SDC161: Flowers


Wow!  I can't believe it's been over 2 months since I last blogged...and for those of you still around, thanks for hanging in there.

I've been working on a big project the last month or so involving some wedding invitations for some very special people.  I'll wait a little longer to share those as they just were mailed not too long ago.

So besides that big project and my full time job demanding more attention, I took a break from my stamping and while I missed it a lot, I just couldn't seem to get my mojo going.  Finally this weekend I sat my butt in my studio, threw on a Hallmark movie and stamped a little.

This weeks challenge over at Stampotique Designer's Challenge is one of my good friend, Kristen's and I couldn't pass up creating with some flowers.  Hope you will join us at a chance to win a $30 gift certificate over there.

I also used the Freshly Made Sketch #149.

As always, thanks for stopping by, appreciate the love!

Life is a Path...


This is a card I shared over on Stampotique for their new release blog hop that I forgot to post on my blog until know.

It's probably one of my most favorite I created for the new release as it's out of the norm for me.

I think this will be a great graduation card.
