Frames and Flowers

Gosh, the sun is shining and I'm sooooooo happy! How great to see that ball of fire. I can hardly wait for the time to change in March. I love longer days.

I guess thinking of the sun is what brought on this bright card for the Queen for the Day on Splitcoaststampers. The queen is Susan aka susanbri and this is the card I cased. I used more white cardstock than patterned paper and because my sentiment is in the frame, I added some pearls.

My frame is a stamp that belongs to my sister (the person with every stamp that has ever been made).
I'm laughing but I think it is true. Thanks, sis! It is a Gina K. Stamp TV image by Nina Brackett. All I had to do was color the flowers, sponge inside, and cut out. I'm not sure if it fit with a Spellbinders die as some of hers do or not. The sentiment is Gina K. Designs. Names are listed below in my recipe.

Thanks for stopping by and have a fabulous week.

Stamps-Gina K. Stamp TV stamps by Nina Brackett/Lovely Labels, Sentiment is Gina K. Designs/Framed Greetings

Hi Benzi,
endlich scheint wieder die Sonne, so wie auf Deiner wundervollen Karte. Du hast die Sonne und die Blumen wunderschön coloriert sehr sehr schön hervorkommen lassen.
Eine schöne Arbeit.

This is so bright and pretty, Benzi! Love that frame and those beautiful flowers! Aren't you lucky to have a sister with so many stamps. Hope she lives nearby. We are enjoying a beautiful sunny day too. They're calling for rain and storms tomorrow so we need to enjoy the sun today!
