Floral Border

I had this idea for the flowers on this card from the one I did the other day. I finally got a chance to stamp the card today. I really like how this turned out. I cut the flower pot out and popped it up on dimensionals. The sun is bright so its casting the shadow on it. This stamp set is from Flourishes This set is just wonderful. You can click on the picture for a closer look.

FLLC Flower for Regina

A group of us on SCS do a weekly card for someone on the Need a Lift Thread. This week Debi choose Regina to send a card to. Regina had gastric bypass surgery a few weeks ago and is recovering from the surgery at home. She could use a smile. Our requirements this week were to use a flower on the card and a uplifting sentiment. I think this sentiment just about sums it up. I love these pearls, the just add that last little bit I think.

Have a blessed Wednesday.

Summer Flourishes

I got my new Flourishes yesterday and I was very excited to play last night. I had some problems though. My hands and the papers would not get what was in my head onto the card. So frustrating. I had these grand ideas in my head and then ugh... I hate when that happens. But never fail... I will try try again. lol
The wine table is the one that turned out the closest to what I had thought out. The wine bottle and glasses are up on dimensionals. I sponged all around with barely banana to give it a night light hue. But its very cloudy today and I can't get a good picture.
I got this wonderful dp for the summer snowflakes from the boys for my birthday. They did so good this year picking out papers. Well off to try again.
Thanks for looking and Have a blessed day!

Monday Mouse Madness Bassinet

Good morning! Today is the first day of the House Mouse and Friends new Design Team Emma put together. Be sure to check out the link and play along with us. The DT put together some fun cards for you to see. The challenge was to create a card with the theme New. New house, new job, new baby etc. I needed a baby card so that is my new a baby. hee hee You can use any House mouse, happy hoppers or gruffies images for you cards. So come play and leave a link to your card on the House Mouse and Friends blog. EDIT: Prize is being offered for those who participate in the challenge offered by Emma.

For my Monday madness challenge Angel and I thought we would make the base of our card something other than standard. Since I was doing a baby card I thought I would give a bassinet card a try. I think it turned out pretty cute. It is a 5x7 size card and I free hand drew the base. The paper weaving took sometime though. lol You can click on the picture if you would like a closer view. You can see Angel's card in the morning here So come play with us, leave a comment here with a link. Or if you upload to SCS put TWNHPY in the search for us to find your creation.

Its that time of year again for me. I will be picking beans and then canning this morning, but I will check out all the creations in the afternoon. I hope you all have a blessed day!

Flowers for you

Well canning season has started for me so my stamping time is limited since canning takes up a lot of my time. But I did get two cards done last night. I am very pleased with how they turned out also. My new Flourshes stamps are not here yet, but that is a good thing since I wouldn't be able to use them much right now.

Make sure you check back tomorrow for the first day of the House Mouse Monday Challenge new Design Team I am on. Its so fun and I think you will love what everyone has come up with.

Have a blessed day!

Monday Mouse Madness Rain or shine

Hello and glad you made it to Monday Mouse Madness. This stamp is just so sweet and makes me smile. I love the one tasting the rain, what a rebel. hee hee Just a way to start the week off with a smile, with a House Mouse card. I added liquid glass to the rain drops to make it look wet, click on the picture to see it a little better.

My friend Angel made a sample here So come play with us. Post a comment here with your link to your HM card, or use the code TWNHPY on SCS if you have a gallery there. Its fun and why not start your week off with a smile. Hugs and have a blessed week!

Laundry Day

Well paper laundry that is, hee hee. I told DH that I needed to get some shirts done. I didn't specifiy what shirts I meant. lol Anyways... Not much time to stamp but I did get two things done. My MIL wanted a card with some butterflies on it for a friend. Done.
Then she also wanted me to make some sort of small punch card for her store. I thought these would make super cute punch cards. She has mostly women who use the punch cards, so why not have some fun with it. I made them in a few colors. The sun is really shining so I didn't get great pictures , sorry about that.
Make sure to check in tomorrow for Monday Mouse Madness. Have a blessed evening.
