Happy Monday!

I had the best of weekends! For sure. A super fun party on Friday after a great dissertation act, no hang over on Saturday and no work all weekend. To make it even better, mom and dad was here visiting and it’s always soooo nice to have them around. ♥♥♥

When they left, I started on the cards for the coming week, like this card for Prickley Pear.

Wishing you well 5

Lot’s of Prickley Pear goodies on this one: Dragonfly from the new Butterflies 2 Clear Stamps Set, cut out with the Dragonfly Die. The dragonfly is copper embossed and sparkles really nice.Likewise with the leafs which are from the Hibiscus 2 Clear Stamps Set, cut out with the Hibiscus Flower and Leaf Die. The sentiment is from the new Hearts 2 Clear Stamps set and finally, loads of stains made with my all time favorite Coffee Stain (good ol’ red rubber).

This card started out as a take on this week’s great Card Patterns sletch – which is sponsored by Prickley Pear!!! But I strayed…  A lot. :)


Oh well, I had fun and the sketch helped get my mojo working.
