Something Pretty for Ya!

I sense that nobody liked my Creepy Clowns but that's okay. So I thought I would give you something pretty to gaze on! This card is yes, another one for my mother to give to my brother and his wife for their anniversary. Personally, I don't send anniversary cards unless it is a milestone anniversary. Then I usually forget (heck, I have trouble remembering my own), and the date passes and I wait till the next milestone! Now, I do try really hard to remember birthdays, but I'm not 100% perfect at that either. I blame it all on having those twins 18 years ago. I think they sucked a few million brain cells out of me! And we all know that once we have lost a brain cell, it is gone forever. So for any new moms who might be reading this, it is perfectly NORMAL to suddenly feel like you lost a piece of your brain after that baby is born. It's okay...it will recover....for a while....then that little baby will turn 18 and you'll suddenly start to lose them again when they start staying out till all hours of the night and you worry yet again!

Enough blabbering...on with the card. I stamped the Hero Arts Long Stem Blossom in Ranger Adirondak Lettuce, then added extra colour to the leaves with my copics. Coloured the flowers red, added detail with my BS copic black and added some Inkadinkado viney flowers with Memento Rhubarb and Ranger Willow. The little Hero Arts Bird was embossed in gold, then filled in with Tombow, cut out, shaped and added with a pop dot.

Enjoy!

ok, this is so pretty! Very different from the clowns ya got there. While I am not really drawn to clowns I have to agree with the boys! We can't wait to see Dark Knight here!! I do like the joker and have my fingers crossed for Heath Ledger. I have never touched a copic so you better be ready to show me how they work...I have no idea. Yeah, another rock I been hiding under, LOL see ya soon

Wow! This, as always is a great card. I, like Paula, have not used Copics since I cannot seem to find any place in Canada to purchase them.
