Hello Card

Hi everyone! Hope your week starts out good and continues that way too!

Today I want to share an easy card that I made. My friend Linda (Hi Linda!!) came over last Friday after we had gone out for our monthly breakfast date. She's asked me a number of times to come and see how I make a card, so I shoveled out the dirt and dog hair in the house and said "come on over". I recently got this stamp and it was out on my table, so I grabbed it and a few markers and this is what I stamped. Than I sprayed some homemade glimmer mist on it, of course you can't see that in the picture but we could! Than I showed her how to sponge around the edges to add more color to the front. I asked her if she wanted to try and she said no...I'm going to work on her and have her come back and teach her how to have fun! I told her that later I would do something with it, and here is the card that I came up with. I used a piece of seam binding leftover from another card, just enough to make this pretty bow for the front of the card. Ran some Marina Mist thru the tulip embossing folder and added to Pear Pizzazz behind the stamped image. I colored in the stamp with Marina Mist, Pear Pizzazz and Early Espresso.

All products used were Stampin' Up!.

Thanks to stopping in to see me, would love to hear from you, have a great week! Mary

What a pretty and cheerful card! See, she probably doesn't want to try it because once you do, you're hooked!!! You'll convert her yet! :)
