Well, this is one of the wrider cards I have made this holiday season. Over the weekend I was playing with some of my scraps for the MIX97 to use 1 or 2 inch squares of scrap papers on your card. This is actually a paper towel that I used to blot up ink from dylusion spreys. I taped it to a 2" square of heavy cardstock. Then I took some more pieces and put glue on my fingers and rolled the scraps into those squigly lines ond glued them down. The bird is stamped twice, first on the bkg, and then just on the corner of the square. The CAS302 called for music, so I stamped the notes to go with my bird. Alittle doodling with my gold gel pen and it is done. TFL, Francie

Paper towel......I LOVE this! Francie I saw this in the gallery and immediately thought of you. This is absolutely fantastic. Your purple cloudy background is amazing and I love the stamping too. Wow, wow, wow.
Don't take your organs to heaven - heaven knows we need them here.

Who would have thought to use a paper towel! It appears to be fabric in the photo! Your design is brilliant, Francie and LOVE the way you stamped that bird! I'd love to watch you create. Each of your cards is so unique and well designed.

Francie, your cards always exhibit SUCH creativity and beg to be looked at closer to take in the special, small details. This card is a prime example....exceptional bg, small touch of metallic gold, and artistic focal point.
