A Little Scanda-Hoovian Friend

Good evening and thanks for stopping by! I was looking at my sitemeter info earlier and I can't tell you how cool it is to see all the visitors who stop in! Way Cool.

The card I have for you today is one I did a little while back when I was playing around with some new sets. It ended up looking a bit Scandanavian which really wasn't my intent but rather a happy occurrance. Of course, anything Scanda-Hoovian reminds me of my mother-in-law. She does the most beautiful rosemalling (Sp?) and how many people do that any more?! Anyway, I was actually going for a more vintage look, but I like how this turned out anyway. The flower and the verse are both colored with markers rather than inked with pads which requires a steady hand and a little "hot air" to keep the ink fresh enough to stamp on the paper. Assembly is pretty self-explanatory, so I'll just give you the supply list and let you fill in the blanks on this one.

Thanks again for visiting! Catch you later!
