Yippee for Fridays!

I'm off this weekend, so I'm happy Friday is here. I wanted to share a few cards with you today. I have a Swiss Dots Tutorial posted at the DCRU DT Blog, so check it out. Here's a card I did for my tutorial using the Swiss Dots folder and a rolling pin as my embosser:



I used Papertrey Ink stamps, ribbon, and paper; Swiss Dots Folder, Spellbinder Nestabilities, and Copics. And I've got some advice, don't be afraid to use your pens and experiment with colors. I've been playing with my Copics & Martha Stewart markers and it's just amazing how you can blend colors.

Here's another card I made using the same supply list. I used my Cuttlebug this time and the Swiss Dots folder. I embossed directly on my stamped image and inverted my dots to give it more texture:



And last but not least....I wanted to share what I'm reading with you:



OK, so this will make the 3rd time, but I'm just so addicted to the Twilight series. I want to reread Twilight & New Moon before the new movie comes out in November. Just in case I missed something the first couple of times : )

You are so funny!!! I can see me in some of the things you say...makes Mom proud. These cards are beautiful, and your coloring is WOW!!! When I think you can't do any better you show up with something more. Just looking at the cover of the book makes me want to read them again. I'm stuck with Vampire Academy for now!!! Couldn't put it down last night. lol
