Blogging With the Stomach Flu

I've been battling the stomach flu ALL day. I'm hoping the worst of it is over. I was doing ok in the morning with the kids since Parker went back to sleep before Brady woke up. But as soon as it was both of them, I had to call for reinforcements. Luckily, my mom was able to telecommute for the latter part of the day.

This is a card I made YESTERDAY before the dreaded flu came about. Remember last Friday's card? When I went to paint the doily, I placed in on a piece of white card stock first to see if I'd be able to use it as a stencil. Guess what? I was! How cool is that? Now, some of the places are kind of smudged but I went with a shabby chic feel so I was ok with it. The doily is from the Beeez Kneez Kit from Caffinated Cropper. The paint is Creative Inspirations Paint in Turquoise. I promise to start using other colors soon! The lace is recycled from a gift I received and the stamp is Ippity Just Wanted to Say (available in my sidebar.)
I took another picture in hopes that you could see the shimmer from the paint. Can you see it? I'm not sure. Well, can you see ANYTHING other than my messy desk? ;) The Creative Inspirations Paints are AMAZING!! Look at how vibrant the colors are! I love that! They are opaque unlike some other paints I've used before. They are super easy to use too, just a regular old paintbrush (I used one of Brady's.)

Alright everyone, happy Wednesday night! Hugs!

  2. Love this shabby chic look. Great way to use the doily has a stencil. I'm going to have to try this technique. Ok this sick bug has stayed around long enough. It's time for this ugly bug to move on. Hope you start feeling better really soon.
