Post Number 1001

w&w_rerun_logo
I don't usually look at my blog statistics, but the number 1000 caught my eye.  Hard to believe I'm starting onto my second thousand posts--that's a lot! So glad I finally listened to my friend, Rosemary, who encouraged me to begin blogging. What a world of friends it has opened up to me since February, 2012--I'm so grateful for that.

HEATHER'S CARD
Onto my card which was inspired by Heather's for Winnie & Walter Rerun No 12.  It immediately reminded me of my very old (1997) DeNami stamp. Last night I pulled it out & made a card not at all my usual, but I love it!  Isn't it great when that happens?!  The stars are also very old--Stampendous & Ann-ticipations.
After the gold embossing was done I smooshed Distress Inks squeezed lemonade, dusty concord & peacock feathers--drying after each color. I bought Michaels Ebony spray mist for splatters, but this time I held my breath & misted with it as well. Totally changed the look of the panel--so fun! I used a spellbinder die for the scallops & gold heat embossed the side of the card to match the images. 
My much loved W&W hello die is stacked 3 high & brushed with gold WOS which I got months ago & had not opened. Finished off with PPP gold metallic sequins which I just got--best $3 purchase ever!  I'm also entering SSS Monday, SSS Wednesday, CropStop, HLS Anything Goes with Dies, Stamplorations Theme & Sketch & Word Art Wednesday.  
Fritz & I are planning several walks today as our temps are supposed to be in the 80s instead of the 90s. Could even turn on the oven, so better get the apple/zucchini bread made I've been putting off. Thanks so much for taking time to stop by.
