A card for my Grandmother

I should be packing right now....since I am driving to Dallas tomorrow morning and have done nothing to get ready to leave town for a few days! Sometimes it's nice to just take a road trip! My Grandmother has been in the hospital and I am bringing her this card. While I am in the area... I am planning to go to Canton (flea market) at least one day and I am hoping to go to Athens for the event they are having at Winnie & Talula's. I hope you all have a great weekend!

May Fleur de Lisa Class

At StampAntonio I have been doing a class each month called "Fleur De Lisa". For May these two cards will be what you make in my class. We will be using stamped images then coloring them with PrismaColor pencils and odorless mineral spirits. Then building the flowers right on to the stamped images. I will also demonstrate how to hand dye ribbon to match perfectly.

I want to take a minute to thank everyone for stopping by and leaving me comments! I really appreciate every one of you! Your comments make my day!
