April Showers Bring May Flowers……

Anyone who knows me at ALL, and my stamping style, knows that this week, I was doing the happy dance when I HAD to stamp flowers….I will ALWAYS choose flowers over anything else… so being told I HAVE to stamp flowers is like being told I HAVE to eat DOVE DARK CHOCOLATE OR ELSE!! Such punishment is not hard to take!! HOWEVER, the first flower card I made last night was a total dud….and I stayed up way to late making it….and then I hated it! So this is card #2, and I like it a lot better. 🙂 You win some, you lose some, even flowers!! 😉 I colored this using what I call “marker layering” – would anyone want me to do a tutorial on this technique soon? It’s really so easy, and I think comes out looking not too shabby! These great flowers are available in the brand new mini catalog. You can go straight there and SHOP if you want them by the button on the sidebar!! SO pretty!!! So, flowers…..can we do them again next time??? EVERY TIME???? Happy Tuesday everyone!!! Until next time, Karen
