Things I Have Been Up To and A Card

Hey everyone,
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. 

Flower Card

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!

Cardstock:  Hero Arts, watercolor paper
Inks: Tim Holtz distress inks, Hero Arts
Stamps and Greetings:  Hero Arts
Gems:  Imaginisce

I hope everyone has a great week!  Thanks for stopping by!
