Garden Delights

Hi there blog friends, where have I been?  I know, right!!  My blog has an owie that I’ve been trying to fix.  For now I’m going to leave it stand – it’s really nothing you can see but something off kilter in the background.  I think that if I come back to it with fresh eyes I’ll have better luck.  In the meantime a card to share, because I have a table full of new stamps that are absolutely calling my name and because I’ve missed you all!!  What a way to celebrate spring but with new Quietfire Design stamps!!  This wonderful design is from the Garden Delights set (of eight stamps) and  was crafted to fit Spellbinders™ Floral Ovals, so that’s what I used to show it off – I cut two (one mauve and one tan) and simply trimmed out the oval using the piercing dots as a guide!!  I stacked it on Spellbinders™ Labels Seventeen and layered it on top of a panel embossed with Spellbinders™ Whimsy M-Bossabilities.  The center piece is a sticker from K & Company.

I hope you’re having a fab week and a wonderful stroll into spring!!  I am :-)

Stamps: Quietfire DesignGarden Delights set of eight stamps

    Hi Becca its good to know you are okay-and that its not you that something is wrong-but material stuff. I think this card is beautiful-love the background-its beautiful. I know that you are busy but just wondering if you are going to show how you made a little box sometime back and used MS punch–the card was also amazing. Hope you can figure out the problem with your blog. I enjoy your beautiful creations but most of all just knowing how things are going. Take care.ReplyCancel

  • Charlotte Schleue ZweigoronApril 11, 2012 - 8:22 am

    Thank goodness you are back! I had started having “mother” thoughts; imagining you unconscious by the side of the road or in the hospital with amnesia. (Did you ever have “mother” thoughts like that?) At other times, I thought you might be gallavanting around and having a good time without US!! How I missed you! And it appears I am not alone. Don’t ever think it is your design talent alone that keeps us coming back. Your spirit shines through your art and we like what we see, Becca. You are back and creating things as gorgeous as ever!! Happy, happy, happy!ReplyCancel
