I decided to switch up my morning routine a bit and actually do some stamping! The floor hasn't been swept and the dishwasher hasn't been unloaded, but I got a card made! Yay! In all reality, I actually sat down to *clean* my desk, but ended up creating with the left-overs from Saturday's card. I am glad that I was able to make use of the flowers that I had die-cut and stamped, but never used. In fact, I die-cut two more for the 2nd smaller flower! I used the same paper as Saturday's card, too.
Originally, I had planned on using the flowers separately, but as I was cleaning, I stacked them up to toss them and realized what a nice statement they made stacked. That was really what got me in the mood to make something from them. The stamp
set has some flower center images, but I decided to add some buttons instead. For the leaves, I inked the leaves with Spring Moss and then added a bit of Ripe Avocado to the edges before stamping it onto the cardsock. The sentiment is from this
stamp set, which I love.
The friend sentiment was made using this
alphabet. I added a few more buttons, scallops and lace and called it good. I didn't even add any ribbon! I know just who will be getting this card along with a sweet treat! I hope she likes it!
So...after it is all said and done, my desk is still messy and the sewing machine is still jammed! LOL!
The weekend after Mother's Day, I took Rowan for a hair cut. It was a sad day, but it needed to be done. She cut it so that I could do it in the Kewpie Doll style or the baby boy comb over. Unfortunately, now that it is cut, the ends stick *straight* up, giving it a true Mohawk look rather than a sweet Kewpie Doll. My sister gave me this really cute shirt that says "Tough Guy" so we went with the Mohawk. He really can pull it off, can't he?
Whenever I see the boys with their "Faux-Hawk" hair, I really want to comment on what a nice Kewpie Doll *do* they have, but I think they might scratch their heads and wonder what in the world I am talking about!
I actually have some really darling Kewpie Doll stickers that I should incorporate into a card design one of these days. I used to use them all the time for baby cards, but got out of the habit as soon as stamping took over my life! LOL!
Thanks for fluttering by!
