Make It Monday - Wish Big

Oh dear. It's been almost a month since I've blogged. Sorry about that. I have a good reason! I'm 11ish weeks along with baby #3 and I'm pretty much 24/7 exhausted. Hope, hope, hoping that once I'm past the first trimester I get a little energy back!

Love this week's Make It Monday video at PTI. (Loved last week's, too. Made a card, never blogged it. Doh!) I have decided that I am definitely investing either in the Ranger blending tool with multiple pads like Betsy Veldman uses in the video or giant sponge daubers - one per ink color - like Theresa Momber at Crafting the Web uses. The little daubers are just not that awesome at blending. Still, it was lots of fun. I wasn't too sure about this card while I was making it but I think I'm happy with how it turned out. My sweet sister-in-law's birthday was, ahem, a couple of weeks ago so I will be putting this in the mail pronto with her birthday check.

Thanks for looking!

  1. Love this, those blues are so vibrant! Makes those black stars really POP! :)

  2. Love it. Turned out beautiful! I really like the blues and you did a great job of making it look like outer space. Gems are the perfect finishing touch. Glad we got to finally play together!

  3. WOW! This is fabulous!!! I vote the Ranger Ink tools - I have them and love them!!! Oh and I think you are awesome too!
