Afternoon Thanks

Good Morning! It is going to be one beautifully hot and sunny day! And the forecast is more of that to come. I am sure glad that our air conditioner is working!!

Today's card is one that I came up with when I was playing at Becky's house and using her stamp set. It's one that the shoebox club did last night. I couldn't be there so my wonderful friend, Sherry, took my place and guided the group in making this card. Thanks, Sherry! You're the best! I am going to say that this card is very easy to put together, so I hope that the group didn't have any trouble putting it all together! I just want to point out the bouquet of flowers... If you notice, the bouquet has two colors in it (Wild Wasabi and Groovy Guava). But it is only one stamp. And, if you are a real Stampin' Up! expert, you will note that we don't sell markers in those colors. You may be asking yourself, then, 'how'? Well, let me tell you... Take the re-inkers of each of those colors and put some into the lids of their corresponding ink pads. Then take a q-tip and dip it into the re-inker and dab it onto the stamp just like you would if it were a marker! Clever, huh!! I saw my friend, Emily, do this once. Anyway, everything else should be self-explanatory. Enjoy your day!
