Rachel Ann Miller Card


Hey Everyone!! I'm so proud of myself! LOL! I made a card 2 days in a row! Seriously. . .maybe my mojo is returning! My daughter has been busy with her school activities so it has freed me some time to craft a bit. Actually, my daughter is avoiding me because I've been pushing her to finish her essays for her college applications and whenever she sits down to watch TV or come near me, I'll ask her "are you done, yet?". LOL!

I truly hate the college application process. Why do they want so much information. . .can't they just pull her school records? Sheesh. There has to be a better system. Can you imagine having to fill out 10 different applications? It is, quite honestly, very annoying. I can understand why my daughter is avoiding to have to fill them out and in the process avoid me, too!


Anyway. . .now to my card! This is a Rachel Ann Miller stamp. . .so cute! I got it from Jen of Pieces of Me online store Little C's Stamps n' Things. You may also click on the banner above to check out all the goodies that she sell. Honestly, I wish I could buy them all! Maybe one day I'll win the mega millions lottery and I can. I still believe that one day I will win it! I, honestly, feel that I will. LOL! Yeah, right!! But, it's always good to dream. . .it keeps me going. Ha!

I colored the image using my Copic Markers, smudged the background with dye ink using a sponge dauber. I added a bit of Stickles to parts of the image and added a few embellishments. That's it. Easy-peasy!


I had cut the butterfly and slid the image under it. The butterfly was so pretty. . .I couldn't bear to cover it up so I cut one side of the image just enough to slide the image panel under it.
