Always on My Mind



Good Monday Morning Peeps! Hope you all had a great weekend!

Today's card is made with Karen Giron's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge. I was blog surfing awhile back and saw this beauty by Nancy Morgan. My card is pretty much a CASE of hers. I so wanted to try the beautiful flowers from Fifth Avenue Floral in black and white like hers! My sentiment comes from the SU set Stem Sayings. I added three black brads and a spiral clip with some black and white checkered ribbon.

One of the flowers is stamped on scrap paper and cut out and added to the card with some dimensionals. I added some crystal effects to some petals of the rose like the original.

Saturday afternoon and evening I spent with my friend Lois. We had such fun, we always do. We laughed so much and in between we made this:






This is a super fun project that Lois had purchased the tutorial of from Becky Roberts, a super talented lady and fellow Catty Cruise Mate.

I wanted to make a Halloween one and Lois was going to make a Christmas themed one, but after we started, Lois ended up with a Halloween themed one as well, we are both going to try a Christmas one soon. I used three different stamp sets on this, one is retired, Autumn Apparitions and Tasty Sweet and Batty for You are current. The DS paper I used is retired.

Well, that is all for today, thanks so much for stopping by and HAPPY STAMPING!!!!
