A couple of cards

Just a couple of quick cards to upload before work. I've been getting up earlier the last few weeks, and this time in the morning is amazingly productive!

Anyway, this card was done as a Card of the Month for the SSReflections yahoo group. I volunteered to make it when someone else in the group got sick (and is recovering without worry, I hope!). Flo is one of the sweetest women and I was happy to make a card for her. I had this image from SU! I stamped in Versamark and heat embossed with black. The background is called Createx Creation. I used Molten Metal in Bronze and Crimson Lumiere. The texture is pretty awesome. I thought it would be fun to just put her name on the bottom of the card. She can take those letters off and do what she wants with them. The stickles will also peel off, I'm sure. The paper I used is Stardream Metallics, black, gold, and rust. Of course, the black is called something else, but I can't remember.


This card was for a contest on another Yahoo group. We got the image and the little brad from Inka at Inkastamps. In return, 10 of us had to make a card to post. They will be voted on and the winner sends her card to Inka to be put in her online gallery. The background of this was painted them distressed with an old pill bottle. The paints are Molten Metallics in copper and gold, and Citrine Lumiere. Very light hand. Again, heat embossed because it's really the best way to make the image pop. Oh, and the background behind the background is scrunch and cling, watercolor paper with H20s.

Better be getting ready to go to work. It's been a long few weeks. We're hanging in, though it does have its moments. We're dealing with the will and all the legalities now. Power of attorney, accounts, insurance, policies and procedures. Lordy, all of this stuff is exhausting!
