Presents for me!

I received some lovely presents in the mail recently. First, there is Shelly, who had an interesting interpretation of my swap instruction to "please include stamps for return postage". The stamps she included were rubber and polymer. I'm not complaining, I like those even better than the ones at the post office.

Second, my mother recalled that I go through a lot of purple cardstock making cards for Red Hatters, so she sent me a couple of packs of purple Bazzill cardstock, the dotted swiss and the Bazzill Bling, which has a metallic sheen in addition to the linen texture.

So, guess what I did today?

The flowers were ripped from small silk foliage, and the brads are CTMH. The patterned paper I picked up today at the Dollar Tree - 50 sheets of 12x12 paper for a buck!

The images were colored using the Penciled Twinks technique, and the sketch for the top card is from Sunflowers and Dragonflies.

I am glad you received the package- glad you enjoyed the hostess gifts and I love your card- pretty colors you painted the image with. I was thinking that image would work well for inchies......
