Crocus-First Sign of Spring
I've just gotten back from church services and let me tell you, it is blazing hot outside. I think our temps are supposed to be at least 100 degrees for most of the week here in Alabama. That is not allowing for the horrible humidity so I can just imagine the heat index.
I wanted to make a card this week to honor a couple of friends. Pam aka Pam124 (Splitcoast Stampers) is now on the Design Team for the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenges. She is a fantastic card maker. I decided to go for the more intricate challenge this week for the MMSC64.
Had a lot of fun with this one. Great sketch! http://priscillastyles.blogspot.com/
Another friend, Emily Keaton aka ejkeaton (SCS) is Guest Challenge Hostess this week for the Flourishes Timeless Tuesday challenges so I am making this card in her honor, also. Emily wanted us to use a pin of some sort on our cards. I found a stick pin and added a couple of beads from a broken necklace. FTTC77 http://www.flourishes.org/category/timeless-tuesday/
I was vacationing in Orange Beach, AL last week near Pensacola, FL and called Jan, the owner of Flourishes (in Pensacola) to see if I could come by. She said yes, and I had the most wonderful time there browsing through her stamps, etc. I picked up the stamp set I using for this card while there. Fun, fun!!!
