Love Is...


I just adore the warm and cozy looking sweater in the Warm and Wonderful stamp set. For this card I wanted to create a loose fiber like texture to the sweater. After I stamped it, I sponged the sweater with Soft Sky ink, and then went over it with a brillo-like metal fiber inked with Blue Bayou ink to create the loose fiber like look.

I have another special surprise to share..I am part of a great book group over on STV and we recently had a book swap for Christmas. We called it A Tale of Two Hobbies because we are combining two great hobbies we love: stamping/reading! Well, my gift arrived last week and my Secret Sis spoiled me something terrible (which I love!!!) Here is a picture of what she sent...



And take a look at this gorgeous card! Love pink and brown.... :o)

And who was she? Why none other than Tina Gilliland. Thanks so much Tina, you are just the bestest! If you enjoy books and stamping...we would love you to join us over on Stamp TV, you can find a link HERE.
Thanks so much for stopping by and have a wonderful day!
Blessings,
