Did I mention that my upline has me on a kick of USING WHAT I HAVE?? She has been on a roll lately and as I mentioned in my earlier post....I HAVE WAY TOO MUCH STUFF!! I am a collector....I get such a rush when I receive that beautiful Close to my Heart box being delivered to my doorstep! It truly has become a sickness/addiction for me lately....THERAPY is what I like to call it.
Speaking of therapy....I am completely serious! I am in a place in my life/faith that I NEVER thought I would be in. Who da thunk that one night of bowling with friends would have turned out the way it did (no one died, nothing as serious as that). BUT I won't bore you with the details. Just that my life has not been the same. Although I will say that I believe that things happen for a reason..... To deal with what has happened, I have turned to my passion. Scrapbooking and Stamping. This is my saving grace and when I am in my beautiful scraproom I am at peace.
One more note, I have the MOST AMAZING group of friends that attend my monthly Friday scrapbook group, and they have been such a HUGE support system for me. I am truly blessed to have them in my life! Thank you guys!!
OK Enough of the mushy stuff and let's get onto the card that I created this morning. I was visiting Becky Roberts blog Inking Idaho and saw this super sweet card that she had created. I LOVED the simplicity of it and knew that I needed to recreate it using WHAT I HAVE!
Here is an upclose shot of the flower. I used the Fancy Cuts Botanicals that I had purchased when they first came out, which I had NOT used until just NOW! I LOVED the way it turned out once I distressed the edges with scissors and ink and then curled the edges with the wooden stick that comes with the Rub-Ons.
Paper: Colonial White CS, Juniper CS
Stamp Set: Thanks
Ink: Creme Brulee, Juniper, Spring Iris
Embellishments: Creme Brulee Ribbon, Spring Iris Brads, Fancy Cuts Botanicals

Thanks for stopping by!!
I hope that I have once again inspired you to USE WHAT YOU HAVE!!
Happy Scrapping and Stamping!!
