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 often gets in the way of crafting and blogging, Kim, so we all understand--but applaud your return today! Great card for your comeback! Lots of color and layers. Great sketch to start, but you certainly made it your own!

Well I'm in the same boat about not blogging for awhile. Mine was also wedding related. I could have used that sunflower stamp as their theme was, Sunflowers. Your card is really cute.
