A Bloomin' Sketch

I needed a third card for an upcoming class and when I saw this sketch, I thought it might be just perfect, with the front panel being just the right size for the Dahlia from Bloomin' with Kindness.
I paired Lucky Limeade with Razzleberry and the fun chevron from Summer Smooches. I'm not sure about the woodgrain embossed piece paired with chevron, but wanted some texture..what do you think?

I think my new favourite sentiment stamp is from Petite Pairs:

                       so many smiles...begin with you!

enjoy your day!

London Calling

Here's a British flavoured card in honour of the Olympics.
 My daughter and I were in England this spring for a Band trip. We had a fabulous time together. In Oxford, our last place to visit, I browsed the Magazine stands and bought a CraftsBeautiful magazine with this great stamp in it and it included the papers, too! So I pulled them out to play with finally!

We're continuing to watch all the Olympics. My oldest loves Synchro so we were up this morning to watch the duet finals. Our Canadians routine was so dynamic!

Inspiring Olympics

We are loving watching the Olympics. The Girls have been inspired to work on their gymnastic moves and pedalling their hearts out up and down the road, now! I have yet to see any of the equestrian, but we've been out riding.

Had to delay it a bit this morning to watch our Canadian win GOLD on the trampoline this morning!!!! Wahoo, Rosie!

Last night I decided to make a card inspired by the colours of the Olympic rings! It's pretty simple but I love the colours! These new stamp pads are Fantastic, the image is so rich!
