Quiet Time Card

What a difference an hour makes! During lunch, I was ready to pull my hair out. The baby hadn't slept a wink all morning and was screaming, my 3-1/2 year old wouldn't eat lunch, and I was trying to get my 5 year old out the door to catch the bus. Oh yeah, and I was still in my PJ's! But an hour later, the house was quiet, the girls were sleeping, I was dressed and STAMPING! I sat down with Kristina Werner's Color Inspiration Challenge #42 and came up with this card:

I'm not terribly fond of this greeting, but I don't have any others this size. Most of my greeting stamps are small. Guess it's time to get some new ones. (wink!)

Supplies: Best Wishes & More, All Holidays, Really Rust ink & cardstock, More Mustard ink & cardstock, Kiwi Kiss ink, Whisper White cardstock, Good Morning Sunshine DSP, 1/4" More Mustard grosgrain ribbon

I just love these colors and I cannot believe, I have this set and have never put the flower & the leaf together....just haven't had a chance to do any "springy" things with it! You have inspired me!
