I have a dear dear friend Debbie who is an old High-school friend and we keep in touch regularly by mail. Letter writing anymore is something of the past, I think? With so many computers, email and social media most of us are hung up on that form of communication most generally? However, Debbie works full time and has no home computer. So writing a note and sending a card is our only option.
As you very well may have figured out.... I recently sent this card in the mail to Debbie with a little note to catch up. I enjoyed fussing with this old stamp of the sweet little girl standing at the oceans edge. I really don't know the name of the stamp as it's not a stamp I own? You may notice that there are two separate stamp sets here. The sand and bushes below are of an another stamp. I happened to pick it up that particular stamp at crafting garage sale for $2.00. The only marking on the stamp says: Arizona Stamp Pad -copyright?
I lightly colored the card with some colored pencils and used some Ira-decent Stickles and some pink liquid pearls to outline her dress. I then added a row of lace to her dress to help give it a more dimensional look. I also used this new Spellbinders die I recently bought called "Fantastic Flourish Two" and attached it to the left corner while attaching a brad. I also picked up those sweet little sea shell die cuts while at a craft store in the area where I live. The die cut punch is from Impression Obsession called Mini Shell Set DIE 76-E
For those of you who may have noticed, I signed my name to the right bottom side of the card. That is something I never do. Sign the front! This card seemed to call for it? Yes I do always put some form of signature to the back of my cards. I also use a computer program that makes special labels that I attach to each of my cards with my name and blogs name on it in-case the recipient would like to view more of my work? That's all for this week ladies....
I hope you enjoyed stopping by today? I enjoyed having you. Please come back soon?
