Hold on to Each Other

Well this card is fitting, we experienced some heavy rains today due to Hurricane Issac, so I decided to hang out in my craft room and play.  Its been a while since our last hurricane but you can never really know how
damaging  the high winds will be.   But seriously when a hurricane does hit hold on..... tight..... and to each other :).

I am super excited about this card that I made for the  My Favorite Things Wednesday Stamp Club 86.  So much to say about it... 

First I love having other crafting buddies with talents that I don't posses. Julie is a friend of mine that does tatting as "one" of her many hobbies.   I have been trying to come up with an idea to incorporate some   flowers that she recently made for me.  While visiting with her one day she let me go through her scrap bag and even her scraps are amazingly beautiful.  I used a tatted band as a border to this cute PI girl.  It sorta pops on the card adding just the right amount of dimension.

Tatting is generally done to make jewelry but I don't know it's elegance is really nice to add to a card,  what do you think?  To see more of Julie's  tatting and her other talents, here is a link to her blog. Let me mention she is also a great writer and reading her posts are informative and a lot of fun!

Second so glad I decided  not to paper pierce this Pure Innocence  little girl's dress. The only way to get better at coloring with copics is to practice, practice, practice.  I am  beginning to see some improvement in my coloring abilities.  Just need to practice.

Lastly I just love this DP vellum paper by Anna Griffin.   I purchased this set some time ago and never really figured out what to use it for.  Today I just got creative and went for it..

So here is what I came up with below.

Paper: SU Cardstock Basic Black, Whisper White, DP an Vellum Ana Griffin Darcey Collection
Stamps: MFT PI Purrfect, Clearly Sentiments about Audrey Hepburn  
Ink: Copics and Black Memento
Accessories: Bits of Bruce Tatting, MFT Rolled Roses, Kaisers Rhinestones and Pearls, American Craft Ribbon.

Well thanks for stopping by,  I hope this gets you enspired :).  Have a great weekend.
