I used Seasonally Scattered for HWNSNBP's Valentine card. I stamped the image in Strawberry slush and then went back with a VersaMark marker and highlighted the little hearts so I could emboss them with pewter EP. Then I randomly highlighted some of the dots with the marker and embossed them with black EP. I carefully used an Exacto knife to trim away the white letters, saving the center of the O. That image was popped up on a strip of Real Red that I had dry embossed with the new heart folder. I punched some leaves out of silver metallic paper for a finishing tough. Funny thing is the card that he bought for me has a very similar motif (stripes and all).
We've both been a bit under the weather with colds this last week but we still managed to get out yesterday. He took me to my favorite tea room and he had lunch while I enjoyed a four course tea. It was a very windy day and it was snowing but it was peaceful and enjoyable just the same.
Last night I printed out all the comments from my Grow Your Blog Post and cut them into strips, folded them, and added them to a little bucket and this morning HWNSNBP chose the winner of my card giveaway..........
Congratulations Ann C.!
And thanks to all of my new followers and those that visited and commented during the Grow Your Blog Party. I've "met" quite a few new blogging friends and have many more places to visit myself.
