GrampaStamper says "Thank you"!

John is very thankful for all the wonderful comments he received on his birthday. He can't believe how many people wanted to wish him well and, he also loves to tell me that he's getting more comments than I do! Well, honey, whatever makes you happy is alright by me. But now we return to the regularly scheduled programming.

I really liked the colours selected for CC205 last Tuesday, but it took me a couple of days to sit down and make my card. I completed it yesterday and wanted to share it with you today. The colours, Pink Pirouette, Kiwi Kiss and Perfect Plum look fabulous together. As you can see, the base is Pirouette Pink and to each side, I added a strip of SU's DP to bring in the Kiwi Kiss. I used my Nestabilities - Labels 2 and embossed and cut three different sizes in the colours of the day. I used a Paperbag Studio stamp for the sentiment which is stamped in Elegant Eggplant ink. On the brads, I used Copic markers to enhance the colours and, if you look closely, you will see that it has given the brads a marble effect. Click on the photo for a larger view and you will be able to see the marble effect better. If I had an SLR camera, I would have taken a close up for you, but, alas, I don't. The flowers are from my stash, too. This is another card for the February birthdays.

Tomorrow the kids and grandkids and my sister are coming over for a birthday celebration and we'll have lots of cake and ice cream then.

In the meantime, I wish you all a Happy Valentine's Day.
