This could be "for you"!!


Card Recipe for my Stampin' Sistas: Wild Wasabi & Groovy Guava ink and paper, Versamark ink, One of a Kind Stamp Set, Cuttlebug--Swiss Dots and Script, Hodgepodge Hardware brads.


Hey everybody! I did something rather spontaneous and unusual (for me, anyway!) yesterday--I went down to my craft room and stamped a card, just for the fun of it! No swap, no b-day, just made a card because I had a few minutes!!


I'm not 100% thrilled with how it turned out, as I'm a total perfectionist, but overall I think it is pretty good. If you make a comment on this post, I'll choose someone randomly and send this card to you. Sound good?


It's soccer season and my husband, "Coach Cheney," already left with Alex for the game--so I need to round everybody else up and head out to cheer them on for the first game of the season. Goooooo Firebirds!!

Love your card! And it's so nice to hear that you are getting warm spring weather already. Enjoy it for me too. It has been so cool here yet. Can't wait for it to warm up.
