Dear friends, 

Another typical day in the Pacific Northwest.  It is raining (big surprise), but at least its not super cold here.  I have been enjoying much more stamping time these days and that makes me happy.  I'm going to start doing Design Team samples again for Clear Dollar Stamps and life is slowly balancing itself out somewhat.

But today, I've got a card to share with you that uses stamps from Waltzingmouse Stamps.  I love Claire and she has been so supportive of me since my diagnosis!  Her stamps are quality and are just darn gorgeous!  Today's card was made for the latest sketch challenge.  You can read about all the details HERE

Card Recipe
Stamps: Asian Gardens
Paper/Cardstock: Basic Grey
Tools/Accessories: Lacey Squares, Square, Labels 16 (spellbinders), pop dots

Thank you to everyone for such wonderful words of love and support!  You are all such incredible people!

Until next time!
