FSS Hollyhocks

Hello to all! Hope you have had a great week! Geez mine has been very very busy with work...not much time for myself. I created this card last weekend and am just now getting to post it! Better late than never huh? Well this card is showing off the beautiful hollyhock image from FSS store called Hollyhocks. Tracey has a variety of precolored hollyhocks in the colored set...I chose the white ones. I added some clear stardust pen to the image to add a little sparkle. And now what about that awesome frame? Isn't it just perfect for this image? I used the Japanese Lace & Flourish Frame by Cheery Lynn Designs. I purchased the die from Beverly at Classy Cards 'n her a visit...she has a very nice variety of supplies in her shop and she is just fab to work with. Her customer service is very quick!
Well, this weekend is going to be a busy one for me...getting packed up to leave on Sunday for Arizona. I attend a conference 2 times a year out there for work. And ohhh geez, yes, I am flying out on Sept 11. I have flown several times on Sept 11 since that dreaded day in 2001 and really have never been concerned or afraid. I have to admit, this year, with all the chatter going on about the possible threats, I am a little uneasy.
I hope to get to play a little bit tonight or tomorrow and have another creation for you before I go. Thank you so much for stopping in to see me! Have a great weekend!

Doodle Pantry Quirky Ostrich

Good morning! I have been asked to be a Guest Designer for the month of September for the Doodle Pantry! I am so delighted to be able to work with this talented Design Team for the month as well as tickled pink to work with Laurie's images! We are working with new images that will be in the store this month and I chose to work with the Quirky Ostrich. How cute is this little bugger???!!! And colorful! What a great pack of images you receive...I used the colored image as well as the designer paper that comes with the set. There are several sentiments that accompany the set as well...including the one on my card! Just a fun image to play with. I will be back a few more times this month to show off some more of my Doodle Pantry creations. Hope your Labor Day is a great one and thanks for stopping by! Be sure to check out the rest of the Doodle Pantry's DT members creations!
