Heart of Gold

I thought I would try two challenges this week. The first is a newbie for me, it's called "Try Stampin on Tuesday" Among the MANY talented ladies on the design team is one of my favorite crafters, Tanya Bell - Stampin' T.  I have met her a couple of times, she is a gorgeous person and an awesome crafter!  Even when we were standing next to each other at the stamp carving table at convention, I was feeling a little star struck... 

The second is Just Add Ink,  I do love the challenges they come up with. Also one of their very talented Design Team members is my favourite Stampin' Up! upline, Louise Sharp.

Anyway, Try Stampin on Tuesday has a sketch challenge with a twist... Girlfriends.

And JAI is Just Add Watercolour

I made this card in honor of one of my crafting "sisters" who got a bit of bad news last week.  She has a heart of gold and I hope she knows that she can call on me whenever she needs to. xx

Keep Stampin'

  2. Marlene your friend will just love your card! You can feel the "heart" in it. That and the sweet watercolouring are just delightful. Thanks for playing along at Just Add Ink this week.

  3. Such a delightful, and thoughtful, card Marlene. I love how you've highlighted Louise with pointy hands, in the photo - made me laugh! Thanks for playing along with us at Just Add Ink this week.

  4. Hahahaha - you make me laugh Marls! I love the watercolouring technique - I'm yet to try it...I'll be casing this card. You are seriously such a beautiful person and I'm sure the 'crafting sister' will get much comfort from your card. Lou xo
