If you've ever had ink on your fingers, glitter on your face, glue on the side of your hand, and paper scraps in your lap, you're in the right place! This is going to be my haven from the other clutter of our world...the place God gives me to chillax, and play. My stamping, card making hideaway! This is where ideas, photos, and info sharing is the norm. And yes, ink on the pinkies is a given for me!!

Here's my card to start you on your way!
I really wanted to do something different with these flowers and I thought a "wreath" look might work. First I penciled a circle, about the size I wanted for my wreath. Then I stamped my flowers going around the circle, erasing the pencil marking after. I used Copic markers R89, E07, E02 for the flowers and YG 99, YG97, YG93 for the leaves. I cut out the wreath and stamped "Hello" in the center, from MFP stamp set "Friends". I used a gold sparkle pen for the flower centers. I added the thin elastic band (I had from a store bought card from a friend) at the bottom. I think the wood look background paper worked nicely. Thanks for stopping by and be sure to visit all the blogs so you don't miss out on their wonderful samples!! We have a great design team!
