Life is a beautiful ride. . .

Last weekend I was cleaning my stamp studio, and doing some reorganizing, gathering retired products to sell and I came across this card that I made a while back, that I had forgotten to post.

It is a super simple card that says it all.  I used the Beautiful Ride stamp set and the You're Sublime stamp set.  I colored the images with copic markers and sponged the ground and background areas.

I got a RAK card!

 I received this beautiful card in the mail last week.  It was designed by Andrea Sharp. 

I belong to a group of demonstrators called SUDSOL....which stands for Stampin' Up! Demonstrators Sharing On Line.  

Periodically they do card swaps....this card was from one of their swaps....and got mailed to me as a RAK- random act of kindness!  

What a great surprise in my mailbox!

Timeless Textures Background. . .

I made this card using the Timeless Textures stamp set to create a soft background for my vivid butterflies.  

The butterflies are from the Papillon Potpourri stamp set on page 72 and the greeting is from the Perfect Pairs stamp set.
