I can't believe it's been almost a week since I stamped!! I made this card today for my senior friend, Miss Laura. A Rose In Winter is a favorite of mine. I haven't used this set to make a card for her so thought I would use it today. All papers are from SU- Basic Black, Whisper White and Bella Rosa DSP. The ink is all SU as well- Real Red, Riding Hood Red, Kiwi Kiss and Wild Wasabi, with the exception of the black ink which is Memento Tuxedo Black (you know- all this time and I never realized I was spelling Memento wrong! Oops!) The Notebook Paper stamp if from Cornish Heritage Farms.
Last Saturday I was supposed to go to a shoebox swap with the Meade Girls. Unfortunately, I wasn't feeling well and didn't go. Amanda sent me the card that she took to the swap- isn't it beautiful?! I believe that the set is Cheep Talk by SU, but I'm not totally sure. I LOVE the wide dotted ribbon that she used. I'll bet she bought that on one of the Meade Girls' ribbon runs!! Fabulous colors and fantastic layout! Thanks, Amanda, for thinking of me!! You're a doll!
Then, today in the mail I had a package from Tracy. She sent me a kit for the card that she took to the swap. What a cute card!!! The set is called Forest Friendzy by Cornish Heritage Farms. This was such a fun card to make!! When she made her sample card, she colored the sky and grass using Copics, but I don't have the right blue for the sky so I opted to sponge on the color using Bashful Blue for the sky and Old Olive for the grass. I think it came out cute! Tracy, thanks for being so sweet! The Meade Girls are the BEST!
