Favorite Wildflowers

Published by at 12:34 pm under Stampin' Up!,Thinking of You

Hi everyone,

I hope you’re all having a wonderful weekend and taking in your favorite football games!  Go Gators!!!

I’ve designed another card using the Birdhouse Flower stamp that I’m sending to a friend to tell her how much I appreciate her and all that she does.  I’ve changed the colors a bit in this design and added a beautiful cross charm.  I applied gold corners and gold edging stickers that I found in a scrapbook shop.  They’re not showing as pretty in the picture as they are IRL.    

I’ve been advised by a couple of you that you have been placed on suspension in my blog.  I’m not sure what that is all about, but it is happening with quite a few accounts with Feedburner.  I hope to get this problem corrected shortly.  I’m not computer literate, so I ask that you please have patience with me while I try to get this issue resolved.

    Can’t begin to tell you how excited I am that you will be designing these stamps and that I will be able to purchase them on-line. Please post that information ASAP!!! I can’t wait. Love this card and the Cross is lovely. I’m excited about your tutorials that will be coming….right? Also, the gold embossing power you use….is it Ranger’s….is it a special detail mixture?
    Your cards, calendars, etc. are gorgeous and delicate!!!
