Before I head off to bed.....

...I figured I'd post these last 3 cards......

After I posted the other photos I pulled out some reinkers that I've never opened either--some Adirondak inks--and started playing. I've been wanting to try the polished stone and just never took the time. SO play I did!! If you've never done it...DO!! It's addicting though-at least it was for me. I wanted to see all the different creations I could come up with. After a while I pulled out my CTMH re-inkers too. FUN, FUN, FUN!! Samuel came in, shortly after I'd finished, and HE wanted to 'play' too. Somehow I managed to talk him into tomorrow. -I'd already put everything away!! I also played around with spritzing the glossy paper and then dropping ink from the reinkers on. THAT was FUN too!!! SO, now I have all these colored papers waiting for images to be stamped on them!

I DID make up a few cards though. I used a sketch idea from Beate's blog (
If you've never made it over to HER site-GO! As quickly as you can. She is AMAZING! I just LOVE her artwork (and sketch ideas)!! She's a very talented lady that's for sure!

I really shouldn't have taken this picture so head on as the sparklies caused it to glare a bit too much but you get the idea.
AND, I think if I'd realized it before I'd already stuck it all down, I would have used a different ribbon under the pink one. It brought out the yellow in the other butterfly but this butterfly was done with different colors-no yellow! Oh well.....too late now!

I just LOVE this layout.
