...well, when I say I'm going to do something...

Okay, usually I don't always follow through on things that I say I'm going to do - especially if it involves actually MAKING things out of the things I'm buying...but I figured there was no time like the present!

After last weekend's cRaZiNeSs, The Mister and I decided we're going to hide out and be hobbits tonight! It's working out fabulously!

So onward...I FINALLY, FINALLY got around to trying out my very first sketch! YES, I know...Marti would be SO proud. I was reading her blog when I finally decided to get a move on, so I decided to try out the sketch on her blog. From SFYTT (Sketch For You to Try - http://www.iheart2stamp.com/)

And this is what I came up with...

I've been having a fabulous time with transparencies. I used them to try out Marti's "smooshing" (isn't that the FUNNEST word to say? Betcha tried to say it...*grins*) technique with transparencies and dimensional pearls (or Scribbles) and I've ventured on to making cards using transparencies.
The only thing negative about it is that whenever I try to take a picture of it, it reflects the flash back. Or maybe I'm just not the most fantastic photographer you've ever seen. I would place bets on the latter...
But I'm ├╝ber proud that I got this done...at least I've got myself a creative little blip on the May radar...
