Now this is exciting news! Tim has passed his contractors licence test (yesterday) and i did a little shopping while he did it, these are dollar stamps from Michael's. ( they don't do this test where we live and i went to M's thinking I'd find cute stuff for Valentines day, but they've sold it all already and now are on Easter already.) About the test. ( this is a relief and a GOOD THING!) he's been studying for this for over 3 months now and the last month has been tense as we both wanted it done and over with.
A couple of Quickies...
Did this one today for Tim's Dad whose b-day is next week, the insides stamped with " hope this is your best 29th birthday yet!" from Impress, the whole time I've known him he tells anyone who asked he's 28... ( he retired last year haha) This one is A-2 in size, the Pheasants ( SU ) and the Feather are from an old set called Pheasant Thoughts of you from 2000. they are stamped with Memories Artprint brown on a scrap of ( i don't know cardstock) then the Happy Birthday is stamped in Memories Sepia ( this is from Rubber soul but i punched out the center of the image with an 7/8 circle) to take off the scallop boarder. then layered it to a piece of brushed gold cardstock. and put it on a pop dot. the Handmade paper mat is from Provo Craft and the Card Base is River Rock ( this is surely gonna be a favorite for a while i guess so i better get more cardstock ) It irritates me to no end they are not coming out with the in colors in markers ( i hate those big pads) then the other day it occurred to me i could just use cut and dry foam and make my own pads if i buy the re-inkers... ( now why this didn't occur to me last year I'll never know) This was just a messing around thing, and thought oh it looks kinda springy when i was done with the branches ( SU Artfully Asian stamped in Memories Sepia & versafine Vintage Sepia) this is done on Pretty In Pink cardstock then Colored with Markers and there's some white gel pen for lighting. So then i added the sentiment from ( fancy flexible phrases SU) as kind of an after thought, its punched with a yellow size marvy scalloped rectangle. the Ribbons are from Offray. The Mat is Cranberry Crisp, and the green textured card base is pre-made from DiecutswithaView. this ones also A-2 in size.
