*friends are flowers...*

Today I finally found a little time to try the brick wall technique that was featured in last week's Weekly Inkling. It's always fun to try something new, and although it was a bit time consuming, it was definitely worth it. Sure, it's not one of those techniques that lend themselves to mass production or quick cards, but it's certainly eye-catching and probably a bit addictive too. I dug out some beautiful stamps that have been sorely neglected, AND I was able to use some papers that have been hoarded away in my collection for way too long. This technique is perfect for a shabby and distressed look. Right up my alley!

*happy anniversary*

I love Basic Grey's Lemonade collection... which probably explains why I've hoarded it for so long. This particular pattern is my favorite. It has such an antique feel to it. I also adore these two chickens. They're designed by Anna Wight, who just happens to be another favorite of mine. For some reason, Farmer and Adell are one of my "go to" stamps for anniversary cards. Probably because they make such a cute couple and something about them says they've been happily married for so many years they've started to look alike. ;)

It's absolutely gorgeous here today, and it looks like we're in for a beautiful weekend. Hope it's beautiful and sunny in your neck of the woods!
