Thank You

Thank you for stopping by and visiting my blog! I haven't been quite diligent in keeping up with it of late. I'm hoping to change that soon! One reason - I haven't stamped for some time!! GASP! I know - it's a sad state when one doesn't stamp every day. :) Seriously - I want to create some more things, current things to get posted for everyone to see.

The card below was one I did at my stamp club a bit ago. I had seen a card similar to this on SCS and loved it. It really caught my eye. So, I wanted to make one as well.

The card measures 4.25x4.25. I did a reverse mask in that I cut a hole in the center of scrap paper and placed it on the card. I sponged the ink into the circle then - kind of like the sun/moon glowing. I thought this would make a great guy card even with the flowers because of the colors used.

Stamps: Upsy Daisy (SU)
CS: Confetti White
Ink: Chocolate Chip, Summer Sun, Really Rust
Other: Stamping Sponge, Coluzzle (Circle)

Thanks for stopping by! I plan to stamp tomorrow, so my 'plan' is to have new cards to post.
