Hi Stampers,

I have been MIA for a week for a good reason.  I spent four days in Boston with my daughter, Dana whose lofty goal is to run the Boston marathon.  She ran the 5K on Saturday and her time was very good.  She is hoping to qualify for the marathon itself next year.  Here are a few pictures from the run.

It was a great experience and time spent with a VIP in my life.  She truly is wonderful, caring person.  I am so proud to be her mom.

This is a card I started before we left for Boston.  I finally had a chance to finish it after unpacking and resurrecting some strength. I used the image from the Falling Flowers stamp set to stamp six flowers.  I used my blender pen and Calypso Coral, Melon Mambo and Crushed Curry inks to color two of each color.  I cut the center piece from one of each of the flowers and adhered it to the full flower with a dimensional.  I used the May Flowers framelit to cut out the full blossom.  I used the Layering Circle framelits to cut out the Basic Black backgrounds for the flowers.  I attached these pieces to a base card of Very Vanilla CS after stamping the leaves with Wild Wasabi ink from the same Falling Flowers stamp set.  I used an acrylic block with Old Olive ink to stamp a background for the greeting.  Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you enjoy the card.




Hugs and happy stamping,  MB
