Painted Petals

I have been MIA for a short while.  I’ve been busy, but I don’t remember what I’ve been busy with.  I guess that is another sign that I might be loosing it!  LOL!

Seriously, I’ve been substitute teaching two days a week for the last few weeks.  However, in all honesty, last week was Spring Break, and I didn’t do any subbing.  I did spend most of last week cleaning out my basement.  Unfortunately, I am not finished with that project yet, but it does look a thousand times better.  I did a little baking last week as well.  That is something that I don’t do all that often.  It isn’t like we NEED that kind of stuff, but I got a craving for something home-baked.  I made chocolate raspberry orange bread on Friday.  I had some raspberries in the freezer from our bushes and decided to use them because I know I will get more to freeze this summer.   It was quite tasty, even if I do say so myself!  I’ve also been stamping and this is one of the cards I came up with.  Thought I’d better share it since Sale-a-bration ends today and I used a Sale-a-bration product on it.  I also used a pencil eraser to make the yellow polka dots and flower centers.  I read somewhere that someone had done that.  I thought it was pretty neat!

Happy Stamping!

Painted Petals & Blooms

I just love this stamp set and coordinating paper!  Don’t you?  Sometimes when I get paper this pretty I don’t want to use it because I am afraid of ruining it.  But this time I decided to take a chance.  This is what I came up with.

Decorated Card Box Drawer with Cards Figure 24

Six cards made out of that  sheet of 12 x 12 card stock you could set into a frame that comes in the Painted Blooms Designer Series Paper pack.  You get two sheets, so you can actually make 12 of these awesome cards!
