I love flowers.  They're beautiful.  They smell nice.  They will brighten anyone's day!
But, I know absolutely nothing about them.  I certainly cannot grow them.

 So, to get my flower fix, I buy floral stamp sets!!  You can't kill those!!

Here's a few cards I've made in the past few days using various floral stamp sets.

This first one uses all www.simonsaysstamp.com products including the Autumn Blessings stamp set.  I entered this card in their Flickr Challenge #17.  The challenge included using these colors:



The next card also uses Simon Says Stamp products.  I used the Scribble Flowers stamp set.  Stamped the images on watercolour paper, then masked them off.  It is quite hard to tell in the photo but I stamped a background stamp from Impression Obsession called Beauty Text over the masked flowers.  I then watercolored the flowers using an inexpensive watercolour marker set from Michaels.  My water brush has some residue glitter in it (from what, I have no ide…

Okay, so I have been a little ill and a little busy over the past few weeks.  Also, I have been struggling  with setting up my blog...Up until now I was using my iPad  and it was frustrating!  Literally 3/4 of the reason I haven't been posting anything. But no more excuses...

Yes, I nearly fainted as the total was rang up. Yes, I nearly turned the car around to return it.  And yes, it is NOTHING like an iPad. Which I was kind of expecting.
It is definitely going to take some time to learn!!  But I'm up for the challenge because as I'm sitting here typing this, I feel good. I feel like I will open this thing up everyday and write!! And that is what I have been wanting to feel since I decided to start this blog!!!

Anyway, I've added my Pinterest link and also my Instagram (which I just started so not much there), so check them out if you would like!!

I will be back to…

I "Heart" Weekends

Happy Saturday!!  Let me begin by saying that I love weekends (I know, who doesn't). I work in the dental field, which means I spend my days catering to unhappy people, because let's face it, who's happy going to the dentist?! And I will admit, it doesn't make me happy either:).  So, when Friday rolls around, I get super excited...and relaxed! I never do any crafting during the week so I spend HOURS in my craft room on the weekends..my happy place.
I usually scan Pinterest and various blogs for some inspiration, make my coffee and dive in! (Some days I remain in my pjs, just sayin').  So here's a few cards I made, so far, this weekend.

Here's one I'm entering in the Color and Sketch Challenge #11 over at www.yournextstamp.com. You can do the sketch, the Color or combine both. I went with the sketch.


I chose circles and hearts as my shapes of choice(the sketch had stars). The circles are from MFT Stitched Circles and the hearts are from Your Next Stamp T…
