Inspired by Stamping Inspiration Challenge Guest Designer

Hello blogger friends!  I'm so excited today to be the guest designer for one of my favorite online challenges. For this challenge, we were to use the lovely photo above and the colors blue, green, yellow, and cream.  I thought this stamp set from Inky Antics, Daisy Bouquets, was perfect for this challenge.  I embossed the design on water color paper and did some fancy cutting.  I then colored it and added a flower from Joanna's shop and some bling to the daisy/sunflower.  My DSP comes from My Mind's Eye and the gorgeous crocheted ribbon again comes from Joanna's shop.  

I haven't been able to do many challenges lately.  My sister graduated with her master's degree in nursing and we had a big celebration in Illinois.  It was wonderful to get to visit with all of my sisters this time:  there are 5 of us.  When we were almost ready to come home, we got a call that my husband's uncle had passed away. We left for the funeral in Pennsylvania on Tuesday and didn't get home until Friday.  While there, I got a call that I got the job I had interviewed for:  I start tomorrow at Archiver's.  I'm really excited about that job.  Archiver's is a scrapbooking/cardmaking store, and I'll get to teach classes.  Yes!  Less time on the computer, probably, but I'll get to do something that I love, and I am thrilled.

Thanks for stopping by.  I love reading your comments.
