I had fully intended to post this last night, but we got wrapped up in Survivor (STILL can't believe JT got voted off with 2 idols at tribal council - DOH!!) and the NFL Draft. My hubby was so excited that the Lions actually got what we think will be a great player. He's already planning on the Lions going to the play-offs and talking about season tickets.....or at least tickets to ONE game this season! LOL  He's even stoked that today is DAY 2 of the NFL Draft!  We're about due for a good football team, but of course, time will tell.
Okay, enough TV and Football Talk!  :)
So, yesterday was my Tutorial Thursday Challenge over at Scrap-Friendzy and lately, I've been playing with paint.  Messy but OH SO FUN!!  And because yesterday was EARTH DAY, it was only fitting to play with paint on something that would most of the time go into the garbage.......PLASTIC packaging.  In our house, we save and recycle lots of things (heck, I even recycle egg cartons and make palm trees from them - lol).  Anyway, I've been playing with the plastic & paint.  Like Wednesday's card, I used the stiff packaging plastic with an embossing folder and some paint on the Depends card.
Yesterday I thought I'd add some stamping to the plastic and see what happens!  Turns out I LOVE the result (I've got a few layouts in mind I'm going to work on this weekend using this technique).  WOO HOO! 
Okay, so enough blah blah blah, here's the card - if you want step by step instructions, join us over at Scrap-Friendzy - we've got terrific challenges Monday thru Friday, great talent and even a little inspiration.  You won't be sorry you stopped by!
Okay, here's the card for real this time :)

I hope you all have a fabulous weekend - we're due for a wet weekend, so I just may get a little scrappy time in and THAT excites me!  I'll have to try & get a photo of some new stuff my mom is up to too - once you see these, you're DEFINITELY want one!! :)
