Friendly Flower


Hi there!  Life's been a tad busy lately so today was the first time I've gotten into the Craft Cave in a week.  I never quite realize how much I've missed it until I walk in there and get hit with that wonderful paper smell.  I love it!  (Yes, I am a big dork!).  Anyway this card is for the Paper Players colour challenge.  I pulled out some SNALTED (Severely Neglected And Left To Die) products - Papertrey's Polka Dot Basics II and some Flower Fusion sets.  It felt good to give some love to some old stamps especially when there will be new goodies arriving with my brother when he visits next week.  I went on a bit of a shopping bender but a controlled bender… well, controlled for me anyway.  I figure it's allowed since I'm saving money on shipping.  :)

Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White) Bazzill, (Always Avocado, Coastal Cabana) Stampin' Up
Stamps:  (Flower from Flower Fusion 1, Stem from Flower Fusion 8, Sentimnet from Flower Fusion 11, Polka Dot Basics II) Papertrey Ink
Inks:  (VersaFine Onyx Black) Tsukineko, (Calypso Coral, Always Artichoke) Stampin' Up, (Fresh Snow) Papertrey Ink
Die:  (Notebook Basic) Paper Smooches, (Fresh Cut Grass) My Favourite Things
Gem:  Recollections

Hi Jen. I love this simple, wonderful creation. I also really love your new acronym. Glad you are giving the depths of your stash some love before your new shipment arrives. That always helps with the guilt!

Jen, I also love the smell of paper when I walk into my stamp studio. I'm laughing at your "snalted" acronym...too funny. Your card is so cute! Love the layout and the clean design. Thanks so much for joining us this week at the Paper Players. :)
