"YOU... are awesome" and more moose videos!

YOU are awesome!

Hello and welcome!

As you can tell my blog posts are getting a little behind! I've been working so much but that is slowing down soon. I'm actually leaving town for two weeks in early September but you can still find me on Instagram... and I'll be having a giveaway while I'm gone!

My card I'm showcasing today was a new-to-me stencil I got off of Blitsy (an online discount store). I used distress inks to color in the stencil rays and then sprayed them with Perfect Pearls to make them shimmer. Then I cut out the Avery Elle "YOU" from black foam and silver glitter paper to make them POP against the rays. I added "are awesome" from the coordinating stamp set and a few silver foil stars finish the card.

It's a simple card but I like it and it's going to my grandson who started first grade last week!

Now those moose videos... I'm trying to set up my YouTube channel but you can view the 15 second versions on my Instagram account for now. The last one I took HERE was along the side of the road coming home from work. The ones before that are mostly of the twin moose calves and you can find them HERE and HERE. And I would love it if you followed my Instagram account too!

So check back here around September 1st for a giveaway! God bless your day...
