Saturday Special!

     Good morning!  Since yesterdays post was a bust, I am going to try and make up for my lack of blogging, lately.  For some reason they never posted the Friends with Flair challenge, over at Unity.

     Today, my card is for the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge.  This week, our challenge is Anything Goes.  This is also a new link to their challenge, as they have moved.

 
     I may not have been blogging much, but I have been creating.  I have been trying to use some of the older stamp sets that are stacked in the closet.  This one was a gift from my dear friend Olga.  It is SU! from back in 2004, called "See with the Heart".  I collaged the stamps and fussy cut after I colored with Copic markers.  All of the flowers are outlined with Sakura stardust pen, to add sparkle.  It just never wants to photograph.  For embellishments, there are paper doily, stitched ribbon, brads, button, and twine bow.  The card stock is a scrap, and the paper is from Basic Grey's green at heart collection.

     I had a request for a new GS photo, so here is Brian at 2 months!  Time is sure zooming!  He had his first big series of vaccinations this week, and he was a real champ.

 
Thanks for stopping by!

Beautiful card and gorgeous grandson, what else could we possibly need? Your card is just lovely and I can see all the hard work that went into this one. There are no words for the beauty in that little boys face. Sorry he had to go through all those shots, but glad to hear he weathered it all so good.
