Celebrate in Style

Hey Friends! Are you the same person that you were in high school or growing up? Me? Not even close. LOL! I was pretty wild. . .sorta a delinquent. Shocking? LOL! Actually, I was the same person on the inside but it wasn't expressed outwardly. Only in my mid-20s is when I decided to express the person on the inside outwardly. . .the boring me. I'm pretty square and I felt when I was growing up that I was rather ordinary. . .I still am but that's okay. Ordinary is good.

Considering I was such a delinquent in high school, it's surprising that I ended up in college and obtained my Bachelors degree. Friends in high school would be surprised. I hated high school . . .I found it boring but college was a different story. I loved it. I met interesting people who valued the same things as I did. . .they were like me (the real me) so it was easy to just be myself.


Anyway. . .on to my card. . .did you know that Sizzix sell stamps now. I found this Sizzix stamp set at JoAnns. Unfortunately, there was only one set. It was a cute set so I bought it.

Hey I love this color combo. I wanted to play around with a different color combo because it seems my cards are either pink/brown, pink/green, blue/green, blue/yellow. . .etc. What do you think of this color combo? I like it.

I colored my image with my Copic Markers and added the primas.

No sketch today. . .the layout is too simple that I didn't think it required a sketch.

Anyway, hope you all have a wonderful day!!

Stamps: Sizzix, MFT
Papers: MME designer paper, SU Cameo Coral, Taken with Teal
Ink: Copic Markers, Sakura gel pen

Maria, I am not the same, but do revert to my high school self from time to time. I was very quiet. Kids called me a "wallflower". I'm not so quiet now LOL!!

Love the primas on the purses. I didn't know that Sizzix sold stamps.
