What's Tole?

I have a few hybrid cards to share today.

The first one is from the Tole kit by Polka Dot Pixels. And I confess I have never heard of tole before. Toile yes, but not tole. So I googled it and found it to be what I've known as one stroke painting. Anyway, I love this kit! I also made my now blog banner out of it. The last one was so 2010, tee hee! For this card I used one of the papers overlayed with one of the digital die cuts. The stamps are the Hero Arts Home With Flourish (heat embossed) and a sentiment from All Occasion Messages.

And this one uses patterned paper from Lauren Reid's Cloud 9 kit and a stamp from Vol. 25 Stamping Bella. I made this for the Splitcoast Resolutions challenge. I have a lot of resolutions but this card has to do with getting back to a healthy lifestyle after the holidays. Too much rich foods and no exercise has me not feeling like myself.

Thanks for the visit.
