I seem to have found some MOJO to create this week. Yeah!!! I have been sadly lacking in the ability to create ANYTHING for over a week now and then the last two days I am whipping out cards in no time at all....go figure. I think the events in Boston and Texas and in my own life do get me down sometimes and it is hard for me to create....but I also know that it is our incredible human spirits and our families and friends that keep us keeping on! My heart goes out to anyone that is in pain from difficult circumstances in their lives! Blessings to you ALL!
Tonight I put together a card for the Waltzingmouse Flower Show CASE competition:
HERE. Here is a photo:
I specifically wanted to play with Folk Art Labels No. 25. A small $6.10 stamp set that is full of charm! Here is what it looks like (courtesy of the Waltzingmouse Stamps Site: HERE.)
I was intrigued by the small stamp on the right that is almost pine cone shaped. I just fell in love with that little stamp and wanted to play around with making a background with it. Here is what I came up with:
Anyway thanks for taking a look at my card. And thanks to Helen (and all of the designers) again for the inspiration and to Claire and the Waltzingmouse family for their wonderful products that I so enjoy playing with!

Thanks for your comments on my blog, I hope you had fun looking at the non-WMS flower show stuff! If you read magazines electronically, Craft Stamper is available that way these days. The US site that has it is Magamall and you can find it here (I've never used the site, just thought I'd pass along the info in case it's useful!).
This turned out SO pretty, Jill! Love the images and the pretty colors you chose! Love the layers in your focal point too!!! Gorgeous!ReplyDelete
What a pretty CASE Jill! love the colors you used!ReplyDelete
Such a beauty! Love your color combo and how you made the background. I don't have any of that stamp line (yet) but hope to soon. Helen's card is so lovely as well. Enjoy the day!!ReplyDelete
