gifts that is for my birthday. I got 4 Distressed Inks, a magazine, refills for my ATG , and my son Erik made me a bowmaker from the directions on Amazing Paper Grace(created by Becca). Such thoughtful gifts and not a dish towel in sight(ha!-in our family ...when in doubt...buy Mom new dish towels).On Saturday, I actually used the last of my GC from Christmas and found Cardmaking & Papercraft magazine. It's from England and comes each time with some sort of a bonus. This time is is a set of Bentley Bear stamps(Feb issue). It's pricy at $9.99 in the US but with the stamps a great splurge.
To make the card, I used the car stamp from the group of stamps. It was inked with Memories Black, and edged with Distress Ink Forest Moss. I watercolored the image and created a tag ,then added some scraps of paper from Inque(it's old). A scrap of ribbon and a brad finished it off. I'm all set for the next emergency card for a guy or boy.
