I'm still using some of the supplies I got in the September card kit from Simon Says Stamp. One of my favorites from the kit was the metallic cardstock by Tim Holtz. In fact, I liked it so much that I have ordered more of that metallic cardstock. You will be seeing more cards made from this stuff. For this card, I also used the 3D embossing folder, also by Tim Holtz that was in the kit.
several months ago, using Memory Box dies, and a friend die by Heffy Doodle.

This has been a tough week for me with the loss of my brother to cancer. I did manage to make one card for a friend who is struggling with health issues. She told me about a chipmunk or squirrel that has been showing up with the birds to get food. I just got this squirrel stamp and thought of her.

While trying to get motivated to make an anniversary card, I saw Jennifer's McGuire's blog and video on Effortless Watercolor. My first attempt was a total failure, probably because my Versamark ink pad was too dry. The second one looked iffy at first, but as Jennifer says, "It looks like a hot mess, but wait until it dries." It's hard to get a good stamped image on textured watercolor paper, so I stamped several times with my wetter Versamark ink pad and added white embossing powder. I added Distress ink in several shades of green, then spritzed it with Perfect Pearls water. When dry, it didn't impress me, so I added some blue and purple colors. When completely dry and flat, I cut the piece to size and glued it to a white card base, then added a frame and die cut sentiment.
