Crayon resist card

I had to try my hand at a technique that Gina K showcased on StampTV a couple of weeks back, crayon resist. Here is my card:

I really love this technique, its like magic when the image appears, too cool! I am not happy with my card though. Love how the image turned out, but after putting it all together, from somewhere came some stray ink and I got a smudge on it, so that is the reason for the ribbon across the image panel, lol! Made me so mad! I did not want to ditch the whole thing though! But it has kinda grew on me now, lol! Ever have a card do that to you? GROW on you? I have another card that I will post tomorrow that has done that to me too, lol!

I still have not got my Janome Sew-Mini sewing machine out of the box yet, how bad is that?!! I am determined though that this weekend I am going to do that and watch the videos at StampTV so I will know how to thread the darn thing even. Should be fun! ha!

Well, like I posted over there on twitter, the electric company here said something about us having rolling blackouts in the area, not because of high usage, you know, blowing a transformer or something, its something THEY are initializing...I have no clue how it is suppose to HELP or what or how long one will last. I turn the air off for like 5 minutes and I'm sweating, lol! 105 degrees today....COME ON FALL!!

Ok, hope you all have a wonderful Thursday! Just think tomorrow is FRIDAY! lol!
