Howdy NEIGHbour!!


I've been itchin' to show you this card I made on the weekend with one of my new stamps!! I love going to new stores and finding new stamps and new tools!! This stamp is an adorable horsie made by a company called Magenta! I stamped it in Archival Versafine Black Onyx ink on shimmery white paper and used my Prismacolour pencils, odorless mineral spirits and blending stumps. I matted the image square on Chocolate Chip and used my mat pack to make holes in each corner. I used some My Mind's Eye patterned paper and Real Red cardstock for the base. I added a strip of Tempting Turquoise and used the mat pack down the middle of the strip (not sure if you can see it in the photo). I added the little triangle in the corner, punched using the slot punch and added two pieces of brown gingham. I pop dotted the main image and then used both my 1/8th Casual Karen Foster Snap Stamps and also my 1/8th Formal KFSS to make the sentiment, which says 'Howdy NEIGH bour'!! I think I might send this one to a magazine to see if, by chance I could MAYBE get published!! That's my next goal!! We'll see!!


I also wanted to show you this lovely picture of my couch.....yes, it's under there! Yesterday afternoon, it looked like the Prima factory exploded all over my livingroom!! Heehee!! I was part of a Prima share a while back with a lady in BC and they arrived at the post office today!!! NO, this isn't all mine!! Darn it!! Most of it is mine, though! The rest is shared between my Mom and two of her friends though. I got some Isabelle's Secrets (that's the ones along the top in packaging shaped like bras and panties), 4 boxes of Essentials (the bigger boxes on each end), 3 boxes of the new Accents tins and I also got several boxes of Caribbean flowers (the ones in the pink boxes in the middle). I don't think I'll need any more flowers for the rest of my life.........until Prima releases a new line!!! Bahahahaaaaaaaaa!!!

Kim, I think you should have been submitting your cards long before this to be published. Some of yours are nicer than in the magazines... and I get quite a few so I know! Why not send all 5 from the class as well as this one? God bless. Linda.
