did this for an under 18 birthday swap on one of my groups. At first I had the bottom image but then decided I really didn't like that slide on there so didn't put it on for the rest of them. which do you prefer??

woman power

i love sponging I think its my favorite thing to do. did this for a women's swap. stamped images by close to my heart in black, sponged with yellow, added some stencil punching (I made the stencils using stampin up punches) and the slide that has the words live fast and stay pretty. You can't see it but there is some sparklies in there too that were added.

one of my favorite cards and so simple. all stamps are by close to my heart (went to a card making class recently can you tell? ) some of the flowers are pop dotted on there and edging in brown on the paper for an added touch

aquarium room card

This card will fold down to mail and was a royal pain the rear to make. First I had troubles with the glossy paper making the stamped images look faded after only one day. getting them to stand up was a challenge

i liked adding the clear acetate to the front.

but in the end I like how it turned out

lousy picture but I almost forgot to take one and took a quick shot with my phone before it went in the mail. The stamp is by close to my heart. You can't really see it but it is colored with gel pens.
