abstract card

My friend Debra is celebrating her blogaversary. HERE  I am celebrating with her. I had an embossed piece of white cardstock that was on my desk. I was just playing with it. I watercolored randomly the squares and I splattered the cardstock with the watercolors. I then stamped the sentiment. It was a super fast card, To finish it up I took the white cardstock and mounted it onto black cardstock.

I had a friend this last weekend who had a tragic accident with a table saw. He lost a good portion of his hand. I had a thinking of you card ready to take with me to church to have everyone sign. It was such a neat experience to have that card ready. So I have decided to make sure that I always have on hand some thinking of you cards.I have a lot of girly ones so I needed to make a few that I could send to the guys.

If you have been to my blog before you have seen my quilled roses. I am offering some quilled roses as a prize to celebrate my friend's blogaversary. Leave a comment on my blog and I will chose one of the comments to win the roses.
