*Flowers on a Wet and Rainy Morning*

We're paying for the beautiful weather that we had on the long weekend... it's been raining since Monday night. Not all the time (we're not looking at flood conditions) but we haven't seen sunshine in a while. Apparently it's supposed to pour this afternoon.

I don't mind the rain as I know it means green grass and some blooming flowers, but I do mind it right now as it is delaying the start of some landscaping we're getting done. It was to start yesterday but it is too wet. Hopefully they'll be here next week to get busy. I just want it done... we've been talking about it for so long! I'll have to make sure I head out to take some "before" shots.

I am enjoying a shorter week of work.... 3 days instead of 4. I love having my Fridays off! Don't get me wrong.... The Scrapbook Pantry is a great place to work.... but I like having "me" time too!!

This is one of the cards I created at the Staff Crop a few weeks ago. It was so difficult for me decide what to pack and then have to be in the mood to use only those things while I was out to play. I think next time I will just stamp up some images and take my coloured pencils and OMS and colour.

This was my favourite of the cards I created (and the first one too). I didn't write down what all I used so I'm going from memory and guessing a little. The cardstocks were Whisper White, Wild Wasabi and Purely Pomegranate. I believe I used my blender pen and Purely Pomegranate plus a pink and So Saffron on the flower. The flower is by Lizzie Anne and I don't recall who makes the swirl I used. The patterned paper is one of the new Basic Grey 6X6 pads. I also used a Dew Drop in the centre of the flower and a Marvy Scalloped Square punch behind it.

Thanks for popping by!!

Nancy - This card is beautiful!

I had a friendly reminder from Deb on the Blogger RAK club at SCS that I had not responded to a RAK.
I'm bad.
I have the adorable penquin card displayed in my studio that you sent me but haven't photographed it yet to put on my blog (and I'm such a slacker - I'm sorry!).
I'll do that soon and link back to you!
Thank you for thinking of me and sending me such a cute card - I love this darling little image and the fact that you made the card with pink accents! Perfect!
OK -now, I'm going to peruse your blog some more. It's been awhile since I stopped by.
Thank you again!
Denise

Very pretty card, Nancy. Is the scalloped edge done with your new Marvy cutter? :0)

What a gorgeous card! I must add some Lizze Anne stamps to my "need" list! And that new Basic Grey paper is my favorite out of that collection! A beauty of a card!

Thanks so much for linking my Sketches! by Tamara card to your blog! Just discovered it this morning! Thanks again! You made my day!
