Rain, rain and more rain here. My thoughts are with Louisiana and their floods and for all the people in the midst of California fires. Mother Nature is in a really bad mood and can't seem to get out of it. Todays card is for my girlfriends birthday the end of this month. It is a Hero Arts stamp and the banner is also HA. Black cardstock and a snippet of blue cardstock. I stamped the background with black ink and embossed with clear embossing powder. Then inked in the birds and flowers. I am entering this card in https://a2zscrapbookingblog.comhttp://www.cropstop.com/blog/,  http://pixiescraftyworkshop.blogspot.com/. and http://cas-ualfridays.blogspot.com/ Be kind to one another.

  6. One of my favorite stamps & you've used it to perfection, Brenda! Boy do I hope there's a break in the weather when I head to Indy! Being stuck in an airport by myself is a pretty terrifying thought!

  10. Hi Norm here. I didn't really have time to fess up as Mrs A. Caught me with the duck tape and sissors. She wasn't too upset though as she thought a headless statute gave a certain finess to the garden. Hugs Norm.
