“With enough butter, anything is good.” Julia Child



I found the quote on Margot Potters blog this morning via a twitter comment.  I think it describes me pretty well. I belong to twitter and it has turned out to be very interesting following other creative souls throughout their days.  It is like a tiny insight to their lives.  Some I have met and others I have not.  It also made me think of this card.  I created it for the Clearsnap booth for CHA.  Clearsnap is also know as the fabulous makers of Fluid chalk ink – Colorbox.  I love their colors and the quality of pigments.  Stamps are all Unity and the paper is Prism.  I love the orange peel texture. I used my pazzles for the scalloped shapes.
