Rachel, Little Angel

Happy Monday everyone! I was thinking we are so accustomed to complaining it is Monday and yet that is 1/7 of our lives!! Hmmm do we wish 1/7 of our lives disappeared? Ya, I hear it you ...if it would eliminate Mondays! So how was your weekend? Ours literally stunk! Let me tell ya these stink bugs are something else and the more I read about them the more anxiety I felt. The reason they are multiplying quickly by the 1000's is because in the US they have no predators to keep their number in check. Now Baltimore is complaining bed bugs are on the rise and we only live 30 minutes from the city. I am so over this and I so want to be out of here!

On a more pleasant note let me tell ya about tonight's card. The image is Rachel, Little Angel from the Elisabeth Bell's Digi collection and a real sweetie and you can buy her right here! I wanted to keep my card soft looking and love the way it turned out!  And, while I am talking about Elisabeth Bell....wait until you see the October digi release for it is so so so so.... you will definitely want it! Stay tune for there will be several ways you can win and possible right here on my blog!!

I tried a new product for me tonight and it is Viva Glitter Liner. Let me tell ya this out glitters Stickles by a long shot. Plus it is more of a 3D effect then Stickles and dries fairly quickly and you can buy it at SCACD!

TIP OF THE DAY:  Cutting out images. Did you ever cut out an image and you see the white of the paper right where you cut? If you cut with your scissors angle to the right you will end up with more of a bevel cut then a straight cut. Try it for I really like it much better then those sharp edges from straight cutting.

Thank you so much for taking the time to come and visit me and I hope you have an awesome week!

Sorry to hear the battle of the bugs continues. I hadn't heard the bed bug thing - yuck! I've got the eebie jeebies just thinking about it. On to lovelier things, your card rocks! Thanks for the cutting tip, I'll give it a try. I usually try to color the edge with a marker, which then bleeds into the image and making things a tragic mess. Much easier to just change the angle when I trim!
