Here's a card I just made for my sister, based on an idea I saw on Splitcoast Stampers. I wet the cardstock with a mister (recycled spray bottle), then stamped with a solid image stamp of a leaf using a rainbow ink pad. Once that dried, I stamped the same image again. Finally, I used the overstamp with the leaf veins on top of the leaf. Finally, I used a texture stamp (tiny dots) and the swirl stamp.
I got four cards done over the weekend, though one is still not ready to go out. I guess I was a bit overenthusiastic with the glue (Elmer's) and it's still not dry. When I talked to my sister this evening, she told me she'd gotten all the cards I'd sent (some were missing the last time we'd talked). Now she has #50 - #34. YES!! She said they really perk her up and brighten her day, so I think the plan is working. That's what it's all about.
Today I've been knitting like mad on my sock. I turned the heel, and am now about halfway done with the foot. I plan to work on it more tonight, and if all goes well, it will be finished tomorrow, right on schedule. Then I can get started on my older niece's birthday socks.
