I created this little 3x3 card this afternoon to be sent to Close to my Heart as part of an art submission for a chance to teach at convention this summer. I thought it turned out sweet, but simple. Sometimes, simple is hard for me because I always feel like it is missing something.....
It is hard to tell from this picture, but I added Prisma Glitter to the little dots along the stem, each flower petal and the inside of the flower. I had tried Bitty Sparkles first, but they were too big and took away from the daintyness (is that even a word?lol) of the flower and flower stem.
The papers are from the Close to my Heart paper pack "Caboodle" and the stamp set is "Smiles". I could play ALL day with these colors and stamps! These very well could be my most favorite since "Animal Cookies". TOO CUTE!!!
Well, my laundry is creeping outside of my laundry room and is starting to take over my kitchen....not quite sure how that happened soooo fast....LOL I guess I had better go put some bath towels in, cuz drying off with a hand towel is NO fun! Ask me how I know......ROFL.....Hey, I eventually got dry after the 2nd hand towel....HA
Thanks so much for stopping by today!
Maybe you will be inspired to move out of your comfort zone and create something different than your norm..... If you do, leave a comment and link to your art! I would love to see it!!

A simple 3x3 card.....
Life has a way of throwing us curveballs when we least expect it. What we do and how we react to those curveballs, is up to us. Who would have thought that at the age of 45 I would be starting my life over, reinventing myself and finally figuring out what I want to be when I grow up. Well, ALMOST! lol I want to play with ink, paper and ribbon and share Stampin' Up's wonderful products and opportunities with you!! I am THRILLED to be part of this company and am looking forward to seeing where the wind takes me. Happy Stamping!!
