Happy Friday! I didn't think I was going to be able to sit and chat with you today but I have an open window of time that I'm taking full advantage of. I've had my Taxi Mom hat on today. I'm pretty glad to see Friday. This means only a few more days and I'm on a plane heading to Salt Lake for Convention. YIPPIE. I'm super excited to see all my friends, hear the latest news from Stampin' Up! and get a pedicure. LOL.
I want to say a big thank you to all of my readers that shared their own personal love stories with Russ and I. (I read them to him!) I loved hearing so many stories of how long you've been married and your short engagements too. It can be done. We're proof, right?
Let's chat about this card. I have all kinds of products that I used. I love the For the Birds stamp set (#126407). While I typically have very little time to watercolor, these images are especially easy to watercolor. I use Stampin' Up!'s watercolor paper because I like the quality of it. Of course you will want to start with a Black Stazon pad and then I used blender pens and my ink pads to watercolor the images. As I've mentioned before, this set is very versatile. Lots of great sayings and fun images. Below you will see all the products I used.
Stay tuned over next week. I'll be sharing all my convention swaps that I've done and convention highlights.
Also, big news in MDS world. Next month there is going to be a GREAT special on printing your beautiful creations. Now is a GREAT time to get started on your digital artwork.
