With school letting out soon and with our move getting closer--I have decided to take a break from my design team work. Actually, I tried to quit them all (some a few times!) because I felt that it wasn't fair if I disappeared for a while but knew that it was MOST important to help my children with this time of transition. All of the crazy people I work for did not accept my resignation, instead, they are allowing me to take a leave and return when I am ready. What amazing people I work for. Now I can rest easy knowing I am doing the right thing for my family without compromising my work.
With that being said, I am sure I will pop in and out here and there up to post a few cards until our move (middle of June) and then I will be gone for awhile when we actually move and set up our new home (as my computer and stamping supplies will be packed up!) I will keep you updated and I can assure you I will be back. Thanks for hanging in there with me.
I thought this card would be appropriate as we fast approach the summer season. I ADORE this Inkadinkado image. It is called Fun on the Beach. I stamped the image in Brillance black ink and colored it with Copic markers. I used the shell collage cuttlebug folder to create some texture in the background. This folder has an awesome design, unfortunately I covered up some of it with the image--but you can see the folder if you click the link above. The final touch was a little heart charm I received from a friend for my birthday (Thanks Cindy!) I tied it on to the card with silver cord which is attached to the sheer May Arts ribbon.
The ribbon, stamp, and cuttlebug folder can be found at Stamper's Dream!
Here is a close up of the image. I popped out the Nestability scalloped circle to add some depth to the card.
