It's Margaret guys! I'm here this weekend to share a few creations I made in my art room this weekend. My older daughter is hosting a surprise birthday party for her friend with other friends which got me and Claudia in the art room for a few hours--our favorite thing to do on the weekends.
Today, I made a card for one of our program assistants at work, who fell walking to her car and broke her ankle in several places. Pretty severe--was hospitalized for about a week. So we are all signing a card for her and I thought this would be a personal touch.
Kathy and I have been talking about using our stash...so I found this OLD stamp set in my drawers that I have never usedbut purchased about 4 or 5 years ago. I cut the flowers and bird apart and layered and popped them up with foam tape. I also included a closeup of the butterfly which is qhite sparkly but you can't tell from the photo. I recently purchased a few of the new ink pads from Stampin Up which I used to stamp the bottom left flower. Oh my! I love them! Very sticky and great coverage. I was impressed. The upper flower was inked with the older version of the SU ink...can't you see the difference?
Well thanks for stopping by! Tomorrow I will be back with another fun card. Enjoy the rest of your Saturday. ~Margaret
