How Wonderful Life is....

May 24, 2014

Happy Saturday, blog friends!!  How is your weekend going so far?  Mine is good...pretty quiet.  So- Josh and I have started running (well, I've gone once) because we want to do a 5K at the end of June.  I am NOT a runner.  In any way, shape or form...and I highly doubt I am going to become a "runner".  You know - the ones who will run in negative weather with snow everywhere and icicles hanging off their nose because they NEED to run.  Never going to happen.  But it is something that Josh and I can do together, and it is a workout that I can add into my weekly routine.  I LOVE doing Oula, don't get me wrong...but I also need something that gets me out of the house sometimes too.  So, running is the perfect thing to add in!!  Wish me luck!

I had the chance to create a card today!!  While I have some projects in the works using the two brand new Glitz Design collections....the 77 collection was just calling my name today.  I layered & stamped & embossed to my hearts content...and this is what I came up with!
I love the colors in this mirrors a lot of the colors I have in my house!  {I think that is why I am so drawn to it!}  The feather stamps from the Finnley collection matched perfectly!!  I stamped them on vellum with embossing ink, then covered one in a regular gold embossing powder and the other in a glittery gold embossing powder.  I love how it gave them a transparent look underneath the beautifully embossed gold.  Plus- I love the regular gold & glittery gold mixed together.  How about you?

I also created this card using these challenges:
-My Favorite Things Wednesday Sketch #177
-CASE Study #192
-A Blog Named Hero #44 - embossing

I hope that you have a lovely rest of your Saturday...we are going to watch the latest episode of The Americans (I think it might be the season finale) and then we are going to go for a run!

Until later,
