Love and kisses?

Okay, maybe I don't scan very straight, but my card is definitely not off kilter like this. I got a fancy scanner/printer from my buddy Janet when she left island and I'm too lazy to read the manual so this is as good as it gets for the moment. There is glitter on the birthday cake and candles. The bottom edge is done with the new scallop edge punch. These new punches are easier to use than the previous style, and I love them!

I felt really good today. I got lots of compliments on my latest creations and will attempt selling them at the retail stores of several Shell service stations on island. Please go in and see them!

The front of this red card shines because the dots are actually printed on a transparent window sheet (attached with glue dots under the ribbon.) This is simple but packs a big "WOW!"

Much thanks to Kerry for letting me use her "love" sayings with my cardstock. I am hooked on the embossing and cutting that can be done with the Big Shot and I totally love how easy it is to make great cards with these pieces!

This card is actually my favorite. The flower was done with the watercolor technique I did at a recent class. . .stamp with white ink on shimmery white cardstock, emboss with white powder, spray with water, and loosely brush the aquapainter dipped in ink from a refill bottle. Easy and fun, and oh, what marvelous results!
