I have a few days off and drove to the beach to spend a few days at Sycamore Springs - a wonderful spa resort. I just love mineral springs. I will spend some time this afternoon on the beach and enjoying the Pacific Coast!
Just a note - I won the Gina K challenge. "Winter Wings" was the featured card! I won a free stamp set... always a fantastic win!!
This is a card I created using the Cricut Expression die cut machine. I have a soft place in my heart for owls. The base card was created using a "gate fold".
The flower image is a stamp from "Flourishes". I absolutely love the flower and ordered it after seeing the beautiful work Theresa Momber created with this flower. To be honest, I have difficulty getting a good crisp image with the stamp. I have one with a peacock and one with a basket of flowers from Flourishes and have been unable to get an image I find acceptable. I have large parts of the image that doesn't stamp. I have tried different surfaces and checked for air spots but still have problems. The flower seems to work the best.
I will be returning home late Saturday. I look forward to making more cards. My mind is busy thinking about possibilities... but I am still having withdrawals. All you die-hard crafters know what I am talking about. Thank you for stopping by and looking at my site. Please feel free to leave a comment!
