MTSC66 Simply Said....Thinking of You

Happy Hump Day Peeps!!! The week is flying by and we are on the down hill slide to the weekend. I am leaving on Friday afternoon to go a friends condo at the Lake of the Ozarks for a Girls Getaway Weekend!! I am super excited. So this might be my last post of the week, we will see, but I have alot to get done before leaving and today I am doing a bit of shopping and having lunch with a friend.

But onto what you are really here for. Today's card is made with Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge You know I love Mercy and her awesome sketches!!!!

The card base is rich razzleberry and is a 5 inch square. I followed that with some whisper white and pale plum card stock. The DS paper is from the beautiful Cottage Wall paper pack, seriously I am on my second pack of this paper!!

The stamp set I used is an oldie, that quite frankly I have never been a big fan of, but I pulled it out and dusted it off, and gave it a bit of love. The flowers are stamped with black stazon onto the pale plum card stock. I used razzleberry ink and my aqua painter to color in the flowers. I added some silver sticky backed rhinestones to the center of the flowers. I them matted that piece with rich razzleberry card stock and then some whisper white. I pierced the top and bottom of the white piece. I added some rich razzleberry ribbon and bow. The sentiment comes from the "Three Little Words" stamp set. I finished it off with three more silver rhinestones.

I wanted to show you a picture of sme beautiful daffodils, picked from my yard yesterday.......amazing they survived this past weekend, with the snowfall and freezing temps that came through.

Beautiful...huh? They were all laying over and looked so sad, so I had to cut them and now they look so pretty, just makes me smile!

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

I thought that stamp set looked familiar, but I can't quite place it. It doesn't matter, though because this card is so pretty. I love using supplies I have that I have forgotten about. It's almost like getting something new (all over again!)...
