I haven't been here in a week or so and think it is time to upload a card. I had visitors over the 4th of July and the weather was a complete washout.....Friday and Saturday. Some areas around us had 4 5, 6, and up to 8 inches of rain. We were very fortunate and I think we only had around 3". It was the worst of worst holidays. After Christmas, July 4th is my favorite holiday so you know I wasn't very happy. :-)
I was really ready to make a card and have been working on a couple of cards for my little munchkins which I'll post soon as I finish them. I made this card using a stamp from a good friend over at Splitcoaststampers, Sue aka coffeestampers. She sent me two already stamped images (different designs) and I ruined the first one I attempted. This one is missing a leaf after I cut it off while fussy cutting and then lost it. Ugh! I rather like it with the single leaf, anyway.
I colored with Copics and used a Marianne die. Recipe is below.
I was visiting Bonnie Klass' blog yesterday Stamping With Klass and she left a link for the most Amazing Grace video ever....for me, at least. I don't think she'll mind me sharing. If you're interested, here is the link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dy3h6--fMBA It is a pan flute and I've listened to it sooooooo many times already.
I'm entering my card into the Shopping Our Stash challenge 109-Summer Theme or Summer Colors-I'm thinking my flower qualifies for summer, for sure.
Going over to the Little Red Wagon for a clean and simple challenge.
