Well, ok I give up....

NOOO! Not on card making, NEVER! This is waay too much fun! And meeting all the wonderful people online that I have, nope not ANYtime soon! I mean give up on getting a good picture outside! The rain is refusing to go away! So I took this in my dark house. I never realized how dark my house's lighting is until I started card making, lol!

I made this card using my new Unity Stamp Co. So and So loves...that I WON last Thursday during Hip Hop Thursday! Its a blast, you all should come..chances to win free stamps and lots of good chatting! It's in the Unity company forum on SCS! Ok, heres the card, and again, so sorry its soo dark:

I was trying to make them look like birch trees...did I kinda succeed? LOL! I used this weeks color challenge on SCS, blush blossom, close to cocoa, and ruby red. I kinda like these colors together myself. I stamped with close to cocoa ink on the blush blossom with the tree stamp. Then used my colored pencils to add some brown. I then took my white gel pen and just kinda went horizontally back and forth trying to make it look like the bark. I had to put DH and my initials, or USED to be initials on it...that spot just screamed for some initials to me, lol!

Card Details:
Stamps: So and So loves.... from Unity Stamp Company, Technique Tuesday peek-a-boo set for the xo and love
Papers: All SU! cardstock
Accessories: SU! hodge podge hardware, ribbon from PTI, paper piercing tool and pad, white gel pen, colored pencils and OMS.

I hope it doesnt look too bad being so dark, I know it bugs me to death though...If the sun decides to come back out in the next few days, Im going to take a better picture for sure, lol! I looked at radar and this stuff is just hanging around, coming up from the gulf:

A picture of the radar over my area for anybody interested...see me? Im the one floating down the red river, rofl!!
Thanks for taking the time to stop by and hope you are having a wonderful day! And dont forget tomorrow is my last day (sad face) as Mel's guest designer, so will be posting another Tee!! I still havent got tired of this set!

You are too funny, putting your initials on the trees. I thought it looked like some kind of wood before reading. I see the birch now that you say it. Lovely.

Send some rain over here. It has been a while.
