I got an award!!! (And a new card)



Yes, I got the "You Cheer me Up Award"!! That just made my day! Lynda from Stamp Act bestowed the award upon me. My first award and it sure does make for a big smile!


And my newest card...
I used the waxy
cuttlebug technique that I read about...didn't actually see it in person. I ran waxed paper through the Cuttlebug over my fiskars "rain" plate that I LOVE. Then ironed that onto glossy paper to leave the image. Then I used my brayer.

I just love how it turned out. The chick is from a $1 Studio G stamp...the umbrella hat is drawn by me. The friend stamp is from SU! I also used a glaze to give the rain a wet look.
