I've been busy today...this is my second post of the day. After my first post I got to work in our flower beds. I still had some planting to do, and the time is getting away from me. And so are the weeds! There were a few sprinkles of rain, and a lot of thunder (in the distance) while I was outdoors. But, thankfully, the storms missed us. Well, that work is done, for now at least.
Now back to what is really important...stamping!
I was browsing the challenge blogs this morning a saw this great sketch on Karen Giron's blog...here. I had already planned to use a stamp from the Inspired By Nature set from Stampin' Up. By the way...I like the name of that set...obviously!
Anyway, I love this grassy image from the set. It's SO versatile, I love to use it as a background stamp. This card will be going to my father-in-law, so I tried not to get too "flower-y". I didn't exactly succeed, did I? But, that's ok...he won't mind. I think the silver brads toned it down a bit...maybe???
To see a larger version of the pic, just click on it.
Please come back again, soon!
