Wow it's April?!

Hi there!  Yes, I'm still alive, although I wasn't so sure last weekend!  There is this HORRID virus/flu going around Chicago.  It's not all that shocking with the ridiculous swings in weather we have had.  I was able to get a little crafty yesterday - YEAH!!!  I am hosting the WTUI challenge this week, and I challenged you to use something new, but the catch is - it needed to be purchased over a month ago.  That is SO not a problem for me, sadly, because I haven't had much time to play.  I also signed up for the Studio Calico Mixed Media class, and lesson 1 was posted this week.  Since I followed the class instruction for my card, I'm not going to give you the step by step, but here it is:

I used just a couple of new-to-me things - NeoColor Crayons, Modeling Paste, Lindy's Stamp Gang Flat Fabio mists, Stephanie Barnard mist, Memory Box stencil, Peony Stamp & Stencil kit by Stampers Anonymous, Stampin' Up! ribbon, and a Patterned Brayer.  The only things that were "old" on this card were Basic Grey ink and greeting by Stampin' Up! and Gesso by Ranger.
Here is a close up of the patterned brayer in gesso then colored with the NeoColor crayons:

And here is all the stuff I used on this FUN card:

I so cannot wait for the NEW video to be posted for the next lesson.  The class is less than $20, and it's the best money I've spent so far!
I am on my way to a ThirtyOne meeting to see the BRAND NEW Summer catalog... I cannot wait!!! I am looking for organizations that would like to do fund raisers.  I do one per month.  If you're interested, you can leave a comment here or email me at michellesingle31 {at} gmail {dot} com.
Have a great weekend!
