In Stamping Mode

Happy pretty mother's day

At my most recent trip to Archiver's, I was able to purchase a lovely book on Ribbon embellishments at clearance for $5!! There's sooo much eye candy in there and I just had to get right to work on a project that was totally inspired by a beautiful handmade flower.


Well, I can at least say that I have a Mother's Day card done for next year! :) I'm sure this is probably also a welcome change to my routine posts of Christmas cards, lol! This picture really doesn't do my flower any justice, sadly. I used a lot of Shimmerz on this project though!! The blue aging that you see was done with December Sky Blingz and I spritzed my finished flower with Baby Breath Spritz. Here's a closeup!


Sketch inspiration came from the latest Mojo Monday challenge. Ok, I'm off to lay my weary head down for the night. I've had a persistent headache for the past two days...it must be allergy related, grrrrr. Hopefully it will be gone by morning, wish me luck!

Thank you so much for visiting and getting, "in stamping mode."
