Doodling ...

You know, it wasn't all that long ago that I felt like I was cheating on all my Stampin' Up! stamps when I started to experiment with other stamp companies - oh the guilt!! Now, it doesn't feel quite right to make a card without a single A Muse image or sentiment!! It is kind of amazing how things can change in such a short amount of time - I guess it just goes to show you how fickle I can be ... no, not fickle ... open minded!! I really am enjoying delving into new stamp companies! There are a lot that I am just dying to try - My Favorite Things and Green Grass Stamps come to mind! This card was one I whipped up last night for a friend of mine at work that is leaving us for greener pastures (no weekends, no holidays - can't blame her - we'll miss you, Brenda!). This was the first time that I have tried to watercolor with re-inkers and my aquapainter - I'm relatively pleased with the outcome, but I think I need more practice. It still looks too solid for me ... oh well! I'm off to my craft cave to work on the new A*Muse*A*Palooza challenge - no black ink! Hopefully, I will be able to post that one soon!! Have a great night - can't wait to see who got voted off on AI! I will admit to being a reality show junky!!

Stamps: SU!, Mike's $1 stamps, CS by SU!, May Arts Ribbon, SU! brads

P.S. If you all want more details on my cards, let me know! I could give you step by step, but I think most of my cards are pretty self-explanatory!!
