I ended up taking the weekend off from just about everything, which was great. I did spend a lot of time working on the house, we are trying to re-do a couple of rooms in the house so that we can combine our hobby and work spaces. That way instead of me spending my free time downstairs in my craft room and Kip working on the computer or watching TV upstairs we can spend more time in the same room. Our schedules are a little crazy right now so time at home together is at a premium and we end up spending part of that apart. The goal is to move my craft room and the TV all into the downstairs den. We will still have separate areas but we will at least be in the same area of the house. Thanks for stopping by!

I hope everyone had a great weekend. I have a bright and cheerful card to share with you today. If I lived alone, this would be what my kitchen would look like, lots of white, red and yellow. I just asked Kip what he thought about that and he said "not so much". This is another image that was colored at the Karen Lockhart class, this one was done the Intermediate class. In this class, one of the things we were learning was adding texture with an embossing stylus. I added the stripes in the body of the apron but the possibilities are limitless. One really cool thing about this apron stamp is that the apron comes plain and there are small stamps, like these cherries that are available that you can use to change the apron. for my cherry paper, I randomly stamped the cherries on a white piece of card stock and then colored them with Prismacolor pencils. Stamp is from Lockhart stamp company, image and background are colored with Prismacolor pencils, paper is DCWV and the ribbon is from Big Lots.
