Copyright Stampin' Up!
So ... I finally did it. Got out the stamps and supplies and made a few cards yesterday. What a great feeling. There's just something wonderful that happens when you create a beautiful card from a piece of a paper, some stamps, ink, and a few embellishments. I know, I know ... the DSP is retired, kind of like being laid off ... but just because it's retired doesn't mean I don't like it or don't want to use it. Kinda like me.... I took Patty Bennett's watercoloring idea, only used the Whisper White card stock. Because it's not coated like the Shimmery White, you have to use the water sparingly and work fast ... kinda do a light wash over the entire rose and then come back in with your darker colors. I thought it turned out pretty. The real test is to put it on your desk, at night, and then look at it the first thing in the morning when you get up. If it still looks as pretty as you thought it did the night before, then that's the true test of a great card!
Bought some tomato plants today and some Weed and Feed. Looks like it's time for me to get outside to do some yard work. Ugh ... I'd rather be stamping.
Got a big day planned tomorrow. Have a great one!
I've got a GREAT recipe for Fried Chicken and Biscuits and Gravy. Made it tonight and it's a heart attack waiting to happen. I'll share the recipe later.
