Is there something missing

Hello Friends,

I have the wonderfully opportunity lately to chat with a couple of old stamping buddies.  I told them that I had not seem them stamping at all lately. I wasn’t surprised that the said they said they had just gotten away from it, other things good in there and no mojo.  I think that happens to all of of us from time to tome.  We go through dry spells, things don’t look the same any more.  All of these are very true for me I know.

It has been very difficult since the fall on Dec 13th of last year.  Christmas was a blur, and still today walking that far is difficult.   I missed my stamping, my coloring and my creative juices were going unsatisfied.  Mike had set up a temp office in a room we were not using for me.  My next step was to move some of my stamping things to the new office.  I am really liking it!  I have had plenty of time to play with the newest Flourishes stamps.  I am having fun.  Coloring for me is a great release of stress relief.  I don’t have my desk top computer, but so far my good old laptop of 15 years is still kicking and it’s enough for now.

If you have not been stamping and coloring I am going to suggest you do so real soon.  Are you aware that Flourishes has been releasing five new stamps each release?  That is more that we ever did during the old Flourishes ‘s time.  And the art is really good.  Rubberstamp Madness , the magazine, is looking for entries for there Christmas edition.  They are really focusing on tags.  That’s a good place to get back in to stamping as tags are small but there are so many possibilities.

New week we will host a blog hop to show you the new stamps that are due to arrive shortly.  They are all unique and fun, but I am not spoiling the surprise as to what they are, so join us please starting on Tuesday of next week.  I hope you will follow each lady and leave some love.  Ill be back soon.

Until later.

Ciao,

 

Make A Scene With Flourishes

Hello, Stamping Friends.   It is Shirley posting today with a Friends of Flourishes challenge.  The challenge for this week is to “make a scene”.   Making scenes is one of my favorite things to do when I am making cards.  You can make scenes as simple or as involved as you like.  Today I used a bird image from the Flourishes Endearing Rose Stamp set.  I used a cloud template to make a sky with puffy clouds around the pretty birds sitting on a branch.

Be sure and stop by to visit there other Friends of Flourishes DT blogs.  Take a look at the scenes they have made to share with you.

Layers, Layers and More Layers!

Hello, Friends.  I challenged the team to use layers this week.  I had intended to add a few more layers to my card, but I ended up liking it with only about 4 layers.   I love roses and so did my Mom.  I’ve been thinking about Mother’s Day and how much my Mom loved roses.  In Florida, roses are more than a challenge so I am especially sorry that I didn’t know about Knockout Roses while my Mom was alive.  I would have loved to plant some for her.  I have a rose card for you today using the Flourishes Endearing Rose set with a sentiment from Thistle.  I’m thinking of you, Mom!

Friends of Flourishes Masculine Challenge

Hi, it is Shirley posting today.  It is my week to host the Friends of Flourishes challenge.   I challenged the team to make a “masculine” card.  I think most of us seem to have a hard time making cards for the males in our lives.  Really they aren’t that hard.  I think most of us believe that a masculine card is not suppose to have flowers on it.  That is not necessarily true.  Men like flowers,  just like we do.   They just don’t want all the ribbon and foo foo that we ladies like.

For my card, I used the Flourishes image from the “My Cup Overflows”  Stamp set.   My sentiment “relax” is from the Flourishes Fuji Mum set.  I thought this would make a perfect birthday card.
