Here is one last card I made before hitting the road!
Hoping that when I return from vacation I have the latest MFT release waiting for me. Normally it arrives within a day or two of ordering but this time it was well over a week and a half before I left and nothing :(
Spring SEEMS like it's here in Lethbridge! I can't complain because we've had a fantastic winter really. Snow rarely stayed longer than a few days and this week we are expecting the temps to be in the 70's!
Brian stopped at the craft store in Calgary and picked me up a bunch of new supplies so I could give this Mixed Media a little more of a go. As much as I love trying new things....patience making a card is not one of my best qualities. I typically like to spend less than 30 minutes on one card. With the drying time between applications on the card below I managed to do a LOT of work around the house....lol
Jackie shared a tutorial on SCS on Layered Gesso Backgrounds. I mostly followed it ;)

Wow was it nice to have a couple of days off during the week. I didn't get as much stamping done as I had hoped but that's okay :)
Here's a card I created using the Freshly Made Sketch from this week.
I used the super sweet Sailor Girl from MFT along with a die from the Go Overboard dienamics.
