I can't believe how long it has been since my last post! I've been going through some serious crafting withdrawal. I've been working a lot of double shifts lately as now that the snow birds are gone, business where I work is starting to slow down. By the time I get home, I'm so exhausted and then I have to get up the next morning and do it all over again. I also picked up extra shifts last week because I needed last Saturday off to go to the Scrapbook Expo. It was totally awesome!!!! Just Laura and I went and we also celebrated "Aunt's Day". We bought lots of new goodies including paper (you can never have enough) and Scrapbuck was there with Quickutz 2 X 2 Dies for $1.00 and the 4 X 4 Dies for $3.00! We love Quickutz, so needless to say we certainly stocked up! My gifts from Laura included a pair of Boston Bruins earrings, dinner, and my very first pedicure. We had such a good time. I spent the night at our Mom's where I made my version of a skinny margarita, they were super delicious!
I recently received a great gift bag full of new stamps from Dandelion Designs. They are truly one of my favorite companies. I wanted to make Jean, the owner, a thank you card using some of these stamps.
I cut the state of Florida out using the 50 States Cricut Cartridge. The post card was made using the Papertrey Ink Button Card Die and the Postmarks Stamp Set. I stamped the little beach girl, colored her with Copics, and paper pieced her bikini. The stamped and fussy cut the sun. Then, I added a little yellow Stickles around the rays.
This picture doesn't do the card much justice. It's much nicer in real life.
