Woohoo....spring has made it to Missouri! Looking a bit like a storm outside now, but I had the top down on the little car today, and OMG it felt so nice!
Well, I needed a card for someone special. I'm a card angel for a lady with cancer, and I wanted to make something bright and perky that looked like spring. The challenge at the Impression Obsession Blog this week is "Spring is in the Air", so I got out some I-O stamps, and here's what happened...
|Supplies: Cardstock, a muse, DP Echo Park Victoria Gardens, Colorbok Black CS, Coloring with Copics, Flower Soft, Stamps: Impression Obsession "Decorate the Season Fence" (G8614) and "Joyful Spring" (B5428), misc. flowers from my stash.|
|This is the inside of the card. You can barely see a flower peeking at you on the left. There are three flowers on that panel, actually, covering three very nice ink smdges. Bwahahaha....happens to the best of us!|
Don't you just LOVE that dotted background? I ordered a couple of items from my friend, Shirley, who is an a muse demonstrator. And free with my order was an adorable set of note cards! Yup, a rainbow of dots! So you will be seeing spots for a long while...just sayin'.
Hope that you have all had a nice day! Some of you had contacted me that you'd like to do an RAK for our DD, whose DH was deployed three weeks after their wedding. I'm sorry, but there were several of you, and except for a couple of you, I don't recall who wanted some 'ideas'. If any of you still do want ideas, or addresses, I have some now, so feel free to email me. Thank you from the bottom of my heart to those who have sent cards, emails, or commented on her blog posts. (If you want to read a heart wrenching entry, go to Melissa's blog, Marrying the Army, and read the post about the USPS losing her mail from Afghanistan.) She is so touched that my friends think enough of me and of her to send a handmade card. We both thank you so much!
Have a wonderful evening!
Hugs and smiles,
