I just heard


Hello good morning :-) gosh.. the tile of my card is "i just heard" it is so funny... it matches what i wanted to tell you about. My friend Kristine has told me 2 days ago that she is going to leave the Friday Sketcher blog. Iam very very sad about that. Not only because Kristine is a long time friend of mine - also because her wonderful creative cards. She has done sooo much for us.. the new blog layout - everything was done by her! Thank you sweetie! So we all chatted these days a lot what we would like to do and we have decided to have a GDT call tomorrow up on the Friday Sketcher blog. If you have a blog and you feel like you can contribute each week a nice card and come up eventually with a sketch - we would love to see your artwork! More information will be up on the Friday Sketcher blog tomorrow.

Now back to my card.. i have made it about 2 weeks ago before i had my new Chasing Butterfly stamps in.. i thougt what a cute image to make a card just with yellow, black and white colors. I was than getting so busy with my new stamps that i had no time to come up to in cooperate tearing, sewing and distressing on one card for Cute Card Thursday - just sewing it had to be :-) . This time i have used my Golden Wheat paint from Shimmerz , to paint the yellow prima flowers sparkly. This paint is wonderful.. the flowers are kind of fuzzy and i sort of expected the paint to be sucked in.. but nothing.. it stayed right there and once it was dry it still shimmered so pretty.


This is the inside of my card.. I think this is only my second card i have made so far where i have colored a second image in for the inside. It does look nice but boy it is quite some extra work :-)

Embellishments: Shimmerz paint in Golden Wheat, Stampin up hardware silver hodgepodge, Making Memories button, Chocolate Chip Inkpad, Stampin up "so Saffron" ribbon
Tools: Nestabilities (Large deckled Rectangles, large Circle set/scalloped and plain) Cuttlebug Embossing folder
Paper/Cardstock: all by Stampin up, white and black
