It uses the Unity stamp set, Modern Chit Chat. I thought it was perfect for a young lady. Tell me one young person that age that isn't attached to their phone! I tried a new-to-me technique on the screen of the phone. I ironed wax paper inbetween two pieces of glossy cardstock after I'd crinkled the wax paper up into a ball, then straightened it out again. I found a tutorial for it on Splitcoast Stampers. You can find the link here. It is very easy to do, once you find your iron and dust it off, LOL. I inked the glossy cardstock with Tim Holtz distress ink in Broken China. The background papers are Fancy Pants Hopscotch. I just love this collection. I have about 2 inches left of this paper. I've used it more than any collection I've ever purchased. I used some Studio Calico spray ink in Calico White on the brown background, used a corner rounder to make a scallop, cut a notch to make a banner, and added some Stickles on the heart and some Mark Richards bling. I hope she likes her card!
Then, I made a couple minor variations and sent this one to my BFF:
She and I do more texting and messaging than actual conversing. Occasionally we'll email, but usually from our phones. So, you don't have to be a 20-something woman to be attached to your phone. It happens at 40-something and 50-something, too. Mine's next to my bed when I sleep at night. Am I the only one so attached to my phone? Please tell me I'm not!
There is still plenty of snow in my yard, but there are signs of spring: robins, bluebirds, sandhill cranes, great blue herons, red-winged blackbirds, and geese have all returned to the neighborhood. Three sandhill cranes were standing on the ice on the lake across the road from where I live this morning. They looked like they were waiting. Waiting for spring like the rest of us...
