Do You Blog?

A few weeks ago my Blog Roll disappeared and I am planning on rebuilding it over the next week. If you have a blog and would like to be included in that section please post here with your Blog address and I will get you added to it. I love looking at different blogs and it's great when I can visit blogs of people who read mine and who comment here. Just leave a comment on this post and I'll get you added during the week.
Yesterday I got a bunch of stamping done! I actually finished 2 cards and got started on my Control Freaks Swap for the new catalog sets. I want to get them finished before August 1st when I am able to preorder the Holiday Mini sets. I am so excited that all of the sets in new mini catalogs are going to be die cut! Don't get me wrong, I love cutting and assembling stamps and I am a stickler at trimming. I get rid of as much extra rubber as possible and big orders can take me a day to assemble. However, there are times when I get a set and I would love to be able to stamp right away and this will fulfill that need for me. This card was made for Julia's Sketch for the Fan Club Challenges. I wanted to use my Eventful Hostess Level I set. I got it just for the Sweet Pea stamp as it is so cute. I also wanted to show off as much designer paper from the Fall Flowers assortment as possible. I chose Really Rust, Old Olive, Sahara Sand and Whisper White to compliment the colors in the paper. Most of the card is simple layering. I did stamp the new Polka Dot background stamp in Soft Sky before I stamped the Sweet Pea in JetBlack Stazon. I used my AquaPainter to color in the image with Always Artichoke, Mellow Moss and old Olive. I also added another layer of the pea by cutting it out and adhering it with Dimensionals. I actually opened my Double Stitched ribbon in Blue Bayou and it is simply gorgeous! The final element was the flowers from the Spring Bouquet Flower Punch with a vintage brad through the center to balance off the card. Congratulations from Hugs and Wishes was stamped in Old Olive.
Today we are going out to celebrate my grandmother's birthday. She turned 88 on the 26th. I hope all of you have a nice relaxing Sunday. I'll be back with a new card tomorrow.
