In the Studio again.

I made it into my studio yesterday!   That I actually made it to my work table is quite a feat, considering we have a full house -  3 bedrooms, 1 studio and 7 people.   And I actually finished 8 cards!  We went to my nephew's house this afternoon, when we got home this evening I started another 12 cards, but haven't gotten too far on them yet.  Probably won't get too much further tonight as one of my daughters is trying to round everyone up play a game.  

Here's the card I designed for thank you cards for the flowers, gifts of food, gifts of support etc. we received for Mom.  The paper is Tim Holtz' new Vintage Shabby collection and the vintage image is my mom as a little girl.  The "thank you" was embossed on some scrap vellum I had using VersaColor Ultimate Pigment Ink in black and Stamp-N Stuff Detail Black embossing powder.  The buttons are from my stash (probably vintage buttons my mom gave me years ago.)  The mat for the picture on the left is leftover paper from the card on the right.  The picture mat on the card on the right was created using distress ink applied to craft sheet and spritzed with Perfect Pearls in Pewter and water.

Take care
