Well, I had some supplies out on the table after creating a card for Marybeth’s birthday blog hop, so I went ahead and made one more card before begrudgingly putting everything away. This was inspired by the Monday Muse #31 challenge by Marion Vagg.
I love the beautiful, colorful, and bold simplicity of Marion’s creations, so I gravitate towards pretty much wanting to CASE them down to the last detail! For today’s card, though, I was taken with the lovely colors, the simple layout, and the row of flowers.
Though I haven’t been creating much this past month, I certainly haven’t stopped myself from purchasing new supplies! From amongst my shipment of new stamp sets, I wanted to try this Stamp A Garden set from Hero Arts. I stamped the row and colored them with Copic markers. Then I made the mistake of adding some touches of glitter pen to the flowers. All that did was make them look dingy and poorly colored, I think.
I had a good time creating the card, though.
I’m happy I had the opportunity to create a couple of cards this week. Definitely a bright spot! We ended up in the hospital ER Thursday night where Hubby was apparently passing a kidney stone or two, or however many. Our boy was very frightened by the whole ordeal, and I tend to freak out about things like that as well, so it was a challenge to stay calm to comfort him while getting DH to the hospital.
Hospital trips are never fun! But I am grateful that it wasn’t something more life threatening. We have some big plans for the next week, and I think we’re all relieved that they won’t have to be cancelled. All that aside, though, I just really love my guy and I’m glad he’s okay! I would be a complete MESS without him in my life!!! I could use a little extra sleep, though, to recover from the insane adrenaline rush…
We’ll be busy again in the next few weeks, so I suppose this is a bit of a hit-and-run post. But thank you for stopping by today. I miss you all and my blogging fun!
