Celebrate Today

Wow, what a difference a day and a little bit of meds makes. We are all doing much better. Thanks for the well wishes. I appreciate all of them. I am feeling so good that I even got a card done this morning. I think I may get a lot of stamping done if the weather continues it's course. We are looking at 5 - 7 inches of snow today and right now it sounds like freezing rain is hitting the side of the house.

I made this card for today's Sketch Challenge. I am using up scraps of Ginger Blossom paper before I dive into my 2nd package of it. This card just fell into place and I love when that happens. I did use a wide variety of stamps and I'll list those in the card recipe.

I really love how you can make such vibrant flowers and how easy they are with the Sale-a-Bration set So Many Scallops. I simply inked this one up in Groovy Guava, rocked and rolled it in Rose Red ink and punched it out with my Scallop Punch. I then punced the center with the 1" circle punch and So Saffron ink. A few polka dots curteousy of the Three for You punch box and a little sponging with So Saffron ink and I was set. The stemp is from Garden Whimsy and is stamped off once in Old Olive ink. I set the flower and center of it up on dimensionals.

Stay warm today!

Great, great, great CARD! I'm thinking of getting the scallops set as my freebie because of it's versatility. I love the guava witht the rose red! I'm glad you're feeling better, I know what you mean about not even wanting to get off the couch...smile.

Absolutely Gawjuss! I have got to try layering other stamps over or under my sentiments . . . I love the look and keep forgetting to give it a try.
