A bit more productive...



Tonight the girls (Diana, Jamie) and I headed over to Kelly's place to stamp. A great night and I actually got 2 cards done tonight! A lot less chatting than the night before, but a great night. Tonight was the first time I'd met Jamie, a friend of Diana's, she's very nice and a wonderful scrapbooker and cardmaker. We didn't make it as late if a night, as I have to work early in the morning again, and wanted to get home to quickly post my creations and off to sleep. Yeah, well a little detour. I hadn't quite finished the 2nd card at Kelly's, but all the way home it bothered me that I hadn't finished it, so I came home and quickly watercoloured the flower and cut it out. Yeah, I still need to practice watercolouring with these new watercolour pens, so far I'm just not happy with them. Plus, the fact that I forgot to use the watercolour paper...oops...hense the bleeding of the ink. I'm sure I'll end up doing the flower over again and fixing the card, anyway this is what I came up with tonight.



I also received this card in the mail today from Toni Whitnell. She does simply amazing work and it's always a pleasure to get one of her cards in the mail. This one was actually a giveaway she had done on her blog and I won! :) Check out her site for some wonderful inspiration! This card is basically like the card that I CASE'd off of Tracy a few posts back, but Toni didn't use a closure. I really like it both ways. I kinda wondered if a person wasn't a cardmaker, aware of that style of card, would they know to un-do the ribbon. I probably wouldn't have... lol :)

Time to call it a day, gonna be a long day tomorrow. I'll likely get back into my craft room on Thursday night, so until then...

Thanks for stopping by!
