Shimmery CAS Thank You

I try not to miss the SSS Flickr challenges & finally got something made just in time. One Layer cards are challenging for me so I went with my tried & true technique of masking an area for sponging.  This time I used Distress Inks peacock feathers & evergreen bough.  The sweet images from my new SSS stamp set called Hello Friends were stamped in the same 2 inks & brushed with Perfect Pearls.  The tape was removed & the sentiment from the same set was stamped in Memento Gray Flannel.  I added Stickles to the dots & sentiment & added some white dots with my gel pen. This is a late Christmas thank you, so gotta get it in the mail. I'm also entering at ATSM & a new challenge called Paru's Card Making Challenges.

Wanted to also share my wonderful retirement cards from blogging friends.  I feel so blessed to have all of you in my life--thanks for visiting!
