Thank You

Yesterday I went to my sorority's philanthropy, then publix, then to library for hours. I have a new paper to write about The Legal Infrastructure of Sierra Leone and it's Impact on Women, focusing on the post-civil war era (post-2001). Whatdaya think? lol. It has to be 15 pages and it's due next week. So I guess I am off to the library after the gym for another delightful day of writing (get me ready for law school, I guess).

I love spring! Especially Gainesville's spring! The temperature is great, the flowers are great, everything is great. So in honor of this season (which we don't really get in Miami as we only get diferent seasons of warmness: Hot, Very Hot, Smoldering, Hot) I decided to post this card made with the Spring Solitude Bundle from Stampin up!

I had a hard time picking my hostess set from Stamp Club this month because truthfully none of them were really my taste. So I finally decided to go for Spring Solitude because it had the wheel and was very different, in its simplicity, then most of the stamp sets I own.

I had a lot of fun with this card. I used Tempting Turquoise and Cameo Coral with a touch of Old Olive, all stamped on Whisper White. I have no idea how I ended up with this color combo, but I really like it! I also wanted to add my little tip, whenever using wheels or solid images, I always stamp on Whisper White from SU! It just absorbs the ink so well.

I punched out the large circle with my Giga Marvy Uchida Circle Punch. I haven't taken the nestabilities plunge just yet! I punched out the sentiment with my SU Word Window Punch.

I used my smooshing ink pad technique to watercolor the card, *the tutorial can be found under Video Tutorials* The inside of the card was sponged with Tempting Turquoise and Cameo Coral.

ETA (6:25pm): I just got my Twinkling H20s! They are so fun! Please check back tomorrow for a video tutorial on their qualities :)
