Elements of Style

This card was a lot of fun. As you can see I have the two tone ink on the image. I used the marker to stamp method, and after the first couple of cards (I had to make 19) it was not hard to see where to put the pink versus the green. Remember to always start with the lightest colour first to prevent contamination to your markers.

Just believe!

This was the second group of "nature" stamp sets. I chose Just believe. What I love about this verse is that it is my favorite at Christmas time with all my Santa stamps. How many times did your parents tell you if you believe you will get a present from Santa? And we all kept believing well into our 20's?

This was an interpretation from our Mega swap meeting for our SU group. Thanks for the inspiration!

I've read it, have you?

Our most recent ATC theme was called "Dark Love". I wish I had found this in time for that swap.

One of the trendy books this summer is Fifty Shades of Grey. You may not have read it, but I am sure you heard of it! The discussions around this book usually reference the steamy intimate moments of this couple. However, if you manage to get through all three volumes, as I did, you will see that there really is a story beyond that.

Of course, if you are looking for is a fantasy interlude, well, that works too. I just couldn't help myself when I saw this stamp. It is a digital art stamp, created by Krista Smith of Saturated Canary. I saw it, and immediately bought it!

As I was long overdue with an Anniversary card for my hubby, I thought, why not. He didn't read the book!

Just so you can see, there is a heart and a key charm attached.
The heart says "made with love"

And the inside, "Everything you do is Magic"

Wish me a great night!
