Black Ink Friday


Well the challenge over at notimetostamp is to use black ink on your card.Grabbed my Versa Fine black onynx ink and went to work.My cardstock is slate blue with a black mat behind my white main piece. I just got a few new Stampin Up sets and decided to try a couple of stamps out. I love this filigree type stamp for my background design and once again Stampin Up came up with a beautiful sentiment...The Happiest business in the world is that of making Friends. I sure like it better then ..there's no business like show business. And making friends is a wonderful pass time. Want to be my freind?? Oh, but you already are aren't you???
UPDATE ON THE "OLD DUDE" AT DOLLAR GENERAL. Well the old dude is out of his neck brace and into ....are you ready for this??? A pair of WHITE patent leather loafers.
He is also back to his hubba hubba mode. Help, save this poor old lady, who can't run as fast as she needs to.When I want to attract a nice old man, no luck and here is this old coot trying to flirt with me... why am I so darn good looking!
Good golly it's the weekend again so you know what that means don't you? Well don't just sit home moping, go out and have some fun. See you next week.

Oh my goodness gracious -- this is SO gorgeous!! I LOVE this set and actually have it myself, but haven't used it much yet! Talk about inspiration to pull it out and ink it up -- this is FABULOUS!!! So glad you played again -- thanks much!!!

ooohh! Filigree!! One of my very favorite things with one of my very favorite inks. BEAUTIFUL card, Pat! Maybe you just need to drop some Versafine Black Onyx Ink on those white patent leather loafers to slow the Old Dollar Dude down. Nah, that would be a waste of good ink. Toss a banana peel on 'em. Happy Weekend, Friend!
