Happy Sunday Everyone!
Well, yesterday was a bust!! I did not go to dinner with DH because he went to visit a sick friend of his.....I decided to stay home & stamp! I made this card, stamped some images for a couple of image swaps I'm in and drooled over my new catty some more! I browsed my usual blogs looking for a sketch and maybe a color challenge to inspire me but came up empty on that too....
Sooo, I decided to go through my stash of images I've received from Wish-RAK on SCS and ran across this beauty. It's from the ss called Bloomin' Beautiful and I instantly knew what I was going to make. I pictured pink flowers dimensionalized on a polka dot background.....I was just hoping it wouldn't be too busy! I'll make sure to decorate the inside before mailing it so it'll be as pretty as the outside.
I'm off to start dinner! I know it's really early but with DH's work hours, I cook early so he'll have something to eat. Today it's meatloaf, mashed potatoes & corn.....it'll be gone before the day is over and I'll have to think of something else----oh the joys of having a family LOL!!! I hope the rest of your day is great.....thanks so much for stopping by!!!

Oh Jackie.... I'm sorry your day didn't turn out that great. But stampin' is better than cookin' but NOT better than spending time with family! And look how you spent the day. This card is gorgeous! I love those colors and I like the photo corners. Hmmm, I rarely use that punch.ReplyDelete
Need some sketch inspiration.... here's a few for you..
You may be familiar with these. I have more if you're interested.
Have a great day, my friend.

The card is beautiful, pink and brown are some of my favorite color combos.

Jakie you did a great job on this. I am surfing looking for a sketch to jump start my stamping today too. Hope I find something as nice as yours.ReplyDelete

Nice job on the flowers. They really stand out. The photo corners are a great accent. I have not tried that but you have convinced me!ReplyDelete

This is beautiful. Love that image!ReplyDelete
This is so pretty. I like that patterned paper and the color combo.ReplyDelete
I just put my cassarole in the oven. It's one of our favorites but takes about an hour and a half to make - about half that time in the oven - so I don't make it often. But mmmmm is it good. The main ingredients are apples, cheese and saurkraut. I know, sounds odd but it's really delicious.
meat loaf and mashed potatoes :) mmm, now to the card,It is beautifulReplyDelete
and I love your coloring of these flowers.
I have this image and love it!!! I was thinking before seeing this that it would be nice to ink it up. After seeing this, I really want to! Beautiful! I like it with the Polka dot background and the soft pink flowers. Thanks for sharing!ReplyDelete
Beautiful coloring on the flowers, Jackie! I love the pink/brown combo, too!ReplyDelete

I love how soft and pretty this card is!ReplyDelete
