Stamping Weekend

This past Saturday, I had the pleasure of crafting with Angi Barrs. She and her daughter, Rachel, came all the way from  the Woodlands to my neck of the wood and we had so much fun chatting and crafting. While we're crafting, Rachel who loves dogs, keep my puppies entertained. :)

Of course, you know how it is when you're crafting with friend. You tend to chat more then doing the actual crafting. Oh yes, we even sneak in a trip to Michael's after lunch.

Here's a peek of me and Angi creating.

Angi working on her layout.

Please ignore the messy desk behind me. ;)

At the end of the night, we actually did completed some project. Angi finished a card, a layout and another half done layout. I completed 2 cards. Here's one of the card:

At first, my plan was just stamped the herringbone background with versamark. But, looking at it I feel that it looked too plain. So, I gently remove the tag and added color to the herringbone pattern using pastel to add the color gradient. Then put the tag back.

And, for some extra embellishment I added some glitters. The brad is courtesy of Angi from her My Mind's Eye stash. Another added benefit of crafting with a friend, you can raid each other stash. :)

Angi, thank you so much for making the drive down. I had so much fun!! Well, that's it from me today, creative peeps. Thanks so much for stopping by here. May your Monday starts off fabulously!
