Can you believe it?!

I actually made a card! Two cards even! But I'm saving the 2nd one for later otherwise I'll have nothing else to post!So a pretty simple birthday card. I mostly wanted to use my new Greeting Farm stamp, Skater Ian, that I got from the Die Cuts R Us sale. He's colored with pencils and baby oil. I basically picked random colors without even looking at paper. I can see why it would help to plan ahead. Or to find some card sketches before hand too, but oh well, hopefully now I can just get it in the mail on time. Anyhow, I was thinking I could somehow make a skate ramp, but ended up just using an oval instead. (It would help if I got all the pieces together before sticking things down too, argh!). I actually got to use some of my toys, I mean tools. Like the edge distresser, although next time I think I'm going to try inking those edges. And my crop-a-dile with the extra large eyelets from We R Memory Keepers. These eyelets actually set a lot better. I had some other brand eyelets that would set unevenly with the crop-a-dile. Other than that, the "happy birthday" sentiment is from the Birthday Basics set from PTI.
