Wishing you........



Hi,
Hey thanks for your nice comments on You Raise me Up!! Oh, now I'm worried, Walshie liked that one too - you might not like the one I picked !! Friday it's up here.

So this is the first card made for my Sketch Challenge on Stamp TV! I liked the layout of this card and will use it again soon. What I wasn't happy about is the image. Oh I love the image but not as I stamped it. Too much white here I think this layout needed more.
  • Stamps: GKD Many Wishes
  • Paper : GKD Pure Luxury Soft Sand, Bazzill, Kaiserscrapbook - Rustic Charms.
  • Ink: Versa Color - Sky Grey
  • Birds and Swirls Cuttlebug Embossing Folder,SU Lace punch, gold swirl and gross grain ribbon.
Guess who received her new JustRite Stamps on Monday!! I just had to have a play.
Kathy gave me some tips to get a good image from the rubber so I did as she said and cleaned any residue from the stamp then gave it a light rub with 2 emery boards the 2nd one was very fine. Now the ink I used was Martha Stewart and quite pale so I wasn't really supprised when the 1st try did'nt work too well. Here is the card I made (very quickly) with my second try. I didn't think it was too bad at all. What do you think?





Not the best picture the sun hadn't quite made this end of the house sorry about that!

Till tomorrow............
