Rose Sentiments

       As I was digging through all my stamps, I came across this Close to My Heart set called Rose Sentiments. It's a funky rose, but still a rose. Must have come out somewhere between 2001- 2005. The word ROSE is from the Flower Packet set which is CTMH Acrylic stamp set. The inks are from CTMH, but the papers, which I found in my scrap file, are probably from Michael's. I know I should probably be making something for the Autumn season, but I saw a challenge to make something pink. I had no intention of submitting my card, but PINK kept calling out to me. Thanks for looking. Have a great day.

Dandelion Wish


Again I needed a get well card for my friend, so I did these cute mice on the dandelions. You can't see on this picture, but I used sparkly stickles on the fluffy dandelion. I found the cute grey dandelion paper at Michaels about 6 months ago on clearance. It goes with the stamp so well. Sometimes it is fun to dig into your stash and discover something so cute.
I am currently working on a scrapbook of my mother's high school and young adult years. This summer when I was visiting, she came out of her room with this oversized leather looking scrapbook. Oh was I ever surprised. I never knew she had this. I have been scrapbooking for14yrs now, and not once did she ever mention this book. The pages are crumbling as I try to carefully remove pictures and memorabilia. I have a few more pages to complete and then I will get back to making cards and posting. 
Thanks for looking and have a great day.
