Today brings another look at a new Flourishes stamp set called, Gerbera Daisies. Michelle will have this one and Cherries and Peaches available in the Stamper’s Dream store tonight. (she also got some new My Mind’s Eye goodies in too, might be a good night for shopping)
I colored the image in with Copics and added airbrushing to the background, while the paper was still in the Labels 8 die. The background papers are Basic Grey June Bug and October Afternoon Cherry Hill. See the little butterflies? Those images are in the stamp set also. I stamped them onto text patterned paper, colored them with pale Copics, inked them to distress, and foam mounted them to the card. Whew. That’s a lot of work for two small butterflies! :) LOL!
Today is a very special day. My DH and I have been married for 10 years. Wow! Time flies by! To this day, I am still in awe at the man I get the privilege of spending the rest of my life with. This man is more amazing than I could ever express in words. And the fact that he puts up with me and caters to all my wildest whims, is miraculous! I have been blessed with the greatest partner and I love him more and more each and every day. He is the answer to my heart’s deepest prayers. Did you know that we don’t even know the first time we met? :) Our college roomies dated, so he was just always around, or I was! :) It wasn’t until right before our roomies got married, that we reconnected. We started dating at their wedding and were engaged quickly. I love the song, “Keeper of the Stars” by Tracy Byrd. The lyrics say,” it was no accident, me finding you, someone had a hand in it, long before we ever knew.”
Have a wonderful weekend and thanks for stopping by!
