This month's challenge over on the Hero Arts blog includes a theme of "New"... be it a new stamp, a new technique, a new colour scheme. My "new" was a stamp I recently purchased.
I used some Neenah Dessert Storm card and stamped the watch gears in each corner with Cup'o'Joe ink. The sentiment is also from Hero Arts. I trimmed the panel and matted onto some black card before adding to the card base. I added some white faux stitching and some red Kindyglitz to the hearts. In the centre of some of the gears, I added Glossy Accents.
This was actually the second time I did the main stamping. My first attempt got smudged. Rather than chuck it out, I cut some of it up into an ATC
I stamped the "Celebrate" where I smudged it. I'll probably make a card to put this one at some stage.
My exercise programme is going well... expect for yesterday when I had a dodgy tummy... didn't make it to the gym. So did a half hour walk in the 26C heat at lunch time and 30 mins on the exercycle tonight. Had my blood tests today so hoping all this exercise has reduced my blood sugars.. Just have to wait till Friday morning to find out.
Hope all is going well in your part of the world. Summer is well and truly here, it's been nice and warm. Hoping it stays till the weekend, as it's Auckland Anniversary on Monday and a day off!!! Yeah! We are heading off to the beach with our friends....
Thanks for stopping by.
