I cannot believe that we are in February already, my oldest DD is choosing classes for HIGH SCHOOL next year, getting ready for taxes, and thinking spring. We have birthdays galore over the next few months and my sister and I are getting things together for our big vendor fair in April. Whew- I am tired already!
The weather here today in PA, ice, ice and more ice. It is now melting like crazy- however, I am hoping that the arborvetae surrounding the property recover. They look like such sad little creatures, all bent over, like the weight of the world is on their shoulders. 8 foot 'trees' now bent to about 4 feet....... so, another day off from school: kids are reading, playing games, and I am crafting!
This card was so much fun to make! Kristen, my wonderful generous sister, lent me this Poppy Stamp from Hero Arts, and I am in love! Coloring in with pencils, using copics to blend- pop dotting and glitter, oh my! She also made this fabulous crinkled ribbon- lettuce green is the color. She is running at Etsy sale on all of her colored seam binding ribbon- check it out http://www.scrapinkris.blogspot.com/, to get to her store.....
I made my own background paper, using a Teresa Collins stamp, harlequin diamonds, stamping tone on tone in blush ink. Kraft paper for matting, green and pink cardstock from CTMH. Misc heart button, nylon string, and prisma glitter, pink stickles, doodlebug glitter brads round out the embellishments factors on this card.
