I repeated the Happy Birthday sentiment on front die cutting the pretty Roses paper with the Memory Box die and using the cutout sentiment on inside.I repeated the Rose theme by using Rose pattern paper & first time using Close To My Heart CTMH Thoughtful Flowers stamp set to stamp a Rose. Used Hero Arts inks to stamp the Rose & leaves; stamped Rose petals first & then leaves. Used a calligraphy pen to touch up the stamped leaves. Used CTMH same stamp set to stamp Best Wishes sentiment.
calligraphy: green pen used on leaves
ink: Hero Arts ink from a Mthly Kit that had Poinsettias
so the inks - reds & greens were perfect for the Rose & leaves
machine: Sizzix BIGkick
Memory Box: die - Curved Happy Birthday
paper: cardstock - pink core'd, Rose
stamp : Close To My Heart Thoughtful Flowers - Rose & Leaves and sentiment Best Wishes
My daughter & I enjoyed a wonderful afternoon yesterday at a Cirque du Soleil show, Kurios Cabinet of Curiosities, in Grand Prairie, TX (approx 40 mins SW from where I live). I had won 2 tickets thru radio station, KLUV 98.7, here in Central TX. The show has a wonderful Steampunk theme which reminded me of Tim Holtz's wonderful Steampunk. Was first time to a Cirque show. There is a lot of wonderful action on stage.
I start a new part-time seasonal job at a local plant nursery, Calloway's Nursery, tomorrow, Mon 2/20. The word 'nursery' always reminds me of a funny thing my brother said when he was younger and we told him there is nursery for children as in day care and a plant nursery. He said "where do the children sit, on the plants?"
