A Promise Is A Promise.....

I promised to come back early this morning and share this little birthday card I made.....I'm getting a late start, but here I am!  I usually like to post way early but I sort of slept in this morning. (Not a bad thing!)


This little hAngler is stamped onto watercolor paper and colored with Ranger distress Inks.  I matted onto dark green card stock and the top piece of card stock has the center cut out using a Spellbinders Die and the embossing around the opening was done using a metal embossing template run through my Cuttlebug to emboss.  I used to do all this by hand, but now you can just run it through a machine and you have the same wonderful embossing in a fraction of the time!  Talk about a "Blast from my past!"  I found a whole case of these templates that I had tucked away for safe keeping.   I didn't use any fancy papers or ribbons or flowers or ANY fussy, fussy on this one.  I like clean and simple every now and then. 

If you like him, leave me a comment.....I love hearing from you!

Well I'm off to get another cup of coffee and run through some of the blogs I visit every day to see what you guys have going on.  Have a wonderful Monday and remember to take a little time each day just for you!

I love the clean and simple look. I know it can take as much time as 'fancy'. Glad you found some 'new' err forgoten toys to play with.

Glenda you always complete your cards in the most perfect way. This cards needs no embellishment because your image is so cute and coloring is perfect - as always. I just bought a complete set of Distress inks so I can practice coloring like you. I always love your work.
