Love You


I was very touched to find out that Agata has nominated me for the Liebster Award!  That was so sweet and kind of her, and I will make sure to pass it on to those creative people out there who constantly inspire and motivate me, some of them unknowingly!  (I'll do that in another post as I need to rush off to my daughters Rodeo Show at school today!)

As we browse through blogs our brains pick up on ideas that we then use in some shape or form later, without making the connection where that inspiration comes from!  Of course, sometimes, when we are very LOW on mojo, we ask permission to CASE someone to give us a kickstart!  I am thankful to so many of you out there for constantly inspiring me and helping me to look at something in a different way, thank you! 

Here is a card I made using a Purple Onion Design stamp.  It's one of the beautiful flowers that came in the Pot-a-Flower set!  It's nice and big and I did not want to add anything to it.

(Edit: it appears I forgot to mention that I was adding this card to the current SSS Challenge which is Anything Goes!  Sorry!  Thank you Mandy for pointing it out!)


I simply coloured the flower with my Copic markers and matted it on a piece of patterned paper (still trying to get rid of all those scraps) before adhering it to my notecard which was stamped with the Hero Arts Envelope Pattern stamp in their Iris Chalk ink.  That bold sentiment is from Papertrey Ink!  I eventually got that set, I have been looking at it since it was released, a LONG time ago!

Ok, got to go, or else I am going to be late!

Have a really super Friday!
