Thank You Card

Hi All,
I attended a scrapbook retreat on the last week of April. And sat next to a friend of mine who is a Stampin' Up Rep. As I watch her create all these cute cards by stamping her images and then coloring them. I felt inspired to use my stamps in a different way. I know this is nothing new to all you stampers but here I am a crafter who does not stamp a whole lot or even had second thought as to coloring them. So I wanted to give a big shout out to one of my crafting sisters "Adriana" for getting me to think outside the box.  I made this card and it on it way to you. I hope you like it.

Your Absolutely Fabulous Card

Hi All,
I don't know about all of you but we have had some crazy weather here in Irvine. One day it's 90 degrees and then two days later it's pouring raining..... I guess I should be glad that we do not have snow storms like my friends in Minnesota.

In any case today's post is a simple card using a Hero Art rubber stamp. I know that most of you are into   purchasing cling stamps but I just love the wood block stamps.  I just wish that I had not invested so much in the cling stamps. Because over time they eventually lose their shape.
