Been Awhile!

Hi and happy Wednesday!

I feel like it's been forever since I've posted anything here on my blog or on Flickr. I guess it's only been 5 days but it seems much longer than that. It's not that I haven't been making cards because I have. I just can't show some of them to you yet. Two of the cards are going with me to Scrapfest this weekend. The 20 or so of us from the Hero Arts Flickr group (that includes Shari and Jennifer from Hero) are all going out to dinner on Saturday night and we've decided to have a card swap! I'm getting almost too excited! Do ya know what I mean? Have you ever felt that way? When I think about it, I get so happy and excited, I feel like I might just burst! I am planning on taking lots of pictures and because I live so close to the Mall of America, I'll be able to come home each night and hopefully have enough time to upload the photos to share with you. Can't wait!

I do have a card to show you today. I saw this design on Lin's card here and wanted to give it a try. Here is what I came up with.



I used the Three Sunflowers and clear embossed them on white card stock, then used Distress inks in Mustard Seed, Wild Honey, Rusty Hinge and Vintage Photo. The background is stamped with the Dandelion in a couple of the same inks. I've had the ribbon for a very long time. It was a scrap piece from the flower department where I work.

Thanks for stopping by today! I'll be blogging during the weekend with my fun from Scrapfest so be sure to pop in! Have a great day! :)
