Lyrical Inspirations Hop



Welcome back for another  Hop with the MIO Compadres!!

This month our theme is Musical/Lyrical

What a fun theme :)!!

Giveaway is at the bottom!! 

 First my creation for the hop! 

With all the things weighing on brain between family and moving my crafty space to my new shed outside (before pics coming soon) I only had time for 1 card this time :(. 

So, our theme this month was Musical/Lyrical and so thanks to a good Italian friend I have, I couldn’t stop thinking of the tune, “When the moon hits you in the eye, like a big pizza pie, That’s Amore!”

Did you sing it with me ,lol?

For this little baby, I dug out everything in my new space for mediums. I blended 5 of MFT gorgeous colors for my sky. I colored my girl with Prismacolor pencils. My grass along with my cheese part of the moon stamp were done with my Zig Clean Color Brush markers. Yes, you can color your stamps with your Zigs and stamp with them.

I also used MFT inks on the crust and sauce parts of the moon. My lamp is also Zig Clean Color Brushes with Glossy Accents after it dried. I fussy cut everything out, including my hand cut path in med. grey card stock and arranged it and then wrote with a white gel pen, the title!

If you are interested in the stamps I used, they are listed below:

MFT- Mon Cheri

Altenew- Sketchy Cities of America

Altenew- To the Moon

MIA? What? The reasons!

Hello Everyone!!

Happy Sunday! Hope everyone is having a great day. I have to apologize for being so MIA lately, not only have I been unpacking my crafty supplies in my new space, but I have also been tied up becoming a 2x Gigi!!! Her name is Autumn Katherine Riley Arms, and I call her Kat! The Katherine is my mother’s middle name.

I am so proud and have been spending a LOT of time with my daughter and both grand girls!!

I am here to promise you that we WILL be having a HOP for August with Prizes!! So be on the look out for that, but for now, I’m leaving you with this!

Happy Sunday!

Just a Quick Note

Just a little note to my readers to say that I am so sorry I have been absent and that we did not do a Hop for July. Life has been a little crazy this last month or 2.  Among different family issues, I have also been moving all my crafty supplies into a new 10’x 20′ shed (from my  10′ x 7′ office)!!

WooHoo!! Can’t wait til it is complete and I will be sharing pics along the way!

And just so you know, we will be having a MIO Hop for August, so please stay tuned for that, Great Prize and awesome talent coming your way!!
