Well, the card that was supposed to take a few days got stretched into a week, as usual. An unexpected trip to the doctor and then to Michaels delayed this blog post a bit, but that's life, right? I've been having the worst time sleeping and my Sonata just isn't cutting it anymore, so I went to the doctor last Monday for some help. I had to see the NP instead of my doctor, who was on vacation, and it was not a good experience. So I needed some retail therapy and actually felt well enough to go to Michaels on Thursday. :) I had a great time with my friend Kathy and spent way too long there. We had to look at every single new stamp, of course, and it's a good thing there wasn't a sale, or I would have bought too many! I had a good time at the dollar bin, too. (If Michaels can make money on the dollar bin, then why is everything else in the store so much more expensive?)
On to the card! It's all stamped, no designer paper at all! I used only two stamps, both from Cornish Heritage Farms. I think the Leaves backgrounder is my new favorite; I just want to use it on every card! Anyway, the whole card started with the flower because I was admiring some of the embellishments in an online scrapbook store but was turned off by the prices, so decided to pull out some punches and Cuttlebug dies and make some of my own. This flower was one of my better attempts and I think it turned out pretty cute.
Thanks for visiting!
