I had hoped to get this post up over the weekend, but I ended up pulling a muscle in my neck and shoulder and didn't really feel like doing anything I didn't have to do. It's feeling a bit better today but still somewhat sore. We've had nothing but rainy weather. Someone said yesterday that it felt like we were in Seattle. I don't mind the rain. It's somewhat peaceful to me. And, yes, I am one who likes a lot of snow! I dread heat and humidity but don't have to worry about that just yet.
My card today was made for a niece's birthday. Back in December, I found a copy of Magnolia Ink which included a free stamp "Christmas Tilda with Puppy." I loved that issue. However, it doesn't seem like my local bookstore is carrying that magazine anymore or another one from Australia that I also loved. Seems like whenever I find something I like, it's no longer available here. Anyway, I'm getting off the subject. I started my card base by layering papers from Prima's Sweet Fairy line. Tilda was stamped with black VersaFine ink and colored with Copic markers. A bow was tied around the bottom with Offray ribbon. Sentiment was stamped onto a Prima tag. The Prima flowers were attached with a Doodlebug brad.
I'm really enjoyed learning to use the Copic markers. I have techniques I need to improve upon as I slowly build my collection of colors. It is relaxing and fun.
That's it for today. I'm meeting a friend for dinner tonight. We've been friends since childhood. Although we don't see each other often, when we do get together, it's like no time has passed. I am also happy to see I have a couple of new followers. Thank you each and everyone who take the time to stop by here and also for your sweet comments. Have a wonderful day!
