STAMP ON!!!

Tuesday, January 15, 2008

So I lied...I have 3 posts tonight!!!

I was reading my INKredible Impressions forum from my lovely up-up-up-lineTina - and on it the gals talked about sending our Queen Mother of SU, Shelli Gardner, sympathy cards, as her mother, a fellow stamper, passed from this life right before the holidays. Since I felt such an ache for her and her family - I had to send one, too, even though mine will be later than my inky sisters....but OMG - WHAT do you send The Queen Mother? So I said - "dope, this ain't about you - so shut up and stamp!". So I did...I did not take a picture of Shelli's card, but I made the following card I have posted for my girlfriend Maura's birthday - made one for Shelli and made some extra because I loved it so much...I really feel like divine intervention was a-goin' on, as when I rely on my own self for a creation, it takes me FOREVER to move this, add this, remove that, change the color, and on and on..until I can't really decide if I like what I made or not... but this time, I just loved the card outright...scared myself a bit ... So hopefully, this card has done its duty for all... Here are the two versions...

I love these cards! The colour are gorgeous, warm but not dull.
BTW,I know what you mean about decorative scissors, start cutting a postcard and end up with a postage stamp!!
