Hello Friend

Hey Everybody!

Hope you are having a good weekend.  My hubby and I did yard work yesterday and are relaxing today! :)  As a matter of fact I am hearing him and our son chant "Let's go Celtics!"  :)  Good Times!

So while they are watching the basketball game, I was playing!  I created this card for the challenge over at Moxie Fab:  Cure for the Winter Blues Challenge in the Moxie Fab World.  There's still a little time to play so go check it out--after you see my card of course!  :)

Here are the stamps I used for the background.  I got them a few years ago at a CKU.  They are from Stephanie Barnard.  I don't know if they still make stamps like this but these are cool because the backsides show the design also.

So here is how they turned out.  I stamped directly on the card.  Then I added a few more swirlies.  I heat embossed them.  I love that process--they turn like magic!

I had this blue in my scrap stash and just had to make it fit.  The torn edges were already there-perfect!  Also, the sentiment is heat embossed with white embossing powder.

Until next time my friends...beat those winter blues!  Spring time is around the corner! :)
