Mail Art: Milliner Misses

RRD Mail art 002
What a day this has been!  The dog got me up earlier than I planned this morning, 5:05am ugh! Thinking I would let her out then go back to bed for an other 30 minutes.  Well the coffee pot had already started ( it is on a timer) and it smelled soooo good, and it was so nice an cool on the patio and well, I just stayed up.  So that meant an early time with Betsy and I decided to give the sketch laying there a try.  It is a Rogue Redhaed Designs Sketch.  So keeping with the Rogue Redheads I used one of their Milliner Misses Stamps stamps, and three of their Behind the Scenes Stamps to make a post card…yep! More Mail ART.  I used a heavy photograph paper and Timber StazOn ink, and a little masking. I mounted this onto a white c.s. for mailing.  It is a real post card and will be mailed tomorrow. There is no light blue, that is just compliments of the scanner.
Oh ya, the scanner didn’t want to work this morning either, so in fooling with it, the PC started giving me all kinds of warnings.  So there was a LOOOONG period of “do nothing” while a complete scan took place.
Everything got cleaned up, the scanner works again and the post card got finished. 
This sketch challenge runs for the whole month so pop over to Rogue Redhead Designs and join the fun. The winner gets a $15.00 voucher!!

Before signing out of here I do want to welcome Martha, Carol, Milissa and Glenda to my little group.
If you took the time to read my post then please leave a comment and I will return the favor, we all like to know we are being heard read and not just babbling with the key board....LOL
