Hello! I hope your weekend was great! Ours was super busy, but so fabulous. Saturday morning I treated myself to a pedicure, which I desperately needed. I was surprised that they didn't pull out a belt sander to work on my feet, but they were very kind and managed to make me look human again with only the normal pedi implements ;D I feel like a new woman.
That evening, Kirk and I attended a party that my buddy Chris threw in my honor for my birthday. Actually, I had to share the honor with our friend Alex who also had a birthday earlier in the month. I'm not really very good at sharing, but I let him bask in my limelight a wee bit out of courtesy...lol! What a sweet gal I am ;D
Sunday, Kirk and I spent most of the day at the Disc-It video shoot. Kirk was asked by the owner of the Disc-It company, here in Albuquerque, to shoot 2 cooking segments to promote the Disc-It. For those of you who are not familiar with the Disc-It, it is sort of like a round grill that uses propane, but instead of a grate to cook on, it actually has a large, round, wok-like cast iron pan. Anything that can be prepared on a grill or a stove top can be prepared on a Disc-It. I'll post the videos when they air, but for now, here's a couple of behind the scenes shots.
Kirk used his special BBQ Rub to season lambchops for one segment and then roasted shrimp using the same seasoning in the second segment. The photo above shows Kirk grilling up the remainder of the lambchops for some very hungry and impatient audience members...one of them being ME...lol! Kirk's spice company is Albukirky Seasonings and you can find his amazing BBQ Rub in his shop. Check out his blog for grilling tips and tricks.
Before I get any more off topic than I already am, let me tell you about my card. I used a fabulous Bombshell Stamps set called Rose's Portrait. I just received this in the mail a couple of days ago and could not wait to get her inky. I colored her with Copics using E13, E11, E00, and E000 to achieve a bit of a Latin skin tone. Everything else is pretty much standard fair, but I did add a crackle stamp to my sentiment and then coat it liberally with dimensional lacquer to make it really shiny. It might not be very noticeable in the photos, but in real like it looks very cool. If you have not checked out Bombshell Stamps, you must do so right this very minute! I'm not kidding! Their images are edgy and retro, lots of bombshells (of course!), hot rods, motorcycles, and Dia de los Muertos (my favorite!). Such a unique and fabulous selection.
I'm sure I'll see you soon with something new! Until then, stay crafty!
