Hi all!! I hope everyone is having a fabulous week - I have been very busy stamping away so I say that counts as fabulous, LOL!!! I wanted to share a birthday card I recently made for a friend, it's got her fave colors of green and yellow and it turned our very springy!!! She loved it, which made me happy!!! I used a new set from the Occasions Mini Catty called Messages for Mom and I love all the different things you can do with this!!! The Patterned Paper is also from the Occasions Mini and is called Shades of Spring - absolutely gorgeous paper, the pic in the book does NOT do it justice!! I had lots of fun with the main image: I first stamped it in Black Craft Ink, heat embossed it with clear powder, colored it in with my SU! markers, covered it in Versamark, then embossed it again with Iridescent Ice powder. Whew!! Lots of steps but well worth it since it came out sooooo sparkly!!
Here is a close-up of the image so you can see! Now, I am off to the post office to mail off some swaps and then it's back to the stamp room to prep for my workshop!!! I love my job - does everyone have this much fun at work?? I think not *wink* Have a wonderful day all and thanks so much for stopping by, your comments mean a lot to me!!!
