IC225 ~ Thymes & QFTD03

WOW this has been one busy week. Then throw in the problems on SCS with the upgrade to their server, I haven't had time to do much blurfing or stamping. I am hoping to get caught up next week when the boys are at my Mom's.


This card is for the Inspirational challenge and the Queeen for the Day Challenges on SCS. This week's Inspiration is from Thyme. As always Stef finds some fantastic inspiration -- I don't know how she does it every week. I chose to grab my inspiration from this bath salt envelope. This card is also for the Queen for the Day Challenge. This week's Queen is Pat Smethers. You have to go look at her gallery, it is AMAZING. I chose to card this card.

I used the retired hostess stamp set called Echoes of Kindness. This is one of the sets that I HAD to have, and I have never inked it up. Well I think I'll will need to ink it up more, this flower is so pretty. I colored the flower in with inks and a blender pen. I kinda like the grey on the stems and leaves -- what do you think?

Thanks for stopping by!!
