A quick card using the Letterpress and a Photo of the Day

I purchased the LetterPress by LifeStyles Craft last week from a
dear friend and the other day I had came in the studio and just
wanted to play with it
within a few minutes I had done this card front
although didn't get to make the card for a few days
later. I enjoyed using the inks and plates.
I did some experimenting also just
to end up with a cracked plate...boo hoo!

Hello all,

   I wanted to post this morning before I headed out the door to help my husband this morning. The card is a little something I made using the LetterPress by LifeStyles Crafts. My dear friend was selling it and to help her out I bought it...and because I wanted to use one of these LetterPress.  Hubby told me the same thing you don't need that!! Then after a little while he said tell her to bring it over and he would pay her....lol!! Husbands sometimes!!! What I didn't need....we bought! Wink wink! Fun and easy....I had read some of the reviews and some folks weren't to happy with it but I had fun and was quite impressed with my first card front. You just need a tiny size of the ink and load the brayer up well, not heavy and roll unto the plate, and then press. It gives a very crisp nice impression. My friend said they sell them at AC Moore. The paper in the background is Graphic 45.
    The pictures of the boys are from Wednesday I had a meeting and after the meeting we went to the playground....fun fun!! It was a nice sunny cool day. The boys could stay there all the time.  They get out of the van screaming "lets play". I hope you have a fabulous weekend. Cyber Hugs, Dawn
