On Tour

I'm heading out to Georgia this morning for a book tour.  Yes, an honest-to-goodness book tour...just not mine.  Gotcha!  My precious friends are promoting their books No Safe Haven and Race Against Time.  In preparation for the trip, I had to make a couple birthday cards.  This first one sorta, kinda follows the OWH Color Challenge.  Sorta.  Hey...it has yellow and green in it!  This also fits into the Heart 2 Heart: Embossing Technique Challenge.


Stamps are from CTMH's Pemberley Workshop on the Go.  I love, love, love this swirly stamp and knew I wanted to try an emboss resist technique with it.  I find I get a better resist if I use clear embossing powder as opposed to white, but either will work.  I used CTMH ink in Honey, Spring Green, Crystal Blue and Hollyhock.  The pins are also from CTMH although discontinued now.  The sentiment is from the Art Philosophy set.

The ribbon is from Hobby Lobby (of course!!),and the pearls are from Michaels (I made them curl on my own).

Oh...and in other news, for the first time since I started this blog I can report that I have lost weight.  I'm not keeping track precisely because I'm trying to focus on just eating well and exercising regularly.  BUT, I am going to need new pants soon!!

Well, gotta run.  I have a few things left to pack before heading to the airport.

Until next time,
Becca
