Hey, I have FOLLOWERS!!

Well, I am SO excited to see that I have some really terrific comments, and even two FOLLOWERS in just one day!  Thanks, Ladies, for joining me.  I am so happy to have you with me. 

I was so in love with the gingham paper in my last post, I decided to go at it again.  I bought these papers at AC Moore, and they were single sheets.  I bought them too long ago to notice who made them.  I will definitely take more note in the future.   This card was made with GinaK Designs "Enjoy the Sunshine" set.  The button was scavenged from some ribbon that Anthropology gave as gift wrap. (I loved this ribbon.  It was seam binding with tons of buttons and bells sewn on.  You'll definitely be seeing more from that ribbon in the future!)  OH YEAH!  Neat trick--I clipped the button out of the ribbon, but left a tab of the seam binding attached.  Made it SUPER easy to attach to the card and retain the stitching!!

I found the little clothespins at Paper Source.  Love them!  I also used a textured background stamp in versamark and embossed it with clear embossing powder. 

I did some other berries in colored pencil, but while the colors go nicely with the papers, these don't look as good as copic markers, I do like the vibrancy of the colors.  I NEED SOME COPICS!!!  (Let me know if you hear about a giveaway, will ya?)
I have more cards to show off to you, so stay tuned!  Thanks for dropping by!



  1. Oh loving those strawberries! They look fantastic! Tally Scrapper is having a Copic sale....I love Copics, need to use them more. Too many projects never enough time!

  2. Strawberries are the BEST!! Who would have known there were Manly cardmakers out there! I am not on BLOGGER, but I am following under my generic BLOGGER ID!!

  3. Holy cow, Richard! This is a wonderful card! I've always loved this sentiment but you really did something special with it. Great composition and the black background really makes the front pop. ;) Always good to know another guy crafter... we're a rare (but not dying!) breed! Take care and God bless. :)
