Aaahhh!


I am really enjoying visiting with my red rubber, inky friends.  How I've missed them so!  I was able to get a card made today for my DIL, who just graduated at the TOP of her accounting class.  It's about two weeks late, but I know she understands I was under a lot of work stress.  I'm so happy to have her in the family!  She's really a remarkable woman, and my son is happier than I've ever seen him.

Her favorite color is blue (I knew there was a reason I liked her, lol), so I pulled out my favorite SU blue, Pacific Point.  Colored direct-to-stamp with the markers, then matted the stamped image twice, on Wild Wasabi, and Pacific Point.  The pearls, in three sizes, are in the new Idea Book & Catalog - woohoo!  I love the new bling!!

That's a fork bow tied in the ribbon.  You can find .pdf instructions for making it HERE.  Note: I used a meat/salad serving fork to make a larger bow.  The DSP peeking out at the bottom is some Pacific Point (retired) that I've been hoarding (she's worth it!).  I don't know why it looks different than the Pacific Point on the rest of the card.  It matches perfectly IRL.
