I’ve Got a Green Thumb


 I promised yesterday I would share with you the cards I’m making for the “end-of-the-season” stamp club card swaps.  Card swaps at the end of the club season is something I always look forward to.  It’s so much fun to see everyone’s personalities come out in the cards they create for swapping.  Does my personality come out with the one I created?

I took inspiration from Annette Stewart over at Ink, Paper, Scissors Rock!  I loved the background she created so just changed up the layout a bit.  Why mess with perfection I say!

In creating 16 of these backgrounds, I have quite the green thumb – it may take a couple of days and many washings to get the Old Olive ink out of my fingers!
