Floral Statements Thank You!

Hello there and how are you! It's that CRAZY time of year here in Northern California where we're ready to put away our summer clothes and get our winter clothes out....but we just can't quite do it yet! It's a nippy 38 degrees here this morning but it's suppose to be a BEAUTIFUL 83 degrees this afternoon! So our dilemma around here is how many layers do we wear and do we build a fire or turn the heater on in the morning! We are up in elevation just a bit from town (we only live two miles out)...but that has been enough all week that when I take kids to school we get to see the clouds from above...so actually, the fog is socked-in down in town! It's amazing how beautiful it is! I'm gonna enjoy this day...hoping you do too!

I just finished a seven day challenge in a team Facebook group...everyday there was a different challenge. One day the challenge was to use our oldest (but current stamp)...mine was Lovely as a Tree.  One day the challenge was to use our newest (and current) stamp set. Another was to use our BIGGEST stamp set and another was to use ALL of the stamps in a set.  

Today's card was Day #7 and the challenge was to create a card and MAIL it! I make a lot of cards. I make cards for my classes.  I make cards for church and mail them out...but I RARELY make cards and send them out from me. So...because of this challenge...I have a new goal! I'm gonna try to make a card and mail one out once a week! If you'd like to help me with this goal...and would like me to send you a card leave a comment, email me your mailing address or message me on Facebook and I'll pop one in the mail to you! I've been wanting to get on the ball about sending cards for a long time. It's kind of an oxymoron to be a card maker but not a card sender...perhaps I'm just a CARD HOARDER! 



Today's card has a Whisper White card base. The first layer of Basic Black is 4" X 5 1/4", next layer of  Calypso Coral is 3 7/8" X  5 1/8" and last, my stamped layer of Whisper White is 3 3/4" X 5". The image I stamped is from the Floral Statements stamp sets. I stamped it in Memento Black ink and colored it with my Stampin' Blends! They will be available for customers to purchase on November 1st and you are going to LOVE them! I'm so EXCITED that Stampin' Up found another...better manufacturer to provide them! I LOVE mine!
To finish it off I added some Calypso Coral Ombre Ribbon, Basic Black Bakers Twine, Linen Thread and a Corrugate Element with a White Perfect Accent. 

I really like how it turned out! I hope the special friend that I sent it to ENJOY's it!






Well..that's all for today!  Now I have TWO goals...send cards and use all of my stamp sets! These are GOOD GOALS!! 

Thanks SO VERY MUCH for stopping by today! I LOVE sharing what I LOVE doing...with you!! I hope you have a wonderful day and that you find just a moment to create!
