The first card uses the "layered background" techqnique that Shari Carroll described in her post at the Hero Arts blog today. I first stamped the Friend Definition using Punch chalk ink, then I stamped the Large Canvas Stripes using Soft Rose shadow ink. On a separate paper I embossed the typewriter and cut it out, shading it in with Spun Sugar distress ink. The sentiment is from the clear "Birthday Messages" set.
Materials Used: (CG125) Friend Definition, (S5433) Large Canvas Stripes, (CG280) My Type,

The next card is a birthday card using a latte note card with the Classic Fabric Design stamped in Latte chalk ink. Pretty simple...

I also have to take a moment to say a very special THANK YOU to the wonderful Patricia Rey (aka Scrapflower) who designed a beautiful new blog banner for me. Isn't she super talented? What a sweetheart she is...she did the same for Heather Maria and when I complimented her work at Heather's blog she went and made me one, too. Now THAT is sweet! Thanks again, Patricia!
Happy first day of March, everyone. Let's hope it goes out like a lamb...I'm ready for Spring!
Thanks for stopping by!
