hey sweet cheeks.

Hi friends! I'm back from sunny, wonderful Cancun. {a little burnt, but totally worth it} I had a blast. Jet skis on the ocean, parasailing and being buried in sand with a 2 foot iguana charging at me. What could be better?

Anyway, I'm here today to post a card I submitted for a recent Paper Crafts Magazine call. Annette is having a link up party to show cards that didn't get picked, and I love that! I love seeing everyone's take on the call. I've very excited to see this issue. I was lucky enough to have 3 cards picked up!

I'm posting a card I submitted to the Just Add Water category. I kind of knew in the back of my mind this one wouldn't get chosen, but it was one of my favorites I created. A good crafty friend sent me this stamp and I couldn't wait to color her up! I used Tim Holtz Distress Markers and a water brush pen {one of my favorite coloring techniques}. The sentiment stamp is from Unity.

I'm also entering this into the Moxie Fab World Challenge #60: Make a Card with a Window. Fabby!

Have a fabby day! xoxo

Hey Erin,
Love the card. Really cool.
I was watching old you tube vids and I wasn't aware that you had a paper collection or stamps.
I was wondering if you still had that collection still available for purchase? If so I would love to buy the stamps and paper!

Thanks Janette Ramos.
