I thought this card turned out really special ... but then it is for a special friend, so how could I go wrong. I actually made it a week ago and was waiting to hear that she got it before I would post it - then had to go hunting all over my computer for the image. Found it in the trash ... found a LOT of stuff in the trash, I guess I never empty it. Kind of like a mini gallery of where I've been.
There are 3 layers of different color chalk pad leaves behind the tree which is then spritzed with one of those glimmer sprays ... looks better in real life. I love the patterned paper - may have to go back to the scrapbook store for more but LAST time I set foot in the scrapbook store, I came home lugging a big ol' Big Shot.
You can expect to see more die cuts in the future! Just discovered it can cut ... coasters, pop cans and bubble wrap. Hmmmm. What can I try next!
Not sure when I will get a card made and posted, but here is the Wednesday sketch. I am off to Lansing to drop off Mike and his bike, he is going on a 300 mile ride this weekend. I can think of things I would rather do, so I am totally OK with being left behind in my dry stamp room ( biking that far is bad enough, but he is expecting rain 3 of the 5 days! )
I won the doorprize, a big gift bag. Kind of pretty! My favorite card of the night was the coffee/tea card, might be nice to cheer someone's day.
The gal who showed the shutter card was a new demo, I think. She was so excited over crimping and smearing with black. Not my favorite technique. The fabric flower is on a pin so you can take it off and put it on your favorite ... um ... bulletin board? The new colors were fun to play with, and it was a nice evening out with friends.
Here is a direct quote from Donna C but I love the sentiment and can't say it any better than she did ...
