Miss Me?

Hello! Did you miss me?!
Hoover Dam

I'm in Oklahoma visiting after being on the road for almost two weeks.  My mother and I loaded up 4 of my kids, my two dogs and hit the road in my RV.  We visted the Hoover Dam, the Grand Canyon, Meteor Crater, the Lowell Observatory, the Petrified Forest and the Painted Desert and many other places along I-40 on the way from Nevada to Oklahoma.  We had a blast!

It is a little harder to find time to scrap here because we are so busy being social! ha  But I did manage to squeeze out a little time to make a card to share. 


I borrowed my Mother's eBosser and grabbed my Craftwell embossing folder - Magic Celebration to start.  I used some luscious purple pearlescent card stock as my card base.  This embossing folder makes a tri-fold card. 

I stamped out the Violets from the Sheena's Floral Fantasy EZMount Stamp Set - Violets.  Then I colored them with my Spectrum Noir Markers.  I used LV1, LV2, LV3, DG2, DG3, DG4 and CT3. I trimmed out the colored image and layered it on some green card stock.  And then added it to the front of the card.

I'm loving Liquid Pearls right now.  I know, I know...I'm a little behind the times.... ha  But I've just started using it and I'm on a roll.  I added a bit of Silver Pearl to the top and bottom of the colored image.  And I made a sweet little green velvet bow on my Ultimate Tool to add also.


On the inside of the card, I added some white card stock and then stamped out my sentiment in the center.  I used a stamp from Sheena's A Little Bit Sketchy EZMount Stamp Set - Only Words - From The Heart.  I fussy cut a flower and leaf that I colored with my Spectrum Noir markers from the same Sheena Douglass -Violet's stamp set and added it to the inside near the sentiment.
