The middle Name Game
These are the rules:-
You must post the rules before you give your answers.You must list one fact about yourself for each letter of your middle name. Each fact must begin with that letter. If you don't have a middle name, just use your maiden name.After you've been tagged, you need to up-date your blog with your middle name and answers.At the end of your post, you need to tag one person for each letter of your middle name. (Be sure to leave them a comment telling them they've been tagged and need to read your blog for details.Ok here goes!! )
My middle name is Jean
J is for Jesus, I am Christian
E is for Estatic or Excited, I'm estatic/excited about the way my life is going with my husband, kids and life in general.
A is for Artistic, I love to create cards
N is for Navigate, I drive my kids all over town! (I need to leave now to pick up my son).
Wow, that was hard!

The sun is finally out today and it should reach the high 50's. It is beautiful out but it won't last long, the rain will be back this weekend. We have year round school here and my son will be off track for the month of February, Friday is his last day, I'm hoping for nice weather so he won't be couped up in the house. I hope the weather is nice where you are :)

Wow is it windy here in So. California! Our power went out at least twice last night, luckily my husbands alarm has a battery back up so he and the kids got up on time. So today I have decided to stay in side except for one little trip to go pick up my new Stamp In Up catalogue :)
I used a really great technique to make this card. It is quick, easy and looks beautiful! I made the background that I stamped the flowers on, the technique doesn't have a name, I'm open for suggestions :)
1. Cut a piece of sticker paper to the correct size and remove the carrier (the paper covering the sticky part).
2. Take a piece of gold foil (can be purchased at craft stores), crumple it up real good, then open it and lay it on top of the sticky side of the sticker paper with the non-shiny part of the foil down. The foil is on a plastic liner, so after you rub the foil, pull the plastic liner up and off of the sticker paper.
3. The foil will look like marble . So now with a fluffy brush, lightly brush on pink Pearl Ex (also found at craft stores), making sure it completely covers the sticker paper. Wipe off the excess powder with a paper towel and you are done. This makes beautiful background papers and you can try this with all different colors!
4. Stamp you image with black StazOn ink and let dry.
