Flowers For A Friend
This is the last Verve sketch for the month of June and for some reason it gave me grief and I'm not totally happy with the outcome. I'm blaming it on my head cold - at least that is my story and I'm sticking with it.
I found some yummy Kaiser Kraft DP on clearance at an LSS (three sheets for a dollar - score!) and used it as my starting point for this card. Unfortunately, miost of it is covered up on the card. Regardless, I just love it, and if there is still some left next time I pop into that LSS, I'll get a few more sheets.
Everything started out well enough as I followed this great tutorial to make the flower. Then things came to a grinding halt. I was tired when I started this card and it showed as the gears (aka: severe lack of creative genes at work!) were grinding pretty hard and there was a lot of billowing smoke before I got this card done LOL! Note to self: don't stamp at night when one is tired!
Thanks for popping in today. Can't believe tomorrow is the last day of school! My daughter is off the Cultas Lake Water Slides with her class today and my son is off to the local outdoor swimming pool with his. Kids are beyond wound up with summer coming and are very much enjoying what they are calling their three day, year end school party ;o)
Off to go create while I still can schedule it in. Have a great day and thanks for spending part of yours with me :)
