I'm popping in with a quick post, as one of the challenges is closing in a very short time.
Back in October, I bought a set of Chameleon pens that I didn't have a clue about (please tell me I'm not the only one who buys something, THEN does the 'how to' research!), until last week. My first attempts at using them took place in my dad's hospital room. I rolled a tray to his bedside, and coloured and chatted...Can I just say, I will so miss his visits to my blog. He never publically commented "on" them, but I knew he saw every card I made. Hmmm...maybe now I'll visualize him looking over my shoulder as I craft and write my posts. Guess I ought to be on my best behaviour *grin*
The pens are, well...at this stage, I'm finding them interesting. Fuse and colour = instant blending, but the tricky part is figuring how much 'distance' I'm getting with the various fusing times. Sometimes it's a miss, with short-lived blending; other times it's a miss with too long before the blending happens. Sometimes it's a score...sort of. Bottom line: a learning challenge, and right now, I'm embracing it! Much more practice required, for sure.
My husband packed all my STAMPlorations stamps in the mobile crafting unit he brought with me, so I decided to play with a brand new set: Sugar Rush.
This card will be one of many I'll be creating, then sending, to express my deepest gratitude for all of the warm, compassionate, supportive messages and comments I've received from so many of you.
I am so blessed to have you in my life.
Here it is: a sundae on Sunday *grin*
We've received such lovely bouquets...had to use one as my background.
Zipping my card at sprint speed over at Cure for the Monday Blues #37, where I was inspired by Taheerah's cookie crush colours,
and ever fabulous, sweet, wonderful Darnell's NBUS #3 (pens and stamps are NBUS...but not any more!! Yayyy...)
Sugar Rush also features donuts, macarons, and another sundae...I'm going to 'taste' all of them today. Yummm!
