just because…

Delicate Blossoms

A box of Hero Arts goodness arrived at my house yesterday and of course, I had to dive in and get inky!

Delicate Blossoms CU

Love the look of Copic markers on kraft cardstock! This image is much taller, but I stamped it onto a piece of cardstock laying on my desk. Doing that drove the entire design of the card. I need to do that more often, instead of starting with the standard card base. :)

Have you been making cards for the challenge over at Moxie Fab World? There are 4 challenges in honor of Card Style, the special issue that is now on stands. Just click on one of these topics and use the Mr. Linky at the bottom. Winners will be chosen and the prize is a copy of the issue!

The tricky part is, which area do I enter this in? :) I think I will go for classy and elegant. The color combo and the flowers put it into that catagory for me. :)

I meant to get this posted and scheduled for this morning, but we spent the evening in the ER. Our little man needed stitches in his eyebrow. He was playing at the pool with daddy and somehow bumped his head on the play set. 6 stitches later…he was amazing through the whole ordeal. And I am grateful for a strong husband who stayed with him through it all, even when I couldn’t. The little man is resting today with a bruised and swollen shut eye. He should be able to have the stitches out in 5 days. The poor thing, I would give him anything he asked for. I even offered cookie salad for breakfast, but he thought cinnamon toast sounded better. Yes, he is quite the little man.

thanks for listening to my mommy story and for stopping by!

Supplies: Stamps-Hero Arts (Canvas Stripes Cling, Delicate Blossoms, Everyday Sayings), Ink-Tsukineko (Memento Tuxedo Black) (Versamark Watermark), Copics (R22, R24, R27, G80, G94)
