Good morning! Up a little early this morning, so I thought I'd finish and post the card I started working on last night. My parents left to go back home today so Mom had lots of Laila time yesterday. I took advantage of that and headed into my craft room for some stamping time. I had a pretty weepy day on Wednesday so I know it's important for me to try and get my "therapy" started back up. :) I wanted to play along with the challenge from Dynamic Duos this week. I totally missed the deadline to submit it for the challenge, but it was fun to make anyway.
I used a mix of old and new products on this one. My sweet friend Marla was kind enough to gift me her Inspired by Nature stamp set and I just had to use it. It was always a favorite of mine but I never did buy it for some reason. I don't know why I love cone flowers so much, but I find myself drawn to this stamp set and the actual flowers themselves when we visit the local arboretum. I also used a new stamp set, the gorgeous Papillon Potpourri. I just love those butterflies! What do you think about Crumb Cake paired with Island Indigo? I like it, but Island Indigo is one of my favorite SU colors. I also tried out the new piercing products and I have to say, GET IT! I can see that quickly becoming a favorite set of tools.
