Did Ya Miss Me?

It was a real slow week for the creative juices here. I woke this morning, did a bunch of cleaning, and promised myself I would start stamping. Little did I know that the wind that has howled all night would do it even worse this morning! The result was no electricity for the last 4 hours. You don't know how much you miss it until everything you try to do, stops you dead in your tracks. Anyway, I am back up and running for now, and here is what I created by sunny window light.
My card is for the Just Us Girls Challenge #72. It is a color challenge and we are to use aqua, melon, and kraft. Boy are they pretty together! The card base is Kraft from Gina K. Designs. I had just bought a new paper pad from KaiserCraft, called Secret Bird Society, and it was perfect! I even scored the bird and the scallop edge from the extras that are included. The sentiment is from Clear Dollar Stamps. My ribbon is from an old stash bought from QVC. The roses are Prima's and the pearls are from Recollections. The pearl head pin is from the bridal dept. at Michaels, and I colored it with a Copic Marker.

I am so excited that I actually have another card ready for a post in the morning! Have a great Saturday evening!

Glad you made it through a scary night and downright dingy weather! Even in CA. it's pretty dreary out! So, congratulations to you in finding your mojo and sharing a charming glimps of "possibility!" Yeah - SPRING! Your use of the JUGS colors is stunning! Thanks for sharing your talent with us! Yipeeee!

Gosh, how pretty is this! I love the bird! So glad that your power is back on. A year or two ago, we lost power for several days. At day 5, I simply HAD to go to another town to a motel. My hair badly wanted a shampoo with HOT (not bottled) water! I would not have made a very good pioneer woman...lol! Gorgeous card, my friend!
