So I kind of just stopped posting on my blog for a few weeks. I actually went on vacation to visit family. I didn't bring my laptop, rarely checked my e-mail, didn't look on facebook, didn't update my blog--a true vacation ;) It was nice to just forget about life for a week and enjoy the people I love. When I got back life was crazy. I have tried to keep up a little of the simple life of not being on my computer all the time--such a freeing feeling!
Here is a card I made before vacation. The cupcakes are from the SU! set called Figures of speech. It is a set with small images with words formed around the image in either a circle or square shape. I was having trouble inking just the cupcake so I tried something a little different with this set. I cut the images out and made them into unmounted images that I can use with my acryllic blocks. I left the word circles/squares on the blocks to use them mounted. I should take pictures--it actually worked quite well and I like how it all turned out.
sets: figures of speech and paisley (Stampin' Up), snap stamps (Karen Foster)
ink: rose red, basic black ink pads and pretty in pink, so saffron markers.
paper: whisper white, pretty in ink, rose red
