HUMMINGBIRD HAPPINESS...

My husband and I have reached the age of retirement and are enjoying the most simple pleasures, like watching birds around the feeders that hang from our patio pergola. My most favorite are the hummingbirds...

In Pursuit

This hummingbird silhouette from the Bloomin' Marvelous Stamp Set, and the hummingbirds on my patio, inspired me to make this whimsical card...

In Pursuit2

The name of the greeting stamp is PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS!  (Well, of course it is!)

Here's a Sneak Peek at the Vintage Verses Stamp Set...

DESIGNER NOTE:  Even though I enjoyed weaving the Natural Trim Ribbon to make this card, I wouldn't recommend it for a workshop because it is too time-consuming. However, if you are sitting in front of the TV, watching DOWNTON ABBEY, anything goes!

GETTING MY MOJO BACK...

Not having stamped since well before Christmas, I lost my mojo. But with the creation of this simple card, I think I might be getting it back! 

Honeycomb

Notice above how I trimmed the bottom corners of my card to complement the geometrical shape of the honeycomb.  

In the picture below you can more clearly see the texture of the Pool Party Core'dination Card Stock.  I used regular card stock for the honeycombs.

Honeycomb.

The new HONEYCOMB TEXTURED IMPRESSIONS EMBOSSING FOLDER is a must have and can be ordered now by entering #129378 at my Stampin' Store...

Honeycomb EF

The greeting is from the upcoming Sale-A-Bration Vintage Verses Stamp Set.  You will be able to get it FREE with a $50 purchase between January 22nd and March 22nd!

I made this card with the new TEA FOR TWO DESIGNER SERIES PAPER from the Spring Catalog. I'm ready for spring flowers.  How about you?

Trust God

And check out the new Natural (burlap) Cotton Ribbon...

Okay.... Christmas is over. Trees are down. House is back to normal. Schedule is somewhat stabilized... And since I ordered a bunch of new things from the catalog, it's time to get stamping!!
