I'm a born again Christian, married to a wonderful husband for 17 years. I have three children, and five grandchildren. I also have two step-daughters. We are empty nesters though, so in my spare time, I love to go to my little craft area and make cards. It is an addiction...
I've always had some kind of artistic craft going on in my life. Quilting, Counted cross stitch, scrapbooking, you name it. But when I purchased my first stamps, I knew it was something I could really love. It really grew after I was led to Splitcoaststampers, where I learned a lot about design, techniques and products to help my creativity! Now, I am totally addicted to Papertrey Ink. They have wonderful designers, and fabulous products. And, I've made some really nice blog friends too.
Think Spring. Even though they are predicting more snow tonight! Unusual for Lexington this time of year, but hopefully it won't stick around!
I chose to work with the new Anniversary set, Bold Blooms, and used the photo in the upper left hand corner as my inspiration.
After creating the background, I added a layer of vellum to soften the look. I stitched it in place and trimmed with some fancy scissors. (remember those?). Then I used the sentiment from Natural Beauties, and added some of the die cut flowers and leaves.
