The Reader

I needed a card to send to my sister today.  I remembered that I have colored a few digis and put them in a file for "just in case."  For once I had a great idea!  I whipped this up in about 15 minutes after I got to work!  I just grabbed the digi, papers and ribbon along with the base card to use, then headed out.  It was a great chance to demonstrate how I put a card together for my student, and I ended up with this pretty card.  The butterfly paper came from WalMart, the ribbon was in a package of ribbon pieces, the teal paper was from the Taj Mahal mat stack that I picked up about a month ago.  The white base card is from a pack I got quite a while ago on sale, from K and Co.  Really handy to keep around.

I had a great time coloring this, think I'll try it out again because it's going to be one of my favorites.

Thanks for looking!

I love it, love it, love it! I finally got some time to play, now that graduation is over. Update for anyone who cares, all four seniors graduated! Hurray!!! And a total surprise to me, three of them were awarded Heisey Awards for improvement. I've only had one or two who got that in the last eight years. You can imagine how happy I was for them, that the rest of the faculty noticed what I had been seeing...

So this is the first card I made with the Gypsy. It took a while, had to watch several videos, but I did it! And I love it. Can't wait for one of our out of town trips this summer when I can take it with me, that's why I bought it, but I don't think I'll be doing much without it now unless I'm using MTC. And I'll make a couple more cards like this, now that it's all laid out for me. What a treat!

I used: Winter Woodland, base card (with envelope) from K and Company, other papers from a pack of scrap I picked up at a small store in Billings, MT called Sisters. Fun place to wander!

I'm going to enter this in a challenge, I think. Fun to see what others think!

Thanks for looking!
