Never Too Late

Good Saturday Afternoon and wishing you all a Happy Easter since I will be spending Sunday with my Mom.
I'm squeezing in at the last minute on the Grungy Monday challenge. I think this card also qualifies for the challenge at :
Linda has put a link to a video on inking up you embossing folder and then running it through you machine. After I got mine out I hit it with some Aged Mahogany for a little color. My goodness, once you find Tim Holtz and all his wonderful products I don't see how anyone couldn't be hooked.

It feels so good to be back in my studio after a whole week. I thought I had strep throat, but fortunately that was a negative, but after a shot and a week of antibiotic and a couple of days with no voice or one that sounded like a cartoon, I feel like a human being again.
Even though I missed challenges last week that I had ideas for, I picked up the new challenges for this coming week and hope to get quite a few done today. I'm still trying to get some kind of a schedule going with visiting the nursing home, but it seems like things just keep cropping up. Such is LIFE.

Supplies: Kraft Card Blank 4" X 5 1/2" Paper Reflections, Papers: Inkssentials Manilla Card Stock, Stamps: Stampers Anonymous-Purely Random, Ink: Ranger Archival Ink-Jet Black, Distress Ink-old paper,pumice stone, aged mahogany, Sizzix Texture Fades embossing folder-Rays and Retro Circles, Tim Holtz idea-ology-game spinners, Bo bunny Brads, Fiskars corner rounder punch, Stampin Up dimensionals. 

Thanks for visiting and viewing,
Beverly G ♥

Hello Beverly,

good to hear you are feeling better ! it's frustration when you want to be creative and you body refuses because it's sick...

I like the background and backgroundtechnique. Your whole composition looks like a surreallistic project : makes me think of a painting of René Margritte !

greetings from Belgium
Inge

Great card. Never thought to use the spinners on the round embossing - clever idea!
