Happy for you.

June-26-2010-sketchHello my wonderful friends! Last night I inked my fingers, yay! felt so good!! Summer is here and DD and I are spending time outside, working primarily in our garden, I have a lot of lettuce and some little tomatoes are showing up, so excited! I promise to share pictures later. DD loves to run around the sprinkles and get crazy, LOL.

Anyway, this is the card I made last night. I used the new paper from BasicGrey "Cappella". The stamps I used are from "Botanicals" set. I inked all the edges and then distressed them. For the image I used the Embossing Resist Technique and I added some Pretty pearls around.

Happy for you
