I can't wait to see who will win the fabulous hand stamped prizes!!

suppose they will share WITH me?

now don't despair, if you think it isn't fair!

your cash is tight & your in a plight...

you never know when you'll get a special invite...

now what's that you say? you want to play?

Nature Silhouettes ~ hostess club card

ok, I have been a very bad blogger lately :
missing in action.... I assure I've not giving up stamping, just had overload on the go ;)

here's a card I did with my SU hostess club a couple of weeks ago...
this is the result from the 're-inker' techinque that we learned ;)

along with the NATURE SILHOUETTES stamp set & stazon black ink, I used certainly celery, wild wasabi & river rock re-inker with alcohol, cotton balls & SU's glossy white paper!! also used the 'framed tulips' embossing folder & the cardstock is wild wasabi & soft suede. enjoy... R ;)
