Saturday Rules!

the hubby and i went out to do some errands today and ended up buying a wicked new patio furniture set plus a bistro table & chair set at The Home Depot, on clearance! we thought we'd have to wait til next spring but now we have a great set to enjoy for the rest of the summer! awesome, because we plan to have a couple more bbqs before the weather turns.
happy happy joy joy, to quote Ren & Stimpy. (a very strange cartoon that my brother used to like.) quite the tangent...

so anyway, i'm happy to post this card this evening to finish off the 365 Cards challenges for the week! it's great to see your name in print when Pam posts the full-week finishers, don't you agree?! i got this fab-tastic stamp set yesterday on my jaunt to Michaels, using my last 50% off coupon. i couldn't wait to try it out!

i painted some white cardstock with silver paper paint for my background, to see how it would work out. not bad, i think! the distress inks and brilliance inks needed to be heat-set because they didn't want to dry on their own, but otherwise it was great! i stippled the paint a little with my sponge brush to get some texture.

stuff used:
white, purple & pale blue speckled cs
Hero Arts - Grid Pattern designblock
Martha Stewart - clear butterfly stamps
PSX - happy birthday!
Tim Holtz distress - broken china
Brilliance - victorian violet, crimson copper & lightning black
Cherished Memories - cherished silver paper paint
EK Success - scallop dismond border punch
Marvy - mini rectangles punch
Offray - spool o' ribbon looped purple
Forever in Time - purple buttons

cheers! crafty girl
