- Runs with Scissors
- Welcome. My name is Lisa and I live on a farm in Northeastern PA. I have a wonderful husband of over 30 years and two fabulous sons. One with a wonderful wife and another with a wonderful girlfriend. I have a 6 year old granddaughter and an 4 year old grandson. We have a dog, two cats, and 5 horses. I started into this art as a possible scrapbooker until my good friend Lou Ann (SCS Crooked Stamper) invited me to a Stampin' Up party. Now I'm hooked. We had to turn a room of our home into a craft room for all my stuff. Then I needed a second craft room and did classes. Then I decided to open an in home store using three more rooms of our home. Between Lou Ann (Crafter and IT department) and Mary Ann (Crafter and Jewelry department) and a few other friends, I'm having the time of my life!!!!

Linda Coughlin aka The Funky Junkie. I just love her projects. She has a challenge blog called The Frilly and Funky Challenge Blog. This week they're looking for some texture. So I went TEXTURE! To start, I inked the raised portion of a Tim Holtz ef Bricked with Tim Holtz Black Soot Distress Ink to blacken the debossed areas on the SU Riding Hood Red cs. I then ran my blending tool lightly over the whole card to even it out a little.Here's a challenge for a group that I have never done before. For the last several weeks I've been following

For this card I would like to thank The Funky Junkie. Not only does she (Linda) have incredible cards and tags, but the items that she uses are pictured and listed in links below her project, and you can easily order from her Boutique. And when your order comes, she puts in great little thank you gifts. She also has great tutorials and links. Which brings me to my card.......
I've noticed her last couple of projects containing darling vintage pictures. In her description she tells about a site called Magic Moonlight Free Images. FREE IMAGES! That means more money for goodies.
Anyway, the card, right? I taped lace to the base, added an embossed page, and then SU dsp.

Last night the Gigglers got together to say "Happy Birthday" to four of our group. Pam, Elaine, Shannon, & Vickie were the birthday girls and showered with cards. I CASed these cards from a fabulous cardmarker named Melissa and you can view the card here. I was so blown away, I had to email her to see how she did the inking of the debossed portion of the cards. She told me that she inked the ef before running it through her embossing machine. I have heard of that, but have never done it, or seen it look like hers. I would recommend you check out her SC gallery and her blog.
