another day, another card

Day 4 - Love Card
Supplies: Mist (Maya Road Pink & Gold); Rub-on (Fontwerks); Stickers used as mask (Making Memories)

To make this card, again, I used a white piece of cardstock cut to 8.5x5.5" folded in half. I first adhered the rub-on, then sprayed gold mist over the whole card. Next, I added my alphabet stickers, sprayed with pink mist, then removed the stickers and blotted the paint off the rub-on.

Quick and easy.

I realized I only took pictures on the last day of CHA. Instead of going to the convention center, we headed to Seal Beach, shopped, and ate fantastic seafood.

I can't believe I'm actually showing this photo. This is when you know your husband has had influence on you. My bird-brained Gregory loves to take pictures of birds, and I have very little affinity for the bird community. As I was taking this picture (and I also took one of a seagull), I couldn't believe I was actually pressing the shutter button. I almost couldn't bring myself to do it, but alas, the nasty pigeon won out.

I'll be hearing about this picture for weeks.

Great card april! Makes me wish I had ordered more then one color of mist. At least I have some gold tattered angels that should mix with the red I ordered!

And I agree with Heather... wonderful picture of you!

And great card idea too. I so appreciate all of your ideas.
That shadow picture is an awesome idea too when you don't have a tripod.
