TLC177 Tender Thoughts



Good Morning everyone!!!

I'm back home and let me tell you - it feels great to sleep in my own bed again!!!

We had a wonderful trip up to Virgina. The girls had fun seen their *Oma* (german word for grandma) again!!!

I was the happiest camper when we arrived at *Archivers* - surprisingly I was pretty good - LOL!!! I'll show off some new stuff soon!!!

Also I wanted to come back home because I knew I had boxes and boxes of goodies waiting for me....don't you just love that!!!

A couple of weeks ago Betsy Griffin the owner of *Innovative Stamp Creations* had asked me to be a *Guest Architect* for the month of July and of course I've said yes....Well - today I have the opportunity to show off some of her gorgeous Stamp Set's.

I have made this card for the *Try a New Technique Challenge* #177. The details can be seen right here.

Talking about new goodies - I have received the*NEW*Stampin Up In Colors for 2008/2009 and I'm loving each and every one. These colors I have used for the card are called Tangerine Tango and Kiwi Kiss. Aren't they beautiful???

For my main image I have used the *Nature Silhouettes I* Set. I have inked it with the Tangerine Tango, Kiwi Kiss and the Riding Hood Red colors. The butterfly is from the
*Beautiful Butterflies* Set and it was inked in Black Stazon. I have colored it with the same Inks and raised it with a Stampin Dimensional.

Next I have added the Ribbon and the Silver Brads. The main image was also raised with Stampin Dimensionals. Last I have stamped the sentiment which is also from the *Nature Silhouette I* Set.

Hope you like it and ~TFL~?!?
