Thoughts of You

Good Morning everyone.  Hope everyone is having a good weekend.  I spent yesterday shopping.  I work from home so I don't buy alot of dresses or even dressy things anymore.  I have a wedding to go to in 2 weeks and I don't think she would like me to show up in my regular attire of sweats or shorts.  This is the 2nd mall I have been to trying to find something I like.  I find that the older I get the more I hate clothes shopping.  This was no exception.  I found a dress but don't love it.  I would rather have spent the day at my LSS. 

Anyway enough complaining.  Today is the Stempeltraume challenge.  This week is a sketch.  I loved it!!!  It was easy to do and was made for me to use my new Heartfelt Creations stamps that you can layer and make flowers.  What do you think??  This set also fits a spellbinders set so you can either use that to cut them out or cut them out by hand.  I am still having some problems lining them up so I cut these out by hand.  They were really simple. 

The other wonderful challenges this fits are:

Cute Card Thursday - Someone Special - I think I am going to send this to a really good friend I worked with of mine who retired last week.   I really miss her and have been thinking about her alot this week.  I hope she is enjoying her retirement.

Pixie - Cut it out - I cut out my new flowers.  I really want to try more of this. 

For Fun - Use an Old Stamp - Old is relative. Right?  This stamp is over a year old so I thought it fit.  I really like my Sugar Nellie stamps

Quixotic - Use DIY Flowers - I made these flowers and now I want to try to make others that I have not tried.

Your Next Stamp Challenge - Cut it out and pop it up.  I first thought of my image and then thought of my flowers.  I cut out the flowers and then put a pop dot between each one to give dimension.

If the She Fits - Rain or Shine - I pick Shine!!  I can't wait to be out in the sunshine planting my flowers.

Simple Doodles - You are on my mind - I love this theme!  My friend who retired is on my mind this week.  I miss talking to her. 

Crafty Catz - Pearl & Petals - I made these flowers and put the pearls in the middle

One Stop - Summer Breeze - This stamp reminds me of a summer day when I am out working on my flowers.

Sweet Stampin - Get Personal - This was to make a card for someone special.  I made this for a person who was my friend at work for many years.  She retired and I want to send her something to say I miss her and I'm thinking of her.

Prairie Fairy Fridays - Flowers - This was easy.  I love flowers on my cards.  I don't care if they are stamped, silk or paper

Something Completely Different - Flowers - Yes it is the time of year for flowers!!!  Can't wait to plant mine.

Thank you for stopping by.  Thanks to everyone who leaves a message.  I really enjoy reading them.
