Recently (and by that I mean like March lol) I was getting together a small package of a few crafty items that I wanted to share with Robin. Robin is my very first and oldest online friend. and by oldest I mean she's been my online friend the longest. I wouldn't dare hint as to her age. no,no, no. That would be bad, bad, bad for me lol. Any way I love her and we enjoy speaking to one another on the phone a few times a week and thru our crafty surprise mail. I think in this package I had a few duplicates that I loved so much I accidentally bought them twice. So I don't like to send a package without a card inside so this is the little card that I came up with to send along in this package.
I'm sorry, I'm not sure about the background paper. I believe its from Hobby Lobby and then I distressed the edges and added gesso to better define the distressed edges. I used a spellbinders die for the cut at the top left with the two friends. It's called Labels 22, for the sentiment cut I used a punch from Hobby Lobby by the Paper Studio for that. The stamps that I used was a pair that come together, they are by Dawn Houser for Inkadinkado. After die cutting the image I left it in the die and sponged around the inside of the die but not around the image because I wanted to color it. For the sentiment I just sponged around the punched piece. For the image I just got out my Prisma color pencils and colored up the image. I thought it worked out great and I was glad I used the pencils. I felt like the image was just too small for my coloring to use copics and do any shading. I used some flowers that I received in a gift package that I won from Lavish Laces over on the Little Scrap of Heaven ning site. I also won some of her fabulous laces and bloomers trims. I didn't use her ribbon for this card but I did use this fabulous one that I got from Hobby Lobby on a roll. I Just loved this card and I sure hope that Robin did too.
That's all I've got for now so until tomorrow, have a great day and a blessed day. May you be a special blessing to someone in need today. ttys, hugs, amy k
