A Thank you and the card that brought rain....

As I mentioned previously, I have been the coordinator for the swaps that we do as part of the SU team, The Artful Stampers, that I belong to. On Friday all the swaps were in, sorted and sent back out to all the participants. I like to make them a little thank you for playing in the swap and this is the card I came up with for this group:It's pretty simple and I whipped up 5 of these in less than an hour!!! Seriously, it was that easy. I had to do it quickly, because I had forgotten to make them with everything that was going on, and I felt bad not sending one with the returned swaps.

For this card I used the 'Live Your Dream' set that we got at Regionals and inked up the flower image with Mellow Moss, So Saffron and Pretty in Pink markers. I then stamped the gorgeous little butterfly and the Thanks sentiment in Pretty in Pink all onto Whisper White CS and mounted it on a layer of Pretty in Pink. I tied around some Pink narrow grosgrain ribbon and mounted that panel with Dimensionals onto the card base. For the base I used So Saffron layered with some gorgeous DSP from 'Spring Flowers'...the Pink floral and the Saffron spots are the same sheet, just reverse sides, so it was easy just to cut out the panel then cut it at 5cm to have both sides showing.

I STILL haven't made anything new to show you, so tomorrow I will be showing you the card that I made for the swap :)

In other news you may remember the Hanna Rain Days card from this post. I made it for my best friend who needed some rain....well the card brought it!!! I didn't get it into the post until Friday (yes I'm a slacker!) and she called me yesterday to say that she had gotten the slightly soggy card out of her mailbox in the rain! The first rain that they'd had in ages. She thought it was completely hilarious and knew that I would too...but now she wants me to send her one everyday for the next two weeks :) So, if any of you are in desperate need of rain I don't actually need to be there in person....a Rain Day card does the trick just as well, just let me know and I'll make you one too...LMBO!!!

It's actually raining here today :( and it's making me feel lazy and I'm procrastinating about all the work I have to I'm off to give myself a stern talking to and try and get something accomplished.

Hope you are having a nicer day wherever you are,

now see...HERE is one of those rare examples of how we are NOT AT ALL eerily alike: you can TOTALLY think like a brilliant stamper...and i soooo cannot!!!

i absolutely adore everything about this, but the very *verrrrrry* best part is the way you have used the one stamp WITH SEVERAL INK COLORS!

(yep...'cause you were thinkin' like a brilliant stamper...uh huh!)
