Woohoo! I'm on a roll. This is my 6th post this week!! I think my mojo is definitely back =) if only I wasn't bored with most of my stamps, lol. My stamp room hasn't seen new rubber in so long. I did just place a small order yesterday though =). I got From the Kitchen and some other stuff to make a recipe box. I'm really looking forward to starting on that. Oh, and Erin Bailey sent my a GORGEOUS card yesterday with some Bloomin' Beautiful images =). I didn't even like that set till I saw her card, but now I LOVE it! You can see the card HERE. but it's even prettier in person.

I did both of these cards for SC181 on SCS. I love this sketch! And I'm so proud of myself. I haven't touched looks like spring in forever...probably at least a year. =) BTW, I got the piercing idea from Becky Carafa. I just loved the way she pierced around the main panel. I got the color combo from the verve visual blog.
-Stamps-Looks Like Spring and Embrace Life
-Paper-So Saffron, Kraft, Basic Black and Whisper White cardstock; So Saffron and Real Red prints paper
-Ink-So Saffron and Real Red
-Accessories-Mat Pack, Paper Piercer and Build a Brad

The main panel on this card was done by masking and sponging.
-Stamps-Embrace Life, One of a Kind, and Ginormous Flowers (for the leaves).
-Paper-Certainly Celery, Purely Pomegranate, Chocolate chip and Whisper White cardstock; Rose Red and Pretty in Pink prints.
-Ink-Chocolate Chip, Pretty in Pink and Certainly Celery.
-Accessories-Mat Pack, Paper piercer, Pink Taffeta and clear rhinestone brad.
