Hi Stampers,

 Happy Thursday friends !

I  have a couple fun videos for you today .

We  are making this card  shown above today 

using a fun technique  called

Faux Leather 

but we are using  the

Snowfall Accents Puff Paint # 150691

for this card .

In the Glitter Pit yesterday we  had fun experimenting

  other ways  making  Faux Leather/ Faux  Suede.

Here is the card we made LIVE in the Glitter Pit

  using the Faux Leather technique on the right.

I got to use the Let it Ride  stamp set #148765

Love  the Copper Foil sheets # 142020

and  this fun technique with that  gorgeous horse stamp set.

Plus  I finished making this  other sample ( on the left)

  doing another Faux Leather  technique.

I wanted to show you that  layer on a card 

so I used the same Let it Ride stamp set to 

show you both of them together ~

What do you think ?


Both video’s are posted below

along with the supply list  for the

Merry & Bright  Faux Leather cards .


I’ve decided to post just a few  photos

of my leg in a gallery 

but in order for you to see them

you have to click HERE

I posted a photo of my bruise  and then the forming of the blood blister 

and then the photo that  made me go to the wound  clinic on August 12th .

I will NOT post them here on my blog  and gross all of you out 

but I’ve been asked  by so many of you to see my leg

  so  I thought I would just post them in a gallery  and  you can click over when your ready .

  I’m having an issue with  being able to move around

as easily as normal since carrying the wound VAC around,

It’s not as small as my doctor was leading me to believe….  

either way~ It is what it is right ? 

  It’s been quite challenging  for me with my shoulders carrying the unit everywhere .

Truth be told I wasn’t having to much fun in my  studio

this past week & I’m sure it’s  due to  the huge adjustment.

  With all that said,

I  didn’t really have a project set up for the  Glitter Pit LIVE 

it was a challenge to get the videos  filmed and edited for this week .

I’m moving slower and  toting a  7 lb unit around on my shoulder 

has put a slight  hick-up in my giddy-up. 

Here’s  some fun news though,

we  are having our Glitter Queens Blog hop for October .

The hop will be posted  tomorrow .

Our theme is  Halloween Treat Holders .

I do have a video  for you tomorrow.

With the 1st official week  done with my wound vac on

I am happy  to report …..I survived LOL! 

Putting the wound VAC on  last Thursday with 2 changes  done

( Saturday and Tuesday) 

plus the 3rd change being done this morning at the wound clinic 

 I’m so happy  everything is going good  and  meeting the

home care nurses & getting on a schedule with them

maybe I can get into some kind of routine again.

I’m sure  this all has a LOT to do with me  feeling so exhausted.

Thank you all for your  prayers / well wishes/ beautiful cards .

I  can NOT  ever express my appreciation  for  all  of you.

This too shall pass ~ Praise God ! 

After my visit to the wound clinic  this morning

I  should have an idea  when 

the wound VAC can come off  and how long

of a healing time this will take

( a ball park  time frame ) . 

 Leave a comment  below  this blog post to be entered into

this weeks Glitter Giveaway .

Names of the two winners will be announced

LIVE in the Glitter Pit  next Wednesday.

Here are the winners from last week. 

Thanks for peeking in today .

Have a wonderful Thursday friends !
