Flowers for U

I am stuck inside all day today because it has been raining here, so I decided to blog hop and came across 2 Sketches 4 You Blog and they have a sketch challenge this week. I also was browsing splitcoast Inspiration Challenge IC217 and just had to play along. I decided to combine both challenges and came up with this card.

I chose to work with this bag seen HERE, It was the flower design that caught my eyes. I used SU Pretty in Pink, Mellow Moss, White and Close to Cocoa card stock. My designer paper is from Basic Grey Porcelain 6x6 pad. Pearls and ribbon was added for the finishing touch

This week over on splitcoast way to use it challenge is CUT IT OUT, and Time with Betty is to focus on two stamp set from ODBD Scripture Collection 1 and 2 I choose Isaiah 41:10 from Scripture Collection 1, because I am glued to my TV watching CNN news about what is going on in HAITI.

It is so sad, and heartbreaking, I cry every time I watch the news and I cant stop watching.

I am back....

First I must apologise to everyone for not blogging for such a long time. I had a lot going on... We move from Okinawa Japan to Bluffton South Carolina. We bought a new house here and it took me a while to get settled in, after living in military housing for over 8 years I needed some color other that beige. Me and my hubby painted and done a lot of little stuff around the house to make it the way we want it and we are still not done, I guess it will take sometime before we get it together. Hopefully we do before our next move..LOL..
Hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season. I sure did. We went to New York and spent some quality time with family. After 7 long years this is the first time we get to spend Holidays with family around. It felt so good.
I made this card for Our Daily Bread Designs Challenge over on splitcoast. Did you all notice that ODBD is now part of splitcoast member companies... Yeah for Kelley!! I am so happy for her...
Anyway on to the challenge... Over on Splitcoast Stampers Kelley is kicking off the new year with a challenge and it is to used brown, punches or dies, Check it out HERE and be sure play along. I thought it was such a perfect opportunity for me to get back into the groove of stamping, I need to get my MOJO back so bad... Man it is hard to get back into the groove of things.
On to my card. I used SU chocolate chip, Old Olive, Pink Pirouette and White card stock along with Old olive card stock. I used MS punch and spellbinder rectangle. I also added some pearls, Brad and ribbon for the finishing touch. My stamp is from ODBD.

Here is a look at the inside of the card.

Hopefully I will be back in the swing of things soon. I am working on a few cards, hoping to post them soon.
