Big Blooms Challenge
I was wasting time this morning on the computer, being a lump, when I got an IM from my friend Beate. We were both complaining about our need to stamp and lack of desire or mojo. So... we decided to challenge each other. She picked the paper... which was originally Au Chocolat, but I can't find mine (yes... my desk is THAT messy), so we settled on the Petals and Paisley's DS paper. I picked the stamp set... kinda. I was super wishy washy this morning. I should have gone to bed earlier last night. Okay... so I was SUPPOSE to pick the stamp set and Beate said "Big Blooms?" and I said "Perfect." LOL... see... wishy washy I tell yah. I need more coffee.
This happens to me a lot. I have a ton of stamping to do and I avoid doing it because nothing comes to me. As soon as I sit down and just START, then I enjoy it and actually get something done. Thanks for the start this morning sweet friend!!
Here is the recipe:
Stamp Sets: Big Blooms, Small Sayings, Linen Background
Paper: Not Quite Navy, Old Olive, Petals and Paisleys DS Paper
Ink: Not Quite Navy, Old Olive
Other: Ric Rack (a gift from Beate, she is too good to me) May Arts from Starlitsudios, EE Brads, 3/4 Circle Punch, Sakura Glitter Pen (starlitstudios), Dimensionals, Scor-pal (LOVE IT)
I'm super happy! My grandma gets to come home on Saturday!! My Mom will stay with her for about a month or so, so I'll fill in and give her a break whenever I can. She will have a nurse and occupational therapist checking in too. I know she has a long recovery ahead, but she is amazing and I know she'll be back to running around and playing cribbage with her friends again soon. I'm hoping for a full recovery for her big 87th birthday coming at the end of June. It will be a super celebration!! Thanks again to all of you for your support. She is LOVING the cards... it's so nice to see her big ole smile again.
Okay.... I'm going to stamp up some more of these cards!! Have a great day everyone, and thanks for stopping by! :)
