Going Botanical

Howdy Hey!! Now that the boys are off of school my mornings are a bit less hectic. If I could just get the dog to stop whining at 6am all would be right!

Still not a lot of stamping going on around these parts. There was some purging however. Buffalo Stamps and Stuff (the best stamp store on the planet!!) has a garage sale every year for customers to sell off what they no longer want or need. I spent a good portion of my Saturday going through my stuff and managed to pull together a fair amount. Not that you could tell by looking around the room, oy!!! I was there bright and early Sunday morning to set it all up and bumped into several friends and some stampers from Spring Fest (Hi Maria!!). I managed to only buy a few things at the sale and when I returned later in the afternoon, more than half of what I brought was sold.

As usual, Sharon had the store stocked with lots of new stuff. I will wait until I get the funds from the sale to do any serious shopping, but I did pick up a couple pieces of floral paper that I used to make this card...

I just love the blues, browns and oranges. The stamp is from PTI's Botanical Silhouettes, most graciously given to me by my friend Lisa Kind. (Hey Lisa, I heard I missed you at the sale yesterday, bummer!!) I finally got to ink it up, can't wait to experiment some more.

Gotta go, work is calling. sniff, sniff.

Beautiful card Tracy! Glad you were able to use it! I was so bummed that there were no spots left for the garage sale...I got there too late! Now my sale box has to sit for another year! So bummed about that!

Love your card, Tracy! Great paper with your image!
I gotta get to the store for the sale one of these years! I think I can make there to shop now that I'm off work! Yeah, summer!! (Sorry to rub it in!)
