Mother's Day Special

Don and I spent a wonderful afternoon with our daughter, Angela, and her husband, David, and grandkids, Sarah and Stephen. Daniel, Janet, and grandkids, Alex, Chloe, and Maddie sent beautiful flowers. I am so blessed.

And this is the card I made for Angela.

Working With A Digital Stamp

I want to show how I sometimes take a digital sentiment and create an image that fits the project that I am working on. I am using a digital image that is available from Cornish Heritage Farms.

No. 1-- Insert the desired image.
No. 2--The image was copied so I now have two images. The first one is cropped to only say "Happy". The second one is cropped to say "Anniversary".
No. 3--The two images are now arranged to achieve the desired look.

Pretty cool. Sometimes we do the same thing with rubber stamps by just inking up certain words before stamping.

CAS Today

It has really warmed up here in Michigan today. Time to get some yard work done. But there is still time to stamp. Right. Here is my next card to share with you. Very Simple. I sponged the diamond with Memento Desert Sand and stamped the image with Memento Rich Cocoa. I love the CAS look. The stamp is from Hero Arts and is called "Exotic Bloom".
