SPRING

Hi. Rick is doing well today. Pain meds knock him out, but rest is good. I came down with a cold though, so we were both out of it today. I'm glad I made up a couple of cards ahead of time or I wouldn't be posting much. Today's card is by Serendipity Stamps. I love Pussywillows. I stamped in dark brown on smooth white cardstock and just went over the stems with a dark brown marker and highlighted the pussywillows with a white gel pen. The cardstock is from a paper pack called The Chocolate Box by core'dinations. All of the sheets in the pack are a shade of brown on one side and varied colors on the other side. I made the card with a piece that was green on one side and a dark chocolate brown on the other. I then sanded the front of the card to let some of the green show through. It is a bit messy, and it didn't sand off easily like I though it would. I used a piece of the green side to mount the stamped image to. I distressed the edges by running the sissors along the edge. Thanks for stopping in for a look. Until later....
