I Miss You Sow Much!

Happy late Tuesday everyone!

I don’t know about you but I’ve had a pretty rough winter.  I’ve been dealing with a number of medical issues that have almost stopped my creative mojo over the last few months.  But lately, I have gone to see a new doctor and she has been helping diagnosis my problems and she’s actually helping me work to solving most of them too!  I’m so grateful to have finally found a physician that will listen and not just brush me off.  So with new meds, I’m slowly starting to feel more like myself.  Hooray!

So with creativity brimming, I have a card I created to share with you using this week’s new Splitcoaststamper’s newest Card Sketch.  Click here to see the sketch: SC642.

It’s featuring some fun stamps by My Favorite Things!
I hope you have a great rest of the week!  I’m hoping to see you all Friday with another fun Power Poppy creation too!

Thanks for stopping by!

Power Poppy: Sweet Pea Hugs

Happy Friday everyone!  I hope you have some amazing plans for your up and coming weekend.  For me, it’s the last 2 days of my son’s Spring Break so we’re just chillin’ around the house.

Today I was playing with the new “Sweet Memories” stamp set featuring the delicate Sweet Peas from Power Poppy.

I had fun colouring my blooms and peas with my ZIG Clean Color Real Brush markers. I thought I had used a scrap piece of some watercolor paper but somehow I did not!   Oops!

Here’s a little bit of a close up… I used the fun sentiment from the “Nice Things to Say” stamp set.

Don't forget our monthly challenge "Power & Spark"!  Click the image below for further details...
