*thanks a million*

Monday's Technique Lover's Challenge over at Splitcoast Stampers was to make a crimped envelope card, and I thought it would be fun to give it a try. I improvised and used a 4-bar envelope instead of an A2 and my swiss dots embossing folder instead of a crimper. For some reason, I'm "challenged" when it comes to using a crimper. I can never seem to get the paper to feed through the crimper straight, so when it comes out, the lines are slanted! I'm sure there must be a trick to it, or maybe it's just me and nobody else has that problem! Anyhoo... I was excited to use some of my new Whipper Snapper stamps. I've had them a while, but just haven't had the chance to ink them up yet. These images are Anna Wight designs. Her stamps are amazing and lots of fun to watercolor! This is going to my mom. She loves chickens, so I think she'll like it.
