Inspired by Deb

When I went to Dallas for Spring Break I was able to spend some time with my friend Deborah (Turtle Chronicles). She is a very talented stamper and scrapbooker. I have know her now for 9 years - (WOW) and I used to think she was "way" to into all this craft stuff....and now look at me! Hee hee! She is a SU demonstrator too.

Anyway, I wanted her to teach me something too and we did the alcohol ink technique or polished stone. So, she whipped out a card that she already had prepped for a class and we made this using the "Simply Said" set by SU.
I really like the card and decided to replicate it for my stamping club. I don't have many choices for re-inkers though and so I just used some of what I and brown. Somehow, even though the colors remind me of rainclouds, I still liked it and the card managed to still represent spring. I do love Deb's better though! :) As I told you yesterday, Jen, my downline, asked me to show a card at her first workshop. I didn't have much notice, which was fine, but with a 2 year old around sometimes I need more than 24 hours to create and prep a new card, so I used it for her workshop too. Everyone seemed to like the easy technique! I don't think I have any personal notes today. I'll just leave you with this picture! My little sunshine! Talk to you soon!

Love you lots,
