Technique Junkies 'Just One’ Swap for April

ShellySchmidtApril06FCDdigifloralspraystarchnPE

Each month, the Technique Junkies has a swap called the Just one. It is a 1-4-1 swap where I am assigned a partner, and we swap cards using a TJ Technique. It is another great way of seeing, touching or trying something new.  I used more of the Spray Starch background that I recently made to create this card.  I made this on Sunday- inspired by the Featured Stamper Gloria  on Splitcoaststampers! Here is the link to the Featured stamper on SCS for this week…… I wanted to wait until my Just One partner received her card before I posted this one……….
I used Blue Russet Pearl Ex
Image-Digi by Firecracker Designs by Pamela, sentiment FCD
Nestability circle, dragonfly brad by Markies Finest papers. I colored the flower with Copic Markers.

Here is the card I recieved:

My partner is Hewitt Hulse. She used the Chalk Lines Technique- which I have never tried (yet), and used Chalk Pencils.  How can you not love the House Mouse image….! 
If you want more info regarding the Technique Junkies HERE is the link. You can get the newsletter on-line only- just one option…..  Tell Her I sent you!  Maybe we can be Just One partners next!!!
If you want to try out digital images to see if you like them (and want to try images that look like real rubber stamps), check out Pamela’s Blog- she offers a free digital image each week- tell her I sent you!
Off to clean…rather…pick up….. before the cleaning ladies arrive……. What to do with all of these balloons that Stephi’s friends put in her room for her birthday last week…….. yep- they are still all there…
