Lynette and an Important Announcement

Before I get to the card, I wanted to let all of you know that I am leaving town around noon tomorrow (Sunday), and will not return until Friday evening, May 28. Unfortunately, I'm in for a whole week of classes ending with a test on Friday. Ugh! Not fun, but quite necessary in order to keep my certification current for my *real* job.

All orders placed before I leave will ship on Monday. Those placed after that will be shipped as soon as I return. Thanks in advance for your understanding.

This adorable image is from Sarah Kay, and is called Lynette Collecting Her Vegetables . I stamped it on watercolor paper using Onyx Black Versafine ink, then embossed with JudiKins Detail Clear embossing powder. The image was colored using Tombow Markers and a damp paint brush to blend.

I sponged around the top of the card using Tumbled Glass Distress Ink .

The designer paper is from the Cosmo Cricket Garden Variety 6 x 6 paper pad. I used my Ric Rac Diamond Borderability from Spellbinders to make the red and green borders around the band in the center. I added a tiny red button to the corner and threaded it with Green Burlap String .

I plan to have a couple of posts scheduled while I'm away, so it won't seem like I'm really gone! :) Thanks so much for stopping by today.

Lynette is just adorable! I love that big bow on her hat! The DP is perfect for this great image and I love what you've done with those corners!
Have a safe trip and hurry back!!
