Birthday card

 I saw this card on someone's blog (sorry can't remember whose) and thought it would be a nice card to make for my hostess club.  They really like it and it was fairly easy to do.  The hardest part was cutting the flower out and I had that all cut out for them.

Thumping Technique

 I used the Thumping Technique on this card.  I have two marker clubs and we made this card using a marker.  It's very simple.  You get a bold image and stamp it in a light color, then you take a marker in a darker color.  For this card I used yo yo yellow ink pad and only orange marker.  Once the image is stamped in the yoyo yellow you take your only orange marker and thump on the image that still has the yellow on it.  You tap it like you would a drum stick.  Then you stamp the image and voila a nice two ink image.

I'm Back!!

Hello Everyone!!  Sorry that I have been away for so long.  First I had computer problems, but I think all those problems are fixed now.  Then was having camera problems, but got a new one.  Then I was away for a week on vacation. Then my sister was having some health problems and thought I was gonna go home (Texas) for a while, but did not have to go.  Now, I think I am here for a while again so I should be posting more often.   

I hope I did not lose people coming to my blog because of my long absence.  So, please tell everyone I am back and should be posting more often. 

Friend Framed Art

Today I helped Darnell make this Framed Art for a friend of hers.  We used the following cardstock: so saffron, taken with teal and chocolate chip. We also used the Sweet Pea paper from the Occasions mini catalog.
