Potted Plant


I'm back with another. This is nothing like I was thinking when I started but it still turned out so so. I used Gina K autumn card stock, the Kassie's brocade embossing folder and the Beaded Oval. A paper Dollie also. Not to mention the Martha Stewart corner and border punch. The stamps (Art Impressions) are some I got when I first started stamping back about 9 years ago. I think it was 2001 when I got into it. Anyway, I also added white pearls and 4 red gems to finish it off. I also made 30 5x5 envelopes today. I love making 5x5 cards even if it does cost more to mail them. I had let em pile up cause I didn't have envelopes for them. Now I do hehe. That's it for now. Talked with Shelly awhile ago, they got home at 2AM my time and 1AM theirs. Safe and sound. Thanks for all the prayers. Well lets go put our feet up and watch a little TV for awhile. Yall have a good one and I'll catch ya later!! Thanks to Patti J. this is for Belli Challenge #99 to use old stamps! And sketch challenge at Waltzing Mouse

Well I just happen to really like how this turned out! Reminds me of a picnic...I don't know why,but it does! Anyhoo it's another beautiful creation GF!

Patti J said...

Isn't it a nice surprise when it does NOT turn out the way we meant for it to, but we love it anyway? Lol... Your card is beautiful, Olga, as always! And in reading your post, you should enter it in the Belli Challenge - this week, the challenge is to use an old stamp...I'd say 9 years qualifies! Hugs!!!

Don't know what you were expecting but I think it turned out gorgeous! Looks like it took a long time to do also. Another beauty Olga!

You're sure putting out a bunch of super cards so fast that I can't seem to keep up with ya...
This one is a real gem and I think you did a fantastic job with it. Ditto on the comments above!!! Your daughter is going to love the "Thank You" card. The pumpkin card is just adorable......I love pumpkins and so ready for fall. Hope all is well and Bill is doing okay.
More prayers and hugs on the way.

You are on my mind today!

Such a pretty image and I love the edge punch your used. I love the larger square cards too. I make my own envelopes to match the card...they are a snap with a score pal.

Love this gf....that is a beautiful stamp and you created a beautiful pot of flowers. Love the colors and all the details. Thinking of you this week. Take care.

Neat card...great use of that sketch. Make me some of those 5x5 cards...I have some of those cards stacked up too. LOL. Should follow your lead and do some.

A lot of the entries look awkward to me with the blocky sketch. You softened the harsh lines with your doilies and great colors. This one was stand out to me! I hope to get a chance to enter the challenge...a full week here!
