I love crafting, especially rubber stamping. Most weekends I can be found surrounded by paper, rubber stamps and ink.

You'd Be Better Already

Happy Friday evening all,

I was lucky today and was able to work from my home office. Love when that happens on Fridays because we all know how bad Friday afternoon traffic can get.

After I finished up with the work stuff, I quickly put away my work computer and pulled out my stamping supplies. We have a good friend that had surgery for breast cancer this morning. I wanted to make a card for her and get it in the mail, as she lives in Virginia. I used Kim's sketch at Freshly Made Sketches and the colors from Color Throwdown.

I started by cutting the SU Sending Flowers die, a Sale-a-bration coordination product release for the  Sending You Thoughts Sale-a-bration set, from water color paper. The flowers are colored using Zig Water Color markers using the Color Throwdown colors. Using a Spellbinders Circle die and the partial die cutting technique, I made the half circle on a piece of SU Whisper White card stock. For the gray border around the half circle, I used two Die-namics Inside and Out Stitched circle dies taped together. The half circle panel is embossed using the SU 3D Brick and Mortar EF. The bottom panel is stamped with the SU Hardwood background stamp. I glued the flowers onto the embossed panel and used foam tape to pop it over the woodgrain panel. Both are glued to a card base of Going Gray card stock. I used some tiny SU butterfly dies for embellishments.

Here is the inside.

We are expecting some rain tomorrow here in SoCal. Sounds like a perfect excuse to stay in and craft.
Have a great Saturday all and thanks,
