Hello, T Gang and other faithful followers! I have been communicating with our wonderful hostess Elizabeth and she is trying to help me get my Blog up to speed! I now have the T Stands for Tuesday logo & link on my sidebar. Also, I am trying a "scheduled post". We will see if it works!
While I am thinking about it, I want to thank Elizabeth and the T Gang for all the inspiration to craft, and to Blog this past year. It is the most posts I have ever posted in a year since I started my Blog in 2013. I posted 47 times in 2018! That is almost once a week! The closest I ever came to that was 38 times in 2016. I already missed last week, so will have to make up for that in the future!
I haven't been crafting much, but will share a card I made for several challenges on SplitcoastStampers this week:
This card was inspired by a fellow SplitcoastStamper as we were to make a card inspired by her for the Featured Stamper challenge. They link us to her gallery to choose a card and copy it, but with changes. The second challenge this is for is the Try A New Technique Challenge; this time to make a monochromatic card. Use the same color ink and cardstock with one or two neutrals. I used SU! Baja Breeze cardstock & ink, and white and black for my neutrals. I used Sizzix stitched ovals dies and rhinestones on my birds. I used Natural Beauty stamp set from SU! (2007) I stamped the white panel with one of the word stamps in the set, about 4 times with my MISTI and then sponged the panel, also. The birds are stamped and sponged. I fussy cut the birds. I also used Wink of Stella glitter brush on the flowers & buds. The "thinking of you " was from another SU! stamp set Friend to Friend 2004. The third challenge is for the Alpha Challenge. Our letter was B and this round is to use natural. images. Also, the double challenge was buds. The name of my card was B For Buds & Birds. The fourth challenge was to use an ignored stamp set or new stamp set never used. I used the Natural Beauty for first time in ages. I could do that challenge for years! I have hundreds of stamp sets, and they probably all feel ignored, as I use mostly my favorite ones, or newest ones. I think that is all the challenges!
Now for the drink related part of my post for T Stands For Tuesday. For those that don't know we link up with our hostess over at Altered Book Lover and somewhere is our post feature a drink.
This is called the Artichoke and they are big on St Patrick's Day. On the inside they have a count down to St. Patrick's Day to the seconds! On the outside they have this Blarney Stone replica.
They do have fabulous sandwiches, and since we had gone down town to our library to a Senior Wednesday to see a Mark Twain portrayer, we stopped in for some. My photos of Mark Twain didn't turn out, but he was good and told a lot of funny stories.
Thank you for stopping by to see me today, We will see if this posts as scheduled. :) And then see if I remember to link it to Elizabeth's T Stands For Tuesday!
Happy T Day!
