I tried a new technique on this card called the masking tape technique. You use painter's tape, not masking tape actually, add ink to the sticky side and place it on card stock to make the background. I used my Tim Holtz mini distress inks for this one but can see many more in my future as it was a very simple, easy and quick card.

Please make sure you visit all of the girlfriend's blogs for inspiration and then link up your birthday cards at Little Red Wagon. I can't wait to see what you have for me this week.
Before I go, I am sure my regular visitors can see some big changes to my blog. I want to give a big shout out to my friend Joanne for the new look. It is so fresh and clean and I just love it.
I also want to share some other news. Another friend has begun to sell my cards at her booth in St. Jacob's Farmer's Market (Ontario, Canada). If you are local, please come check out OH THE SCRAPABILITIES. She is there every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday for the Summer.
Have a wonderful Wednesday, my friends.
