Well I am still trying to recover from the weekend (as usual). I forgot to mention this past weekend that my older son had his first flag football pracitce. It was just so darn cute! On his first hand off he scored a touch down! He loved it. For the 5 year olds flag football is basically a fun version of tag just with a football. At first I was a bit nervous but then I saw them just running around trying to catch the person with the ball. That is ok by me. He had a smile on his face the whole time and for me that is all that counts! Plus when we got home he was exhausted! I like that--early bedtime!
I didn't get any scrapping done this weekend. I am falling a bit behind. I did however make a cute card. A couple of weeks ago i made a card with a big flower on watercolor paper and the distress inks. Well I made a couple extra (which I always do when I have all my supplies out). So I needed to come up with a card using those extra flowers and here is what I came up with.
For the card I cut out a card that is 4 x 4 inches and stamped it with the Hero Arts background stamp. I then attached the flower (click on this post to see the directions on how to make the flower). I then attached I Rock gems in the center to put some bling on it. Then I added the greeting and I called it a day! I didn't have a lot of time to come up with something with a lot of details, but I was happy with the results.
My Tip: When stamping an image--stamp a couple of extra so that you don't have to waste time stamping and inking or coloring again. If I am making a card set of 4 cards, I always stamp 6-9. Just to have a couple of extra if I make a mistake or to use a later date. I just put the extra images in a baggie and wait till I need them!
