Hey everyone!  Have you missed me?  I can’t believe it has been almost a week since my last post.  Lots of crazy-ness going on here – most notably that our upstairs AC broke in the middle of some very hot and humid weather about a week ago.  When the guy came out Fri. to fix it, we realized it was still under warranty – made it by 2 months – but it was after 5pm and their office was closed, so we had to wait til Monday to get the new motor put in so that we made sure it was approved to be covered under warranty.  My craft room, which is technically my closet, is up on the end of the 2nd floor over the garage, so even with the AC working, it is not exactly the coolest place in the house, but with no AC, it was like a sauna and I couldn’t even sit in there for any period of time.  Anyhoo, that is why I have been scarce, but I have a lot of projects to share nowSmile

We have a NEW CHALLENGE at INKY IMPRESSIONS CHALLENGE today and it is DISTRESS IT!  You do not need to use an image from INKY IMPRESSIONS to play along, but if you do, you will get 2 entries instead of 1 for purposes of drawing for the winner. INKY IMPRESSIONS has a lot of awesome stamps to fit this theme, so hope you will check out the shop! You have until Tuesday, May 28 at 5pm EST to come play along.

You’ll definitely want to make a stop at INKY IMPRESSIONS INSPIRATION BLOG and check out all the fun projects being presented there. Lots of fun ideas and techniques!!

Also, our INKY IMPRESSIONS FACEBOOK PAGE is a great place to see and share INKY IMPRESSIONS creations, so hope you will come join us there.

For my creation this week, I have chosen INKY IMPRESSIONS rubber stamp “LiLi’s Prayer.”  I have colored her with Copics and tried to make it look distressed.  I found this awesome Basic Grey distressed papers and combined with SU and Core-dinations CS.  I ripped the bottom papers for distressed look and used Ranger Distress Ink to add color to my flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts.  Sentiment, which is cut with Nesties, is from A. Jillian Vance Designs.  Sure hope you like it and are inspired to come play along!!

Additional Challenges:

BEARLY MINE – anything goes
LEJ DESIGNS – die cute and/or punches
CRAFTS AND ME – lots of layers (8)
