Hopes and dreams!

Hello there and happy Friday to you!  I got an early start on my stamp room time this morning, so I thought I'd come by early and post my card.  I have been trying to make it a daily habit to create something.  We have lots going on right now and for that little bit of time I spend crafting my mind relaxes and my stresses ease.  Creating takes me to my happy place!  I just love it!  There is something so cool about starting with a pile of things and turning them into a new fancy project!   Crafting for the win!   Ok, on to today's therapy session (LOL):

I love, love, love (cannot stress enough how much I looooove!!) this stamp set.  It is called Garden in Bloom and it is just...(swoons) beautiful!  It is a Two-Step stamp set.  It has flowers and leaves and flutterbys and bee-bumbles!!  (Makes the bees seem less grouchy when you say it that way!)  You can make Spring flowers or Bright Summer flowers or Fall flowers!  You could even make them all Christmas-y just by changing up your color scheme.  I truly love this set! 

I kept my color scheme simple and the design too.  I used Daffodil Delight and Soft Suede ink.  I stamped the large flowers full strength and then stamped off once for the smaller flowers.  I also stamped off (lemon Lime) for the leaves. I wanted to add green, but really wanted to keep it subtle.


I stamped and fussy cut the flutterby and added a blingy Rhinestone body.  She is only adhered on the the left, so she appears to be fluttering around!  I used the Stitched Shapes Framelits and Layering Ovals for my sentiment and raised them up with a couple of Dimensionals.  I added one simple strip of ribbon behind the sentiment.  


Here is the inside of the card.  One simple flower. :)

Here is the pile of stuff I had to put away after I finished making my card!  Feel free to click any image to take you straight to my store.


I hope that you have a super day!   I will be back soonest with more to share!  Leave me a little note or comment and let me know you stopped by!  I love meeting new friends and also love to know when my buddies have stopped in.
