Dirty Girl Challenge – Jenn

Dirty Girl - Jenn

So, yesterday, I’m sitting in my office on the 2nd floor of a “crappy” County Building. All of a sudden, we hear a BOOM! and the entire 2nd floor just starts rolling…… Now, I don’t know if it’s my age….. but when I was younger, earthquakes never scared me before. This time, I told myself to remain calm, but my legs started getting wobbly. I don’t know if this one was longer than I’m use to, but it seemed to have lasted forever. I was just glad it was over….. but then came the part that was even harder….. no cell service for a while. My sis just moved into a new place and didn’t have a land line phone. I was a little nervous about my 18 month old nephew with all of the boxes and stuff piled high from their move. But luckily, all is well with them! 🙂

When I got home, my mom asked me for a wedding card. I looked in my tiny stash of cards and noticed that there was nothing in there for a wedding…. hmmmmm…. does that mean that I actually have to stamp AGAIN? LOL! I had no mojo after dealing with the earthquake and the meetings that arise from it. So, I went to Splitcoast for some inspiration. It took all of 24 seconds for me to find the Dirty Girl Challenges and I immediatly spoted Jenn Balcer’s challenge. I knew exactly which paper to grab, now I justed needed a wedding image. Within 1 minute, I found this cute MFT stamp called Heart’s Galore and thought it would be perfect.  I used my Scor-Pal for my dry embossing along the edge of my white cardstock.

It was awesome to be able to whip out a card in less than 15 minutes and be totally happy with it…. Thanks Jenn for the inspiration. I popped up the images with some Foam Tape, the 1/16th” tape for the celery cardstock to the black scalloped cardstock and then the 1/8″ for the Black scalloped to the rest of the card. And isn’t this CindyRibbon gorgeous? I think I need to restock on this beautiful ribbon.

And of course my card would not be complete with my new love…. Ranger’s Glossy Glaze. Close Up

Thanks to everyone that e-mailed, called, texted to make sure that I was ok! 🙂

    Hi Joy!!! I really like this card… what dp did you use? Also, can you tell me what the glossy glaze is? I’m always curious about new things to play with. Hope you’re doing well. Oh, btw, the earthquake was really bad in Yorba Linda. Every rm in my house was a mess. My kitchen had a lot of broken glasses on the floor — very scary!!!
