One More Card and then I'll go to bed.......

Okay- so I have a serious issue here, I went upstairs to "clean my stamproom" tonite...and really, that was my intention since I have TRUE FRIENDS coming to visit me tomorrow....all the way from good old NY......and I MEANT to just clean, but as soon as I finished the gray cards I had it on my mind I had to try another brown one or two and then I kept thinking about trying it also on a lighter color and seeing how that worked......so I did clean my stamproom, but it was just like 3 hours later then I planned.....and lets not even talk about whether I cleaned the bathrooms yet.....but tomorrow they get here at 7:00 pm and I work better under pressure ANYWAY, so I will be knocking myself out because though they moved us in to our house, they have not seen it since and we have made it so homey and gotten new furniture etc etc, so I want them to see it perfect.....but I will get it all done, I always do. :) :) And I had a nice relaxing evening after a nice long nap in the afternoon,,,,what a nice day.....so here are the LAST three cards I am going to do using this technique for a long while because it's just TIME to move on...
I really like this one done on River Rock, I have to tell you that I struggle big time when there is no good place to put a bow on a card.....and somehow I keep thinking it just needs ribbon but truly not every card does and when I tried to put one on this card it looked dumb.....but I really liked this one cuz it used the orange and rust colored pencils so it was a change from the pink and blue, which at this point I am pretty sick to death of.....yes, it's definetely time to move on. Anyway- it's a fun technique and I hope you try it. Last night all my good buddies in NY had a Backwards Workshop run by my friend who arrives tomorrow evening and a couple of my other friends.....I miss those events so much....I miss my DL who would come and then all my faithful customers/friends.....this time I designed two cards that they made, I hope they liked them! Maybe I will post them next time I blog.....cuz I am definetley not posting more Black, Brown, Gray, River Rock Magic.....I am beating a dead horse here....I have managed to make myself sick of a good thing. :) Just make 42 cards using the same technique with slight variations - it works everytime. :) :) :) Okay, so here is the last one here, in blue and brown and then that's it - really - no more. I promise. Last night my dog got sick. I think Mosley taught him that when a bag of dogfood is in the pantry and the bag is slightly open you can stick your nose in there and feast.....cuz I always kept it that way and Luca never touched it till one day Mosely taught him how,,,and I think that's what happened last night, he got into that bag and he got sick,,,,it was coming out both ends.....and "it" woke me up several times last night for cleanup....and why am I telling you this? I'm very bored my friends, no one to tell my problems to, Keith on the road, etc, so anyway, I hope he learned his lesson, and I hope he sleeps thru the night tonite.....cuz last night, oh man, I was so tired at work today I could not see straight. That's why I slept all afternoon, stamped all evening, and didn't clean the bathroom again, perfectly understandable, right? I deserved it.....but now I can promise you that I won't make even ONE more card, before the WHOLE house gets cleaned, cuz that's the way I am, I work best under pressure, and the stamproom is all clean now so I won't be messing it up again till the whole house is clean, bathrooms and all, it's 12:17, and I'm about to START.....till next time, happy stampin, and pity me, I'm cleaning. :):):) Oh darn, I lost the last card, AGAIN....and I had not wiped one out in several posts so I will go and grab it here, I'm gonna try to add it and see what happens.......it didn't work, darn it, but alas, you MUST be as bored as I am with that technique but if not and you want to see that last brown and blue one, go visit my SCS gallery, the link is on the side of this post somewhere.....and now, it's time to CLEAN. Bye.

I LOVE your cards!! and even more then that I REALLY like you as a person, that probably sounds goofy, but i just read this whole page of your blog and It would be so much fun to come to your house and hang out!! You sound like so much fun! I feel bad for you being lonely:( My ex was a OTR driver and it is a very lonely life,so i feel for you.I'll be praying for you that he can be closer to home. What a gal you are to invite someone who would have been all alone on a holiday to your home!!! Your an angel girl!! Maybe this gal will share your oy in stamping? Maybe this is an answer to a prayer... One can only hope. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving and i bookmarked your blog coz i want to come back,coz sometimes i get lonely to and you've made me feel really happy! Thanks!

Hi Karen,
You are sooo talented! I came to this blog, then to your gallery on SCS. You had so many absolutely beautiful cards on there, too. On a couple of them, you said you used "fade technique". I've never heard of it and I couldn't find any info on SCS.
Enjoy your friends' visit and if you get a chance after the holiday, could you let me know what it is? Thanks.
Blessings, Lynn Carlson

PS Happy Thanksgiving!
