You're a Great Friend

Well , I think it's about time that I Blogged, don't you. The last month has been so busy. I've been to Florida with my fabulous daughter and we had a blast. I'm working on my upcoming water colour class with Distressed Inks and Tombow markers. In addition to my favourite pastime, spending as much time with my adorable two granddaughters, soon to be three.

I would like to share a card with you that I designed for my "Black and White with a Splash of Colour" class. I started by creating a template so that I could trace the black line. I cut the rectangle with my Fiskars cutter. I didn't use my Nestabilities as a template 'cause I didn't have the right size. I used an embossing folder for the dots and a Hero Arts sentiment and flowers. I punched the vase (punch bunch), and used Marvy markers to colour the flowers. I then put a bit of glitter on the flowers. Lastly, I attached a turquoise bow on the vase and a bit of chalk on the words.

I hope you like the card and I have a few more to share with you, so stay tuned and I will post again in a few days.

Hope you have a great week.

Thanks so much for stopping by.

I would love to hear from you, so please leave a comment.

This is an awesome card Nicky. You always do incredible work and if I can fit it in, I'm going to take your watercolour class. It looks awesome.
