This card is dedicated to those brave men and women who are serving our Country.
Let’s get out our Stampin’ Up Markers and color a while. That is what I do when I have a ruff day. Coloring makes me relax. . . . . .Ahhhh. I notice during my workshops when my students are coloring they get very quite. Coloring takes concentration. I think that is why it is relaxing. When you are concentrating on coloring you cannot be concentrating on anything else.
If you are like me you have the matching ink pad, marker and card stock for every Stampin’ Up color they have. It makes it so very easy to coordinate your projects.
Hang out a while with me and relax while I take you through this project.
