You're Too Kind

Today is one of those really quiet peaceful days. Why you might ask? The kids have their first day of school today, lol. Don't get me wrong, I love my kids, I would die for my kids but once they reach a certain age they seem to need the structure that school gives them. We spent 5 days camping over the long weekend. It was so nice just to get away for a little bit and have one last hurrah before Fall arrives and judging by the chill in the air, it's around the corner!

Today's card is another case from Theresa Momber, I really liked the vivid colours of this and so I kept the colours similar. First I stamped the rose from Fifth Avenue Floral with versamark and then embossed with clear embossing powder. I sponged Daffodil Delight and Peach Parade all over, then I added Riding Hood Red to just a few spots. The Flowers are stamped on water colour paper and I once again used all three colours to colour the image. I will be adding Crystal Effects to the centers of the flowers to finish it off.

Stamps: Fifth Avenue Floral, SAB set
Paper: More Mustard, Basic Black, Very Vanilla, Watercolour
Ink: Daffodil Delight, Peach Parfait, Riding Hood Red, Basic Black, Versamark
Other: Black Ribbon, Brads

Hey Tina! Beautiful card. I just had to drop a note that the colour is actually Peach Parfait, lol! It seems to me that I never get around to posting on my blog anymore, but its really nice to see you posting often. You also have your kids in school already so I am sure that makes a big difference in free time too :)

Thanks Tina, what can I say, blogging when you're in a hurry causes confusion with the new in colours, lol.

I miss your blog creations but understand how hard it can be to stamp when you have little ones. Time flies and before you know it you'll have all your kids in school!
