Sending You Flowers

Happy Super Bowl Sunday! I’m in it for the commercials and the Half-Time show! LOL! I had a fun day at the Store! Taylor came by to visit and so did Heather! Heather brought Starbucks with her, bonus points! I made a few cards and got some other things done too, a very productive day! After work I had Chinese with my Parents and then came home and cleaned out my bedroom closet. Can’t take all of the clutter any longer, everything must go! Today Renee has a Super Bowl Crop and I have a party to go to later with Heather. Should be a fun day! 😀

Before I get to today’s post one of our blog friends Ann left in the comments yesterday that her sister works in hospice care and one of the residents is turning 104!! She asked that if anyone has time if they could send a card to wish Miss Irene a Happy Birthday! Lets see how many cards we can get to her! You can send the cards to:

Karen Powell
13 Branch Street
Suite 100
Methuen, MA 01844

Thanks in advance!!

I have a fun sort of single layer card to share with you today. I took a piece of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card stock and cut it to 4 1/4 x 11 and scored it at 5 1/2. I made a few masks and then stamped the flowers and leaves from the Hero Arts For You Flowers Color Layering Photopolymer Stamp Set in Soft Pink, Bubble Gum, Ultra Pink and Lime Green on the card front. I skipped the second layer on the leaves. After that was finished I die cut the love from the Hero Arts Love Stamp & Cut Set from the card front. The card was placed into my Mini MISTI and I lined up the love stamp, opened the card and stamped it in Intense Black three times to get a nice crisp impression on the inside of the card. The centers of the o and e are glued to the inside of the card with my Quickie Glue Pen. I added the rest of the greeting to the front and one to the inside with more Intense Black. All that was left to do was to adhere a few Pretty Pink Posh Clear Droplets with some Multi-Matte Medium and the card is finished! I really “love” the negative die cut card front and then the inside of the card! Looks complicated but was actually really simple and fun! I hope that you enjoyed today’s card! Thanks for spending some of your Sunday with me and enjoy the game! (or commercials and half-time! LOL!) 🙂
