Inspired by a baby dress!

Dawn McVey has featured these flowers on her blog several time and I just love them. I used an old book that I had and layered up 6 scallop circles, put the brad though, and crumpled away. Love how they turn out and how totally cute they are. I used SU retired Kiwi Kiss and Baha Breeze and basic gray for this card. My sister had a polka dot baby dress made out of these colors and I loved it!
SU supplies: Hero Arts stamp set, SU ink and CS- basic gray, kiwi kiss, baha breeze, very vanilla, Su border punch, SU scallop punch and brad, Sizzix Sizzlit die for leaf.

New Hero Arts Stamp

I love this new Hero Arts Stamp. I was waiting in line at Archivers and it called to me! I just stamped it in Choc. Chip and then used markers to highlight the petals. I can't wait to emboss this image, I think it will be beautiful! I took this photo in my newly remodeled kitchen, the title back splash took forever to find. I love it!

Supplies: Hero Art stamp set and Thank you from PTI Giga guidelines, Su ribbon, SU Pink Pirouette, celery, and white CS, SU choc. chip ink, and MS border punch.

Ahhh, Winter in Iowa

Isn't this beautiful! This is what happens when fog freezes, at least that is what the weather man said. I think it is one of the most beautiful parts of winter (and I am NOT a fan of winter).
This is the view from our drive way. I took this just after the girls got on the bus yesterday morning.
And this is (below) the photo today. Oh, what a difference a day makes. We have been getting freezing rain all day. At least a quarter inch of ice is every where. We lost power for 2 1/2hrs and I consider that a blessing, it could have been so much longer!

Okay, and now to some stamping.....I was inspired by Dawn' McVey's card for this one. The rhinestones in the center & the ribbon are a light green even though it didn't show up in the photo. I needed something bright because I can't remember the last time I have seen the sun here in Iowa......

Supplies: PTI Giga Guide Lines, SU ink - Rich Razzleberry, Melon Mambo (CS too), Pretty in Pink & Sale a Bration border punch, SU Celery Ribbon, rhinestones, dimensional.
