GeArS gEaRs GeArS!!.

Happy Saturday everyone! I'm hoping to get some crafting done today. I need to do a little bit of work at some point today as well. I'm running out of cards to show though! It takes me such a long time to color and create a card. Oh well! Even if it takes me a long time, I do enjoy it so much! I'm so happy that I have been able to create again. I was beginning to think that my creativeness would never come back!

Kevin and his dad did a day trip to North Carolina yesterday and they were gone all day. And Kevin has been begging me to make this meal with Spaghetti Squash, but I hadn't been able to find the recipe. While they were gone yesterday I really looked hard and I eventually found it. When I did I ran out to the store to grab the ingredients and made that for dinner to surprise him. This is a recipe from a Bariatric blog and she has some amazing recipes on there.  While I worked, I cooked.

Friday was a busy night too. Michael had work right after school. I ran him to work and then came home and finished the dinner. Bailey wanted to go to the first High School home football game at Allatoona High School, so I ran her there. Then it was waiting to pick everyone up. Kevin and I watched the MotoGP practice sessions while we waited and I worked on a card. I have to multi task LOL!

Here is what I have come up with for today!

I love this image. It has been colored up in my drawer for a while. I know I colored her with Copic Markers, but I do not know which ones. The background was cut with the Silhouette Cameo. The gears border and the individual gears are dies that I cut. Then I took those and used Bronze Embossing Powder to cover them. I used metallic tape around the edge of the card and around the rectangle in the center. I added some additional gears on the inside. No sentiment on this card.

Fabulous steam punk, Susan! I'm loving all those gears. :-D I'm back from my two weeks of travels with only intermittent internet connection and am now trying to get caught up on visiting all my favorite blogs. I'm already so far behind from trying to leave comments on everything that was posted while I was gone -- it's impossible! Hope you'll forgive my just browsing and not commenting on each and every post. :-D

Oooh I love your card Susan - I will have to try and find out where the cutting file for the background came from - it's amazing. What a great image as well, so beautifully coloured. Thank you so much for entering the Crafty Calendar ('Bingo') Challenge this month, lots of luck to you.

Wonderful project and love the die-cuts. I'm so happy you joined our Challenge last week and would like to invite you to join us again with our Challenge this week at Word Art Wednesday. Just want to share God's Word to you coming from 1 Peter 1:24-25 which says, "For, "All men are like grass, and all their glory is like the flowers of the field; the grass withers and the flowers fall, but the word of the Lord stands forever." And this is the word that was preached to you."

Have a blessed day!
