I can do that!

Saw this Americal Greetings ad in the May/June Blueprint magazine, and thought, oh yeah. . I can so do that!
And so I did! Here’s mine:

I’ve been on a major reorganization spree again and have even more stuff piled up than the other day, but needed a quick little card for tomorrow. I just had enough room to make this easy peasy 4″ x 4″ card with minimal stuff!

Agapanthus Bloom from Stampendous was stamped in Pixie Pink and Green Galore on Whisper White. Stems were markered in, sentiment (Butterfly Kisses from PaperTrey) and then Icicle Stickles were applied. Once dried, I adhered the stamped panel to a Green Galore layer, and then to the Pixie Pink card, and I was done. Now I need to be done with my cleaning project so I can get back to stamping (and making another mess)!

Have a terrific evening. . . and thank you for all the sweet comments! It really seems like I’m having fun stamping again! I like that . . . and I like all the new stuff that I have actually had a chance to play with lately! We have nowhere to go this weekend, so I can’t wait to spend the whole weekend playing. So many ideas floating around, and hopefully I can get some out of my head and into real life!

    Love your card!!!!!! This is one of my favorite SU color combos. I do this to myself-look at real cards and go “I can do that” but don’t do it. I really need to make myself do it on a regular basis.
