Saturday

Wow, it’s been awhile!

I can’t believe it’s been that long since I last posted!  I am not even going to make any excuses, I just took a little break from stamping, my muse took off on my for a while.  Anyway, I am back now.

This is the birthday card I made for my great friend Val!  It was Val’s party this evening, I stopped out long enough to say Happy Birthday and give her this card! lol…I am not much into crowds, I get right freaked out!

The main image is from Stampsmith.  Marilyn is stamped with Ancient Page Chocolate Brown, then coloured in using a water colouring brush and tombow markers.  I then used Tim Holtz Distress inks to make it look older.  The beautiful flourish is from Inkadinkado.  The sentiment is from SU.  The crochet flower is from April, who is making them for me!  They are just adorable, thank you April!  Pearls are from Kaiser Craft.

Thank you for stopping by tonight.  I hope you are all having a beautiful weekend!

Okay Kim, you are officially the queen of embellishments. If I put a crocheted flower on my card, it would look like Granny Goodwitch made it. You do it and it looks sensational. lol Great card!
