Today is one of those days that I feel like I've accomplished a lot. I wish I had days like this everyday. I did some cleaning, baked bread and a cake, practiced the piano, got my passport photos taken and bought skates for the boys. Oh yeah, how could I forget!! I even made a card which I will post at another time.
Today I want to show you the card I made for Beate's Weekend Sketch Challenge. This is the first time I've made a card in this shape....so big. It's nice that it will fit in a business size envelope. Now hmmm, who is going to be getting this card for Valentine's Day??
By the way, the stamps I used are acrylics by Close to My Heart. Before I did the large heart image in red, I tried it in black. Black Stazon. Here is a tip: If you don't want your acrylics to be badly stained DO NOT use Stazon ink!!! Now my stamp is permanently black. Oh well. Now I know.
Here is a close up of the tag at the bottom of the card.
