So, if this adage is true, Jennifer McGuire will feel pretty good should she happen upon my card. It wasn’t my intention to copy her card until I looked it up to make sure I had the technique down and realized I had to attempt a card as beautiful as hers.
Instructions not being my thing, I should probably let you read them on the Hero Arts site. I stamped the Friendship background stamp on Colonial White cardstock with Desert Sand ink and then stamped the Silhouette Meadow Flowers stamp on the background with VersaMark before embossing it with clear embossing powder. The flowers and leaves were filled in with inked up sponge daubers.
Materials & Tools: Colonial White and Moonstruck cardstock; Desert Sand, Crystal Blue, Moonstruck, Garden Green, Olive, and VersaMark ink pads; Hero Arts Friendship Background, Silhouette Meadow Flowers, and Anytime Messages stamp set; Button and Jute from my stash; Clear and white embossing powders; Embossing heat tool; Ecru crochet cotton; Sponge daubers; Edge Distressor.
How was your day? Mine was OK. Youngest son (30 in June) Dustin was here from the time he finished work at 5 until a few minutes ago. He’s considering a career change and had a two-hour, interactive “Day in the Life” thing to do and needed a computer with a faster connection than what he has living in the country. He also filled out an online job application before sitting down and visiting with his mom for a while. I so love that boy. He was the baby that smiled at the sound of my voice when he was only a couple of days old. “Oh, it’s just gas,” they told me. No, it was not. If I’d talk, he’d smile. We repeated the exchange several times before those around me finally realized that he was truly reacting to the sound of my voice. He’s been smiling ever since. Honest, ambitious, and incredibly funny, he inherited the best qualities of his dad and his two grandfathers. What did he inherit from me? A nasty cowlick in the same place as mine. Mathias has it, too. Nothing like passing on my finest features. LOL.
To answer Kari’s question from my last post, my large printer is currently parked at an angle on my computer desk and the file cabinet that sits next to it. Luckily, my scanner fit on the slide-out printer tray. The set up is not ideal but will work until I figure out what I want to do with my space.
For tonight, I’m off to bed. Thanks for stopping by. Have a great Wednesday!
