I just got back to reality (read cold, snow, and work) after a week's vacation in sunny, warm Florida! It was a wonderful time made even more so because our 3 daughters flew down and met us there. I soaked up time with them as much as I soaked up sunshine!
While I was gone I received so many lovely comments on my blog. Thank you! And I received the Stylish Blogger Award from several creative stampers, including:
Lucia Dawe at Ink Me Baby One More Time
Rachel Takala at Stampin' Silhouettes
Judy Marshall at Brown Paper Packages
Thank you Lucia, Rachel and Judy for the award! If anyone would like to know 8 random things about me and some of the blogs that inspire me, click HERE.
Because I was away, I haven't had a chance to stamp so today's card is one I had hanging around. But first let me say that one of my favorite sets in the Occasions Mini is Bold Blossom, a simple floral set that includes a thank you sentiment. It is one of those sets that I can use when I need a card, and need it quickly!
Today's card, with a few variations, is straight out of our Stampin' Success magazine. I love the colors and the layout....and of course the stamps! It fits in our Small Open End Envelope (3.5" x 6. 75").
Stamps: Bold Blossom (Occasions Mini)
Paper: Whisper White, Cherry Cobbler, Baja Breeze textured
Ink: Cherry Cobbler, Early Espresso, Pear Pizzazz
Other: Daffodil Delight 1/8" taffeta ribbon, paper piercer, Brad
I am itching to get stamping but I will be working all day today. If I don't post for a few days that is why. But thanks for stopping by. Hope you are having a great weekend!
