Hello Stamping Friends, It won’t be long before the new catalog is introduced. I am going to miss quite a few of the retiring stamp sets. The new catalog is pretty awesome but it’s hard every year to give up those favorites. My hubby and I have a large country garden. Roses are a big part of our garden so I thought I would use the Climbing Rose stamp set to create today’s card. I started with a base card of Very Vanilla CS. The next layer is DSP that is retiring. I stamped the roses from the Climbing Roses stamp set onto Very Vanilla CS. I used Stampin’ Blends to color the image and then added Wink Of Stella for a little sparkle. I wanted some of the DSP to show through so I punched a two inch hole opposite the stamped image. I was planning on doing this card at my class last Saturday but God had other plans. I had to cancel class because of a reaction I was having from the antibiotics I was given for my cat bite. Things didn’t get any better and finally I ended up in the emergency room on Thursday. I know your thinking what took so long before I went in. I’m a retired nurse and we tend to make terrible patients. I was waiting to improve by time. When I had a 101 degree temp I figured it was time. I am feeling much better than Thursday but not back to full speed. I have 2 weeks of treatment and hopefully continue to improve daily. If you know me personally you know that I hate slowing down. Sometimes I’m not given a choice. Thank you for hanging in there with me. Take a look at the card and let me know what you think.
PAWS TO PONDER
Hugs and happy stamping, MB
