Inspired By Nature

Good Sunday morning everyone! Another beautiful sunny day! Not too hot and not too cold! I hope that you all have enjoyed your weekend. I am hoping to do more stamping today and get some more cards ready for the blog. I just realized that I only have two more left!! And I have a lot of really cool toys to play with so today will be a multi-tasking day of laundry and stamping! WooHoo!! I also need to get my 100 cards done for a swap that I am in. My goal is to get them mailed out early this week. Shouldn't be a problem because I have them about half done (the more difficult have is done).

Today's card comes out of a sketch that I have had around. The circle actually is supposed to go on the other side of the card but mine ended up where it is. I just love this stamp set! It was one of the first ones that I picked out from the catalog and then I realized that we got it FREE at convention!! I was so excited! I find that the best way to ink up this stamp is with sponge daubers and ink pads. It makes for a softer look and I just love it. Do you notice the little library clip? I bought those last year during the holiday mini catalog season. And I did not use a one! I was so thrilled when I saw them in the big catalog! So, my goal is to find ways to use them! They are so cute! I hope that you are inspired today! Thanks for stopping by!
