Okay, I am finished now, thanks to all who have stopped by so far with your kind comments!!


I have stamped the incredibly cute Kaydance, designed for we Whimsy lovers by Elisabeth Bell with Archival Ink and painted her with my distress ink pads. I've used the super fun Spell It Out sentiment set by Raindrop Echo Designs to add a most appropriate "Howdy" to the card. I also had the distinct pleasure of playing with our newly released Double Scalloped Square Doily Die, which I am loving!! The perfect size for my preferred card size and we have several different design options with it, so what I did was ran one layer of kraft paper through my Cuttlebug, then put my image through as well, trimmed off the excess and then threaded through the decorative holes, love it!!


The papers are all My Minds Eye, flowers, laces and other trims are all from the ever-growing stash!!
Distressing was done with Walnut Stain and the insides of a pair of scissors.


When I started painting, I was just plucking up colours wondering how in the world it was all going to come together, so as the assembly process began, I was tickled to see how "planned" this looks!! You wont hear me brag about my cards all too often, but I think this one turned out lovely!!

hugs, stephanne
