Crazy Crafters Blog Hop with Sandi MacIver

Hi Everyone! Thank you for coming by and having a look at today’s creations, Let me tell you this has been a crazy week for me, rather than January being a time to catch up with everything which is what I am used to, it has been a week so busy and filled with an emotional rollercoaster!
 Sale-abration started on January 4th and this is the best time of the year to be a customer or a demo!  I had a little health scare that sent me from work to the emergency department on Thursday and on Friday I was informed I no longer had a job, this is both a very sad and exciting time for me, after 12 years at the one work place I am leaving behind co-workers who have become friends who have become family, but I have to admit I never would have walked out the door by myself but I now find myself with the time I really need to grow my Stampin’ Up!® business.  I hope your New Year shows as much promise as mine does, please show your support below!
Today the Crazy Crafters are very lucky to be blog hopping with the amazing Canadian Stampin’ Up!® Demonstrator Sandi MacIver!  OMG, I am so excited, you are currently visiting my blog – Sandra Mastello in Australia and you will be visiting lots of different places in your hop today. There is a list at the end of the page which will help you to move along from blog to blog so you see can see all the amazing projects.
I choose to CASE this beautiful watercolour resist technique card by Sandi.  Isn’t it gorgeous?
Here is what I eventually came up with, I actually made 8 cards today I glad I finally came up with one I was happy with, LOL!  I even photographed step by step techniques, but that was on a completely different version! Unfortunately the gold embossing doesn't show up well in my photo, but I used it for both the greeting and the dots (It looks much better in person) to do the dots I just used the back of a paintbrush in the versamark (I'm sure I would have a dot stamp but this seemed much faster than finding it, he he he)
