Last of my SIM Cards

This final card from my last round of SIM is also a CASE from the Idea Book & Catalog.  You can find the original card on page 98.  It was a fun one to CASE because it got my customers coloring the image using their markers, and there's just something about coloring that even a grown woman (or man) can enjoy like a kid!  I think it's kind of magical to see the stamped image after you've done all that hard work coloring and not letting the markers bleed, and huffing before finally pressing it down on the card stock.  Almost like a surprise - seeing how your coloring turned out.  It was a pain folding that Daffodil Delight DSP though - I couldn't get it straight for anything, and don't like that it's not more parallel to the layer of Real Red CS.  Oh well, my OCD will have to just be quiet!!! ;)

Anyway, enjoy, and have a great weekend!  My final 3 cards (everything stamping-related is packed up and ready for our move now, so it will again be a while before I can post - FOLLOW ME so that you'll get updates without having to constantly check in!!) will be posted next week.  Have a GREAT weekend everyone and thanks for stopping by!  I appreciate your visits and your comments so much!  If you have any questions about what I used to make the card simply leave me a comment and I'll get back with you.

  1. Beautiful card, Marie. Good luck with the move!

  2. Beautiful card Marie. I love all the bright, cheery colors. Can I ask you what you use for lighting to take your pictures? I am struggling with mine a bit. Thanks!

  3. Your card is lovely, Marie!!!

  4. The blog looks informative. I came across Rubber Stamps which has been a professional rubber stamp
    supplier in Virginia since 1964.


Thanks for taking the time to leave me a comment. I appreciate it and thank you for adding a little sunshine to my day.
