Nuts About You!

What a weekend! I've had Internet problems since Friday night. And believe me...that is NOT a good thing when you own an Internet store! BUT...the good news is that it's fixed now, and life can go on. Whew! I was SUPER STRESSED!

With everything else going on I didn't get to stamp much this weekend, but I did make this cute little card. I can't take credit for the layout...I totally cased it from a card I saw in the Hero catalog.

All stamps are from the Trees, Birds & Messages Clear Design stamp set.
The main images were stamped on watercolor paper using Onyx Black Versafine ink, then embossed with JudiKins Detail Clear embossing powder. The stamped images were colored with Tombow markers.

For the *grass* I used torn paper and inked the edges with a little darker shade of green. There is a row of paper piercing on the right side just for added interest. I really wanted to add ribbon...or something else. But I finally decided to stop while I was ahead. KWIM?

The designer paper is from the Memory Box Sugar Collection .

I'm off to make dinner and have a little glass of vino while I watch Desperate Housewives. Maybe that will help with the unwinding that I really need right now! :-)

Thanks for stopping by....I appreciate each and every one of you.
