Wonderful You

Yes I added a picture of myself to my blog, I actually hate having my picture taken, I'm usually the one behind the camera, but I do realize that having a face to go along with someones words does make it a bit more personal, so this is me!

This is one of the cards that were making tonight for my Stamp Camp, its a smaller group tonight, I have six ladies coming and I'm all set and ready to go. I think this Wonderful You stamp set with the matching wheel is so sharp! I was going to order it when the Spring/Summer Stampin' Up catalog first came out, but I'm glad that I waited for this months special were if you buy this stamp set, you receive the matching wheel for free.
I used the jumbo wheel on the card base and rolled just the edge of the card with chocolate chip. The center panel is river rock and I used the Canvas BG stamp with Versa Mark. Then I stamped the solid flower in Ruby Red and the outlined flower in Chocolate Chip on top, the leaves I inked up in Sahara Sand and stamped off once before stamping onto the bottom of the main image. The main image is punched using the Horizontal Slot punch and the ribbon was pulled through and tied, I also used pop dots to raise the center flower image to add dimension and used my piercing template and piercer to a line the wholes for the three brads.

I wanted to thank everyone that left a message and suggestions to my post regarding my sleeping problem, I'm going to give the lavender a try.

Hi Lynn, waving at your new picture!! I hide from the camera too. That's a great picture. Isn't it funny how you picture someone before you see them and then they look totally different.

This is a very pretty card, I'm sure they will love it!! Anything with chocolate chip is a winner in my book!

Have a great day, hope you're sleeping better!

This layout is just fanatastic, and so far, I have been able to resist getting this set, but it's getting harder!
