Flourishes for Mercy
It felt wonderful to stamp again, especially with the craziness of the past three weeks now over. I'm hoping to be able to get back into more of a stamping routine before summer hits and the kids are home all day, which always makes it harder to find time to stamp regularly. However, I do treasure the days I have with them in the summer (even though they can drive me nuts at times LOL) because before I know it, they would rather be with their friends for the most part rather than with me. Boy, I'm getting all sentimental on you LOL! Think Mother's Day got me going because I just love being a mom, even though I still have the teenage years to deal with, but knowing that in just over ten years my "babies" will be adults and possibly out on their own makes me want to pour as much as I can into them while I have them at home.
Now on to the card :D When I first saw this sketch the first thing that popped into my head was Stampin' Up's Baroque Motifs set. Just love this flourish image and figured it would be perfect to use with this sketch, and it was. Don't you just love it when things work out the way you want them to -- insert happy *sigh*.
The sentiment is from Verve and I chose it because the script had curls in it that matched the flourish stamp fabulously. A few butterflies, some sheer black ribbon, black and white half pearls and the card was good to go. I'll replace the dark picture with a better one later today.
Wishing you all a fabulous day and thank you for sharing a part of it with me :D
