Hi everyone. I hope you all had a nice Sunday! I worked on a few challenges so I'll have cards to show you this week. The card I want to show you today was made for the challenge over at No Time To Stamp which was to make a card that has some kind of pot on it. It could be a flower pot, a coffee pot, whatever. I chose the pots on the Overwhelmed image at squigglefly.

I accidently printed this image on to Stampin Up card stock, and copic markers just do not do well on this cardstock for some reason. I don't know if there is some kind of coating or what, but if you enlarge the photo of the card you will kind of see on her shirt and apron how it's not blended smoothly. It wasn't enough to bother me though, so I continued to make the card with it.
Now this card is going to be sent to a friend of mine who hates Chinese food. She says she doesn't like it because she heard a long time ago that they cook cats. She knows it's not true, but she still can't get the thought out of her head. Anyway, you needed to know that to understand the inside of my card.
If you say the verse on the outside with the verse on the inside it does make a catchy little rhyme! LOL! I think it will make her laugh.
Here are the colors I used for this image
The other day a girl on the squigglefly group at card universe made the comment that she loved the squigglefly images, but she found them a little too expensive for her. I went into all the reasons I find digital stamps to be so economical and I decided to make a little video that tells you all the ways they can save you money. It's short, and there's no fancy music or even pictures, but it's informative!
I did spend a LOT of time yesterday making the microsoft word video, and I have it ready for you too. It's really hard to get these things down to ten minutes, and I had to cut out one part where I add an image and place text, but since I do the same thing two more times I decided cut one of them out so the video would upload. Anyway, I hope you get some good pointers from it, and I'd love to hear your feedback on it; good and bad!
Well, gotta run. Have a great day and thanks for looking!
