Hey everyone!  Sorry for the long time between updates.  Life is just crazy busy right now.  This card is just a little something I whipped up playing with a new technique I learned at a Copics class.  You color on the stamp with your Copic markers and then mist with blending solution and stamp.  Kinda reminds me of a watercolored look a bit. 

Anyway, mostly SU materials, cardstock, ribbon, stamps, etc.  And some new Nesties that I ordered.  Abstract rectangles I think they are called.  I apologize for the bad picture.  I was just too lazy to drag out the DSLR today, LOL.  I obviously need a new P&S. 

More later, amigos!

Is is spring yet?

This winter has been a tough one.  Record breaking snow falls, bitter cold for weeks, $400 electric bills, etc.  But it finally feels like spring might show up after all.  It was 74 degrees today and the sun was shining.  My daffodils are bustin' out all over and the tulips are sprouting too.  Redbuds are budding and my eyes are itching.  All good signs of better weather to come. 

So I couldn't wait to dig into bright, cheerful colors.  And what better to signify spring than flowers?  Lily of the Valley have nothing to do with this card, but they are my favorite flower, so I decided to use them to set the stage for my blog hop entry. 

All supplies are PTI.

Cardstock:  Stamper Select white, Lemon Tart, Hibiscus Burst, Hawaiian Shore, Vellum

Ink:  New Leaf and Hibiscus Burst

Ribbon:  Lemon Tart Dots

Buttons:  Lemon Tart and Hibiscus Burst

Dies:  Beautiful Blooms II and Picnic Plaid Embossing Plate

I feel like spring has sprung.  At least until tomorrow when they claim we have a chance of snow showers, LOL. 

Later gators!  I'm off to make dinner and arrange a playdate.
