You may have caught a glimpse of my family's lifestyle through my blog, which is very outdoorsy and my personal taste definitely leans towards earthy and natural so I just couldn't pass up this beautiful set with the pheasant and many leafy designs. I'm sure this wheat will be one of my favorites!
So what do you think of the new dotted grosgrain? I thought the dots were a bit much for this more masculine card (which is for my hubby for our anniversary coming on next week) so I turned it over and just let a bit of the dotted side show on the bow. They add some fun whimsy!
For the sentiment I embossed versamark ink with clear powder, intending to sponge a bit of vanilla over it so it pops... but guess what, it popped all on its own. So I left off the vanilla ink.
Did you know that the In Colors this year will be available in MARKERS?!!! Yes, that's right- we've been begging for these! Markers are a fabulous way to ink up just portions of a stamp, add coordinating details like dots and doodles, and also excellent for personalizing the inside with a note and the envelope with your hand-written address! I use my markers all the time and can't wait to order these!
Well, that's all for today. I'm going to leave you with a picture from my garden!
