Having fun at House of Cards

Hey. my cat is peeking through the last photo! Cool! I found House of Cards and I can't get enough. They have a monthly sketch- but they offer it each week so that you can create in the new style requested. Cas, Classic, Cute, and Vintage. I've joined in with CAS already (last week) now I'm catching up with my Classic style (Sending card) and Cute (ice cream).

These last two Simon Says Stamp Card Stamp kits have been my favorite of all stamps! The sending card is watercolor and has lot's of photo invisible Wink of Stella all over. The ice cream card is done with pastels, and the raised element is completely covered with clear glitter. It's base panel has stickles and wink of Stella to add "ice crystals". There's even some years old pink thread to add a little craziness. I've had those pastels since I was a kid.

Just having a little fun in between my 2 challenges, AAA Cards & 101: Watercolor, and taking care of my new chickens, Penny, Cleo and Princess Leia. My husband may think I'm running a farm with 4 cats, 1 dog and 3 chickens. Wait until he finds out I want 2 baby goats too!

Peace & Hugs, Victoria
