I will be on a blog break for a while to make fond family memories back home in the Philippines. I’m looking forward to this vacation for some time now and I’m so glad the day has come :) Already dreaming of the things we can do this summer with the kids :)
I was able to use my new Distress Markers last night along with my new Succulent stamps from Hero Arts. I got them from my recent craft haul and so glad to use them this weekend.
I did some test watercoloring to see how the markers works, I think I need a little bit more practice but generally I love them!
I stamped the succulent and pot with Versamark then gold embossed them. I love the raised texture that embossing gives to the images.
Oh and I also used my new Happy Birthday stamp set from Sweet Stamp Shop.

Joining in this week at Muse Challenge # 107.
This is the Muse card for the week from Vicki Dutcher, love the papers and bold sentiment
I used most of my patterned paper stash from Lawn Fawn. Those colors make me happy :)
I used chipboard letters for my Hello sentiment, just add the right dimension I believe, plus a punched red heart for some additional pop of color.
And my take..
Also, entering this card too at Craft Your Passion, Challenge 251, Always Anything Goes.
Checking in quickly to share these mini (3 x 3 in) cards. I used the Sweet Stamp Shop stamps that I have in my stash for a while. So glad to use them today.
I stamped the images and fussy cut each one of them. I then added some sequins from Pretty Pink Posh for some glam.
I also stamped the envelope with the same stamps I used in the cards.
