Got the picture!

I had to be stealthy and not look like I was stealing something from her gifts, but I got the photo of the 3x3 card I gave to my neighbor - hence the less-than-perfect photo. This card was from Latte and Gandy (see below for new pic of them... too funny!)

Stamp Sets: All in the Family, Fundamental Phrases
Ink: Jet Black StazOn, Chocolate Chip, Close to Cocoa (for watercoloring)
Paper: Certainly Celery (base), So Saffron (scallop circle), Chocolate Chip (1 3/8" circle), Whisper White (1 1/4" circle), Cutie Pie DSP
Accessories: Aqua Painter
Punches: Scallop Circle, 1 3/8" Circle, 1 1/4" Circle, Corner Rounder

I used the watercoloring with an ink pad technique for this, basically because I was too lazy to pull out my Watercolor Wonder Crayons and my Close to Cocoa pad was sitting on my (extremely messy) stamp table. Worked out ok if I do say so myself... this card from start to finish took under 10 minutes to make.

Once again, I am doing some spring cleaning... it was 45-degrees here in sunny Chicagoland yesterday and this morning (notice - I didn't say that is was that warm now!). In any event, I've posted a trade list on Splitcoaststampers, so if you're looking for some new-to-you stuff, check it out - TRADE LIST. I'm also spring cleaning my Longaberger Baskets; they're uploaded to a PHOTO ALBUM.

I'm still looking for ideas for the 5x5 scrapbook with the Crew Kids Girl SSK... anyone????

This Saturday, I'm going to the Stampahowlics gathering, so I'd better get working on my swap cards... there are supposed to be 100 Stampin' Up! demonstrators there! I can't wait!!! I just hope it doesn't wear me out like everything from last weekend - I left work early to go back to the doctor yesterday. They put me on prednisone. I hate that stuff, but if it will make me better...

Lastly, this was just too funny not to share... here are both of my furry kids drinking out of the SAME water bowl... TOO FUNNY!
