It rather denotes a lack of courage."

Spending Time

Just recently my eldest son and his family flew home for a visit.So much fun to spend some time and reconnect with family.
What fun it was to watch Sophia as she became fast friends with her Papa's family.
Sophia and Addison get together for a tea party at Cousin Hannah's house.
I just love those little girls , so much fun !!

Created this layout using a Sketch by Deanne Burton..She is hosting a blog contest on Just My Sketches Blog.
Also this sketch by Deanne, is this Saturdays Sketch Challenge hosted by The Sisterhood of Scrap.
Two birds with one stone so to speak .

Thought I would create a digital Layout for the Challenges. It has been awhile..need to keep it fresh in my head :) all products used are Weeds & Wildflowers Digital Kits.

Couple of Small projects & Embossing tip

Most of my spare time lately has been pretty well planned out for me..but I have been able to squeeze in a few projects here and there.

This little guy is my first attempt at using Coffee for a stain and also creating hooded eyes.
My daughter- in-law thinks he looks like a potato and my husband would not like to run into him on the street...how bad is that !
I figured that maybe he needed a heart with hugs on it and a kiss and a hug to his backside in hopes that somebody feels sorry for his homely little self and dishes him out some love :)
All digital products to create this layout are from Weeds & Wildflowers.

Last of the cards that I have been creating for A Scrap Addict Sketches.
It has been a great time being part of Deanne's Design Team.
I look forward to all the new teams creations.
Thanks Deanne your the best!

Via a request for tip on embossing on my canvas project.

I would suggest for your needs to use a Versa Mark pen the fine tip end..no worries on the tapping off...just turn over and give it a thump with your finger ..should clean off pretty easy.

For a hard back Canvas just give it a tap with your knuckle this should do the trick

Also if stamping on a
stretched and mounted canvas, use your hand on the back of the canvas for support when pressing down stamp for a clean image. Hope this helps :)
Hope all is well in your Crafty World and thanks for stopping by :)
