Lavender Sprig and some happy mail!

Hi all! Just a quick card for you today! I made this with the new Botanical Dreams set from Gina K. Designs. It's basically a 10 minute card. Stamp, chalk, color, stipple on some distress ink, add brads, mat, add ribbon, done! Sometimes, you don't need a lot of "schtuff" on a card to make it pretty! That's why I love these new images drawn by Asela Hopkins. LOVELY!

Here's a close up! I actually stamped the sprig twice masking the mid-section of the sprig so that it wouldn't look too heavy.

Now... on to some happy mail! A while back Denise Gooch sent me a fabulous card she made with a little surprise for my girl. First, this card! She knows how much I am a sucker for white and black cards!!

Isn't this lovely? She used a set from Tim Holtz/Stamper's Anonymous that I had never seen before and LOVE! Thank you so much Denise! Your card completely rocks! I am always humbled when people send me hand made things. Makes me feel special-- ya know!!

The next goodie came for my daughter and is just too sweet for words. Remember her mission to run our Women's Run race screaming "You gotta want it!" all the way? You can see the pics HERE.

Well, this is what Denise came up with!
It's a vellum card that she did all by hand with the exception of the block style letters. The leaves and the calligraphy are all done by hand. You should see the sparkle to the ink she used! It's so beautiful! Underneath the vellum, right by the E and K, Denise wrote Ellie's name. So pretty!

Here's a closeup! Man is it hard to take a picture of vellum AND sparkly ink!! LOL!
Thanks again Denise! You're the best!

Hope you are all enjoying a great start to your week! We're off to the zoo. Our little town has a rather small zoo but they just got a new bear and the kids are anxious to "meet" him!!

Enjoy today!

P.S. HOLY COW! I just noticed my counter went past 100,000! You know what that means -- blog candy will be coming your way. I've got to make this one good too!!
