Flower Power

Hi everyone!

What kind of Saturday did you all have?  Mine was spent having a rummage sale at my Dad's. Now I remember why I said "I will never have another garage sale" the last time we had one!  They are miserable! My sister came down to help me and we spent yesterday & today sitting outside in the garage & freezing to death! I think the high yesterday was 53 but the wind was blowing & it felt like about 32 instead. At least it is over.  YEAAAAAAA!!!

I just got some wonderful new stamps from Fourishes yesterday & was so upset that I couldn't sit right down & start exploring the possibilities. But with a garage sale there was no time then. I had to wait until tonite to have fun.  After 2 days of "work" it was so relaxing to come home & take out this first stamp & begin to work on a card. Here is what I came up with for a birthday card I need next week.

I colored it with copics & added a touch of pencil for more detail.  The doily punch is one of my favorites from Cheery Lynn Designs & the lace at the bottom is from a Martha punch.   I stamped the flower pot on to the background paper & paper pieced the pot to blend everything together. 

Well, my eyes are closing & my fingers are crossing so I had better get to bed before I fall asleep at the keyboard!  It's been a LONG couple of days.

Hope you enjoy my zennias!  Catch you all later!!

  3. This is such a beautiful stamp and I just love how you colored the bouquet in these rich and wonderful colors. I hope you made out well on your sale!

  4. This is soooo pretty. I love that you chose this set. It is one of my favs. Each year when I was a little girl my mom and I would plant zinnias. It brings back such special memories for me. She passed away when I was in my twenties and I still plant my zinnias each year and remember those days gone by. Great coloring Sherri. LOVE this. I froze at a baseball tournament all weekend. Brrr.
