What A Fun Day!!!!!

I love love love to get new stuff and boy did I today! Mr. brown ask me if I was going to stamp up the world, what a funny guy!!! there were 4 20lbs boxes dropped off to day and let me tell you I had no clue where to start!!!!! so can you tell by looking at the card that they are only SU! I am not sure that I have ever made a non work shop card that was all SU!
the first set of cards uses Kind Thoughts stamp set and the new tea party DP the CS is groovy guava, Close to Cocoa and confetti cream! the ribbon (I can't remember the name) is sooooooo pretty I love the ribbon!!!!! the pearl is from the pretties kit and the ribbon slide is some old HPH! I pierced the edges ans filled them in with close to cocoa. I left the sentiment off so I could use them for anything!!!!

this next card is also using SU! DP and the only thing on here that is not SU! is the sewing and there is sewing in the catty this year so I would say that makes it okay!!!

I watercolor the main image with reinkers and N-WWC love to water color!!!!! pierced the edges and did you notice and this never happens for me...... I did not layer the main image and there is only 4 layers on the card. kind of like the way it looks!!!! the colors are soft sky and so saffron!!! and that is the new silver HPH from the new mini!!!! I distressed the edges and slapped a thank you on there, done!!!!

TFL :D

These are so great. I especially love the top one. I also love the distressed look of the bottom one. Nice work! Have a great week!

Both of these are beautiful, but I agree with the other posters, that top one takes the cake! Wowzers!

There you go again, doing a great job of distressing! I have trouble with anything but tearing; can you give me some pointers on the way you do it? Have you done a tutorial on it that I missed?
