Quality Seeds, Anyone?

I have been neglecting my blog big time. My apology to all. Life has been crazy busy and hectic here these days. My son has stuff going on here and there and everywhere. Thankfully, my PSE online class will be over this week. The school Valentine's day party is later today. Boy, am I grateful to get the stuff done for it in time! Hopefully, I can relax a little after all my homework is turned in and I can stamp more :)

Here's a card I did a couple of weeks ago that I forgot to post for my friend, Nancy :( The flower pot image is from one of her Rare Image Rubber Stamps sheets. And I somehow got a hold of the "Friendship Seeds" template a couple of years ago on Katydid's site. I tried to get back to her site so I could give her proper credits but could not. I'm so sorry I can't give you the credits you so deserve, Katydid. Please know I appreciate what you have shared with us a while back.

I thought the image goes well with the template. So I decided to use it here. And I think it turns out quite well. Image was coloured in with Copic pens and highlights were added with white gel pen. The edges around the image is the (almost) torn frame technique from TJ Newsletter, Dec. '08 issue. Card base was embossed with texture plate, I believe, from Fiskars. Then I ran white ink pad over the embossed area. Click the photo for a detail viewing pleasure :)


Thank you all, for sticking with me and for visiting. Happy Valentine's Day! And until next time, may mojo live happily in your heart, and may passion bloom in your soul. Be well!
