Love me do

Hiya folks,

How is everyone enjoying the heat.. I am getting baked here what with such high levels of humidity and unbearable heat.. Staying awake is a pain.. All day long I feel like staying inside my air conditioned room. Ala, that would have been perfect but not possible

I made a double twisted easel card last week using my brand new whimsy stamps... Whimsy stamps are just too cute and have some adorable images which you color..I even noticed a few things regarding inks this time... I recently purchased the rangers archival ink pad and trust me... it is a must buy for people who like coloring... The image is crisp and gives such an even tone color finish it is unbelievable.. Try another with a memento ink and see the difference and you would understand what I mean...

I think I have talked enough for today... Now I shall go on and share the pics...

the card lying flat

There is a tag behind the image panel. I have stuck the PP only on 3 sides keeping one side open to slide the tag in.

So this is it... A very cute card... and looks adorable in real. Not too happy with the boy's coloring but I aim to improve on it...
