Gerti's Story

This is the Story:
  • This card is for my good friend Cindy aka Mothermark on SCS. Cindy is today's featured stamper on SCS - congratulations Cindy you deserve it!!!!!! I have long been an admirer of her artwork.
  • When Cindy posts a card to the SCS gallery she always starts her explanation with "This is my story" and normally has something hilarious to tell us. She normally posts just before I go to bed so I like to call these my bedtime stories.
  • I recently ordered some stamps from Eat Cake Graphics, while browsing their catty I came across this chicken stamp which made me think of Cindy - as she works at the 'Egg & I' Restaurant. I knew I had to buy it and make a card for Cindy.
  • Cindy is very close to Gerti!!!
  • You can find the card I used to CASE this card here. I made the following changes:
    • changed the image used;
    • changed the colors;
    • changed the orientation of the card;
    • substituted the "Gerti" piece for the kite.
