*****
I'd rather be stampin' than doing chores. So I present today's creation. This card is much different than any I've done in recent years. For starters the dimensions are 3" x 6" when folded. Also I've stepped way out of my color comfort zone, in many ways! Pink (to me) and yellow together? And blue? My trusted color wheel told me it was ok.

Now, once upon a time (in a far off stamp room...) I use to create scenic cards. *All* of my cards contained scenes. Since meeting up with SU! I have changed my focus. Of course, it all still revolves around some form of cuteness. As much as I use to think my style is not cute, I'm no longer in denial. It's a fact. Cute stamps draw me to them. Especially if those cute stamps have anything to do with cats, flowers, or martini's. My (stamp) drawers are filled with cat stamps (and flowers, .... and martini's.) Lol.... Do you ever see me post cards with cats in them? Martini's? The flowers call to me in a way I can't explain. Cats and Martini's draw me to them as well, just in another form ;-). Maybe I need to make one more card today ... cats or martini's- that's the question. Reality is ringing in my ear in the form of the dryer signal loudly proclaiming it's finished. The next card will have to wait for another day.


Enjoy, and as always- Happy Stamping,
