Artistic Etchings… Another Introductory Brayer Class Card

With a little dazzle and sparkle too!  This card is part of the introductory brayer classes here in Jacksonville, Florida this month and next.  Featuring the Artistic Etchings and Lovely as  A Tree Stamp Set, it’s a perfect Parisian Winter scene!  Snow was even added to the Eifel Tower… doesn’t the whole scene have a calm and serene allure, emit silence and romance?  I think it would make a great romantic invitation to a secret anniversary rendezvous, don’t you?


The smaller photo corner punch was added to the lower left of the image, and then I added NEW Basic Rhinestone Jewels from page 188 of the 2010/11 Stampin’ Up! Idea Book and Catalog.  I’m really loving both the Basic Rhinestone and Classic Pearl Jewels… they come in three sizes and 150 per package (50 each) for just $4.95… be sure to stock up, as I expect these to fly out of inventory!!

I’m counting the days until my DD arrives home from China!  She has been quite global for the past year.. studying in three different universities around the world!  Talk about living vicariously through your kids!  My DH and I have never been to Europe, and it’s been a real treat listening to her tales, receiving postcards, and small packages.  We’re also very thankful for Skype and the electronic age, which allows us to speak with her almost daily… now if our DS could just figure out how to use Skype… (he’s the brainiac child, so I’m not buying it, how about you?)

So.. here’s our DD in Mutianyu, walking along the Great Wall of China…

Never fear you are welcome on my PC! What a beautiful card (beautiful daughter too but that's a story for another time) that's so perfectly CASEable now that I have those stamp sets.

Sons always have an excuse don't they...unfortunately without Skype its going to be hard to hear them right??
