Ugh... Monday ('nuff said)


I am sooooooo tired this morning... I stayed up way too late last night watching movies ;)  So there will not be any witty repartee on my part today!

A cute and simple card today.  No big frills, but just enough to make it interesting... even though there is no Stickles again (gasp!).



Stamps:  Birdcage (retiring soon!), Trendy Greetings, Build-a-Background (Hostess Level A), Fabulous Frames (coming in Feb!)
Paper:  Lilly Anna SWIC; Lilly Anna & white UltraSmooth cardstocks
Ink: Noir & Beaux Arts Blue Palettes, VersaMark
Colorant:  Prismacolors w/ mineral oil (not spirits!)

Other:  Nestabilities Labels One, White Scrapper's Floss, Cloud Scissors, button, & cotton twill


I used my WOSFF(web-o-sphere friend forever) Laurie's ruffle trick with the Scor-Pal & cloud scissors... pretty nice touch, no?  I stamped the heart background with VM before sponging the blue... the ink really makes the hearts pop.


 What do you think?

great card! I'm going to be so tired tomorrow as my sleeping schedule is all out of whack! I've been staying up well past 1:30AM and sleeping in...no more starting tomorrow. GIVE ME STRENGTH! Love the sponging of the blue on top of your card!
