up to us so we can see it! Oh, and don't forget to check out what my teammies created for your viewing pleasure, and leave them some bloggy love! Thanks for stopping by, and I hope you have a great day!
