Nuts About You Card

nuts about you

This is another card I created with Offspring3 in mind. Perfect for fall semester.

Offspring1 and Offspring2 never remembered to check their snail mailboxes without me prodding. Offspring3 has PROMISED to check the snail mailbox on a regular basis. I LOVED getting mail when I was in the dorms, but we all know that was back in the dark ages, before e-anything!

Chocolate Chip, Creamy Caramel (retired), Crushed Curry, Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie, inks – Kirarina WiNK White Pearl, VersaFine Vintage Sepia, dies – Lawn Fawn (acorn), My Favorite Things (leaves), Taylored Expressions (banner), embossing powder – Filigree Fine Art Powder clear.



Watercolor New Baby Card

Pink it is! I watercolored a background, added stamped pieces on top, finished up with ribbon and sequins.
