Stamped with Memento in Tuxedo Black then colored with various Copic Markers

Printed Papers - Simple Stories Fab{u}lous

Twine - The Twinery



Well then Today (this actually being on Wednesday) work was a hurry-up-and-wait kind of day and since I work for myself out of my house, I decided to give my work brain a break and drag out my crafty brain... so much happier with this one!

Zero Printed Paper... I think I'm just a grungy kind of girl

Woodgrain Stamp - Unity Stamp Co. 1/14 KOM Be Your Own Kind of Beautiful

Stamped with CloseToMyHeart in Brown Bag, Bamboo & Chocolate (chocolate is actually on the cardbase only)



Dragonflies - Unity Stamp Co. 9/13 KOM Happiness Has No Limit

Stamped with Memento in Tuxedo Black & colored with various Copic Markers

using Yes Paste (love this stuff) I affixed the bling flowers & tiny beads

Sentiment Stamp - Unity Stamp Co. 9/12 KOM the Vintage Touch

Sprayed it all using Shimmerz Paints in Heavy Metal

  25. I love both cards, but I REALLY love the dragonfly one (you know how I am a bit partial to insects) - it ROCKS THE HOUSE! Love the insects, of course, but also how you used the background woodgrain stamp. AWESOMENESS!!!
