Longing for Spring

I've been feeling a little blue tonight, no reason really, maybe just the winter blahs. So I sat down to color (it is the perfect cure-all) and discovered this Stampendous Narcissus stamp. I love daffodils. Don't you? Their smell is pure, sweet heaven.

Here are the details of this card:
Stampendous stamps: Narcissus SSC1107 & Cling Music Score CRR103
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Old Paper & Peeled Paint
Copic Markers: YG0000,YG00, YG01, Y00, Y02, Y04, Y06, Y11, Y13, Y14, YR20, YR21, YR23

Thanks for visiting & Good Night!

The Best Things in Life...

...are friends! This includes all of my wonderful blogger friends that take the time to comment. You always make me smile and you inspire me everyday with your beautiful creations. I so appreciate all of you.

This card was made using the wonderful Hero Arts Hero Hues in the Sea color family. I used the layering papers, the mixed accents and the Cerulean chalk ink. The background was created using one of my all time favorite stamps, the Hero Arts Design Block Grid Pattern. The flowers are Hero Arts 4 Fun Flowers and the sentiment is from the Hero Arts Things set. If I were to do it again I probably wouldn't add the Glossy Accents to "BEST" - I shake too much. If any of you have any pointers or tips, boys I'd love to hear them.

Thanks for visiting and for all of your kind words and encouragement. Good night my friends!

Joy Ride

I can't believe it has been so long since I last posted a card. It seems like I never get anything done during the holidays...my Christmas cards haven't even been mailed. If I hurry maybe I could tuck a little valentine in each envelope.

These new Hero Arts stamps are fabulous. I used Joy Ride for the image, Dictionary Greetings for the background & Things for the sentiment. The sentiment "let's go for a ride" from the Joy Ride set is stamped on the inside. The bling is from the Hero Arts Sea Mixed Accents and perfectly matches the Sea blue layering paper. In addition to all of the great Hero Arts products, I also used Ranger Super Fine Detail Clear Embossing Powder with Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Stormy Sky & Brushed Corduroy. The fancy edge of the card was made using the Tim Holtz Alterations On the Edge die cut Brackets. Thanks to Simon Says Stamp. When I was making this card I realized everything I used I had gotten from them...it truly is a one-stop stamping store. I could live there:-) If you haven't shopped there, you should check out their site. It's amazing!

Thanks so much for visiting my blog. Have a wonderful evening!
