Selfies are kind of difficult when one of you is 5'6" & the other is 6'5"!! This is the best I could do to capture our 37th anniversary. He loved his card ("You should enter this one in a contest") & he gave me a gorgeous card with pink & roses--guess he knows me--haha!
I'm getting ready to visit family out of state. Hubby & Fritz will hold down the fort. I'll probably get behind on reading blogs, but will catch up with you when I get back. I've been admiring lots of Concord & 9th products.
Luckily, my friend, Barb, sent me some of their die cuts recently so I made a card for Ellen Hutson Mix It Up. I used Bristol paper so I could use a Zig. By blending with a waterbrush the red marker goes from light pink to red. The flowers are covered with wink of Stella & embellished with one of the dots I won at The Playground, where I'm also entering my card. The same red marker colored the mat. I clear embossed the stacked sentiment from Ellen Hutson. This turned out to be one of my favorite cards! I'm also entering SSS Wednesday.
Next is my hydrangea card, even though I don't have a hydrangea stamp or die! Thanks to Karen D's inspiration, I tried out the technique of putting some petals on watercolor paper & running it through my die cut machine.
Decided against adding color to it--afraid it'd be ruined. Just added a few purple splatters & some Nuvo dots. I cut it out with my new MFT oval & added the SSS die cut sentiment which is cut from green cardstock with a purple shadow. This time I used the Spectrum Noir clear sparkle pen for shimmer. Thought the old Cuttlebug swirls embossing folder made a nice background. I'm entering SSS Flickr #53 & Die Cut Divas. Thanks so much for taking time to stop by.
