:34 My goodness, I’ve been sick.

For the life of me I don’t know what it was, but I couldn’t get up off of the couch for about 48 hours.   My husband thought he could cheer me up by taking me to Hobby Lobby and even going inside with me.  I found a good place to just perch but refused to spend money.  He was beside himself because he knew something was terribly wrong.   Well I’m all good now, and I think we will have to rerun that HL visit. :13

I’m back with a new card, and it looks very similar to something I did recently.  It just so happens that when I did the first dress card, this is the test scrap I played around with before I did the "real" card (do you all do that too?)  Then I was in Walmart recently and saw a card that had a similar sentiment – it had me rolling in the aisle.  So I nabbed it for this card, admittedly cased, but only for personal use.  The added bonus is I can submit it for Splitcoaststampers Sketch Challenge 170.

The above picture is the inside of the card.  

Hmmmmm, it kinda starts out sounding wicked, but once you flip to the inside, it’s alllllll goooood.  Yep, a snarky card you can only send to your best bud girlfriends.  Thanks for stopping by, I missed posting and hope to be back at it this week.

    Becca, glad you are on the road to recovery. I love this card and there is so much truth to it. LOL!!! But definitely one you could only share with your best buds. Thanks for sharing. :-)ReplyCancel


I was so ready for a cutesy card!  I hunted through my unmounteds and found these three little adorable insects.  I colored each up with my Copics and then found my stash of American Crafts Ribbon which made picking the accent colors easy!   

Have a great day and don’t let anybody fool ya!

    Wouldn’t you know it… I just saw a message about Copic markers on the Creating Keepsakes Message Board, came over here for my daily Becka Feeken fix, and saw that you used them on this adorable card! These are new to me. How do you like them?ReplyCancel

    Just love all of your work even though I’m not much of a stamper – so varied they are too !

    I’ve passed on an Art award to you – do hop over to my blog to get it when you can !ReplyCancel

    Becca, is there any style that you can’t do beautifully? You did an amazing job with “cute” here, and just below it is a classic vintage that equally lovely!ReplyCancel

    Another wonderful creation … check out my blog … I awarded you the Arte y Pico award:


It has been a glorious weekend with weather that is starting to give me a full blown case of spring fever.  I was inside for a bit to play with toys and I pulled out a set of stamp pads that have graced my shelf, unopened, for more than two years.   I had fallen in love with {the thought of} these Tim Holtz Distress Inks by Ranger Industries.  As I cut open the shrink wrap, I cringed thinking that surely my investment had dried up and I was really fretting because I did not purchase any of the reinkers. 

Yay!! When I opened them, they were nice and juicy, even though they sat idle for so long.  I wanted to use them to try to create an antique looking background for this stamp so I pulled out my stipple brushes and pounced away with several colors.  The card is relatively simple…I thought it might be a little bit too plain so I layered the sections of the diamond to give the card a little bit of dimension.

    hears another beautiful card, I have some of those stamp pads too, and need to use them, now i have an idea!! I like the cut of the card also, its neat. just right for that quote stamp. keep em coming.

  • heather the mooseloverApril 3, 2008 - 11:53 am

    Elegant card- I love how you used the Distress Inks (I bought mine 3 years ago with the reinkers and I like all of them but the one pad that hasn’t been opened!) The layered is a nice effect with the distressedness (I made up my own word!)ReplyCancel
