Flowers and flowers and flowers for the Doubledog Dare Challenge

This card is for the SC, which I really liked, and also for the DOUBLEDOG DARE CHALLENGE! This week's hostess is Joanne (sleepyinseattle). She dared us to make a Mother's Day card with LOTS of flowers and some sparkle. I think this dp is all flowers and I embossed eggplant paper in silver using the flower from Embrace Life (SU). For sparkle, I added gems to the flower centers, and I consider the embossed silver to be sparkle too. I hope you will join us for this fun DARE.......please enter DDC in your keyword so we can find it.

Oh No, It's Morning!

You know, I really don't do mornings well. I used to be a night person, but now I'm not good at any time of the day or night!! I posted this card for the SC today on SCS, dashed out to do errands, and got back sooner than I expected. Now I'll have time for breakfast, picking up (UGH!), and cleaning up the mess I made making this card. I bought this stamp over a year ago, specifically because I thought it was so funny! The face on the lion really kills me! Finally I had a chance to ink it up. I hope you like it.

I'll be posting for the next two days, then off for two weeks vacation. DH will be joining Mom and me when he can......this is a busy season for his Track and Field officiating. Mom and I will be crafting, and hitting the few remaining stamping stores in central NH. We'll also be going out for lunch every day, and tooting around in general at a few antique shops. This is when we get a start on Fall cards, and the majority of our baggage is stamping related, of course.

Have a great day. It's gray and overcast here.......supposedly for most of the week. Good weather for making cards, right? Hugs to you all!
