Recessed Window Card

Morning... Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Okay...I've been missing for a few days but I've had a good reason. We bought a new computer. Our old desk top was lets just say "old". You know that commercial where people come in to rob the house and they leave the computer behind? That would have been us. lol It's taking awhile to get everything re-loaded.

Past week-end we also went to Fort Worth, Tx. Visited with some of Kevin's family which was fun. Once I get the photos uploaded to the new computer I'll post a few from our adventure.

Today's card is a recessed window style. I used the new Angel Trumpet Flower set with the co-ordinating die - Spring Medley.

Flowers were colored with copics but the hummingbird was colored with Twinkling H2o's on watercolor paper.

Copic colors used:
YG 11 - Mignonette
YG23 - New Leav
RV10 - Pale pink or RV000 - Pale Purple (use either or both)
RV21 - Light Pink
R85 - Rose Red or E04 - Lipstick Natural (use either or both)

Instructions for the recessed card can be found at Splitcoaststampers. Patterned paper was Costco package. The inner pink layer embossed with the bubble folder. Focal image raised up with pop dots.

I will be back tomorrow with a card using La Blanche stamps. has a sale on their cricut cartridges. There was a whole selection of cartridges made exclusively for Walmart. I've used Lacey Labels a few times on my projects and some of you were having trouble locating that cartridge. Cricut has it for 27.99. Walmart prices here are $39.00 and I must say at that price they have not been moving. I'm hoping they will get tired of having the same stock on the shelves and drop the prices.

Finally I'm waiting for the little brown truck and the UPS man to come a calling....I have something new arriving today...can you guess what it is????

See you tomorrow and I'll tell you then.

I love your card, it's very pretty! Did you get your Costco paper recently? I've got to go see what they have at my Costco... :)

Thanks for the heads up on the sale at! I've been waiting for a break in price for the Walmart cartridges. A couple of the seasonal ones I've had my eye on are also at a better price. I usually check them out regularly, but haven't this week. I would have missed this sale!
