Thinking Of You!


Happy Wednesday, hope you're having a great week so far!  Today I have a really quick card to share with you.  We've had a super strange winter/spring this year, so I guess I've been really wanting it to be spring and stay spring.  In the SF Bay Area, we just aren't used to 80 degree weather and then the next day hailing peas!  I think that's why I was so drawn to a "springy" card!


I'm going to try to explain how I made the pink layer.  I had two small squares of the pink paper, not big enough for MCT tag die.  On the lower pink piece I ran it through my big shot three times using the side of my journaling die.  Then for the top pink piece I ran it through two on paralleling sides, then used my MCT stitched curly die to create the top knot.  Only you and I know that the pink piece isn't one complete piece. :)


I stamped the PKS watering can on vellum with stazon ink, then carefully cut it out,  and did the same thing for the flowers after coloring with copic markers.  Of course no card of mine would be complete without a bit bling!
