A quick Damask!

This afternoon, I made what should have been a quick card, while I was watching my my grandkids. Stamp ....then play......then stamp......then play.....then cut......then play.......

I bought my girlfriend a dozen peach roses because she just had her gall bladder out, and what could make a girl feel better than ROSES!!

So I wanted to make a card that kind of matched, so I used Papertrey Ink's Melon Berry and New Leaf, along with the Damask stamp set and Mega Mixed Messages. I stamped it all onto Vintage Cream cardstock and then roughed up the edges a bit and adhered it to a Vintage Cream background.

I didn't know at first but I kind of like it and now I have to suck it up and give it away! I am terrible at giving away my cards. I have a hairdresser who sells them for me and I hardly ever take her down any because I don't like to part with them...... silly!

I am so excited!! I am going to Scrapfest this weekend with my sister-in-law (who doesn't even have a blog and she makes the most gorgeous cards and I think she reads this the natural thing to do would be to make fun of her........but I think I will wait until after Scrapfest so I can still get a ride.....) and I am taking this class with Vicki Boutin!!

Terribly thrilled about it and I will let you know how it goes.......will I crash and burn or will I come back knowing EVERYTHING about masking and resisting and more.......or will I learn everything there is possibly to know about masking and resisting and more .......and then forget it all before I get home.....(now that's a possibility!!)
