Wishing You Comfort





I've had this stamp way too long in my collection without being used.  I decided to bring out the distress inks to create a background for it being partially on.  I softened the distress ink by gently wiping with a baby wipe.

Ranger Water Color paper
Technique Tuesday - Dandelion stamps
Memento - Tuxedo Black ink

Hop Hop Hooray card




Another favorite animal of mine is kangaroos.  This is one of My Favorite Things newest stamp sets and I couldn't wait to use them (even before the cat set I also got).  I started off doing a Distress ink background but it turned more into a stormy day instead of something cheerful, so I opted to go with a paper background.  I do have something in mind for the original background to use at a later date.

Celebrate Floral card




This is an all occasion card to celebrate...it can be used for a birthday, anniversary, Monday, divorce...any reason you want someone to celebrate.  Sweet peas are some of my favorite flowers and I planted some seeds this Spring and hopefully they haven't drowned in all the rain we've had.  I'll replant if that has happened.
