Why am I feeling joy? Umm, because I am on vacation for the next nine days (counting weekends) and I am thrilled! Yippee! The last full week of vacation that I had was last June and that was the week that my mom died so need I say more?!!! I plan on stamping, sleeping in, stamping, staying up late (stamping), going for walks, stamping, swimming, stamping and spending quality time with family and friends. Did I mention that I want to do some serious stamping? Not too much pressure on the week, huh? lol!
Anyway, this card was made using a stamp from Artful Inkables. As some of you know, I have a "thing" for Purple Coneflowers so I had to use this image! I stamped the image using Tombow Watercolor Markers on Cryogen White Iridescent paper that was an awesome gift from my friend Lynda. The scallops were done with Martha Stewart's Scallop Lace Punch.
I'm married to a wonderful man. Together we have two children, and four grandchildren. I have a passion for cardmaking and scrapbooking. I've been doing both now for the last nine years and I just never tire of it! I think it's a great creative outlet and a good form of relaxation and stress relief. I sell some of my work but I truly participate in this craft for my own enjoyment.
