Misty Eyed


Sometimes the littlest of things can make me misty eyed... Like seeing the boys play for an hour with trucks in the fort they built, or watching my old dog limp-wondering how long he'll be with us but thankful he's still around. Could be something as little as a quick email from a friend, checking up on me.



Today on the Artful Delight Blog, I offer some tips and tricks on spray misting! I'd love for you to go check it out. These two cards feature items from the June Artful Delight Card Kit and the Mr. Huey Spray Mist available at the store (they also are now offering the new seasonal distress ink from Tim Holtz!). Remember to create a project with either the scrapbook layout or card sketch for your chance to win next month's kit. Details are here!

    Thank you for sharing your tips and tricks on misting.
