I am so sorry that this photo is not as clear as it should be. i just couldn't get a good shot of it. It was a dreary day here in New York and the little bit of sunshine that filters into my dungeon was absent. ( I just can't wait to move out of the basement...but then I'll be up on the third floor of my house. this subject can be it's own post! lol!)
This is a card that i made for my niece, Christie who is now 22 years old. I missed her birthday when I was in California visiting my son. So today I wanted to take a little time and make her a card. I wanted to use one of my new images from the American Art Stamp co...and I actually had another image in mind but couldn't resist working with this one. I'm still not sure if I am as in love with this as I thought that i would be. I was totally attracted to this image, but it is so out of my comfort zone. I started with all different colors and then I came across this dp from K & Company that was so pretty (still new and unused) and decided to use that. That meant that i had to throw away the first stamped image that i had colored in. Hey, it's just paper, right? lol! So here it is...a totally different card than I had intended to make. I'm still not sure that i'm loving it...but since I'm so belated to begin with I had just better mail this out!
Thanks for the visit.
Smiles :)
