Oh my BADness! It’s Friday already! I hope everyone has had a good week and you’re all set to enjoy your weekend. You guys absolutely ROCK! I had more responses and emails yesterday that were so helpful. I’ve come to believe that so many of you that responded that I might have a trigger finger – I think you are correct. I did some research and it appears to be just that! I will be seeing my physician. I also have to give a big shout out for those of you who inquired about my wheat free diet. I have so enjoyed the emails back and forth and all the information that we have exchanged. I feel like I have made new friends! THANKS TO EVERYONE!!

I mentioned earlier in the week that you want to check back here on April 1st that Rubbernecker Stamp Company would be releasing a line of stamps. I can’t reveal anything about them yet, but I can tell you that the Design Team has been having so much fun working on samples and previews for you. Actually, I wouldn’t be surprised if you don’t see some sneak peeks appearing on some blogs Monday. Fun, fun, fun!

Believe it or not, I actually pulled myself out of bed earlier today, and decided to spend the morning in the hot tub with my morning coffee. Actually, it was to help with my finger and my back, but oh my gosh – I had forgotten how much I enjoy the mornings lolling in the tub. It seems with the pups running around I haven’t been taking advantage of just lolling around. However, they are spending a few days of Spring Break on the river with Kate and the draw was just too much this morning. I felt totally invigorated!

So, with all this energy this morning I headed to the stamp room earlier than normal. I loved today’s Limited Supply Challenge on Splitcoast. The object of the challenge today is to use an embellishment that you purchased because you just had to have it, and then wondered why did you ever buy that to begin with. Well, I have plenty of embellishments that fit this challenge. The second part of the challenge is to make a floral card. Well, I can do that too!


I inked the brushed lily image with Worn Lipstick and Peeled Paint Distress Inks by tapping the corner of the pad around the image, misted with water and stamped on a piece of watercolor paper that I had already misted with water. While still wet, I added some Tattered Rose to lighten the shades of the lily and worked the darker into the open areas of the flower. I then misted the entire panel with Shimmer Mist made with Broken China and Gold Perfect Pearls. Once dry, I stamped very lightly (so lightly you can hardly see it) French Letter graphic over the image in Antique Linen. Once complete, I sponged the edges with Antique Linen. For my background paper, and I had forgotten I had this. I used Memory Box Enlighten. All the edges were sponged with Peeled Paint, because I had cut the paper down and it left two sides without the original shading. For my embellishment and sentiment, I picked a metal tag line that I just had to buy one day at Archivers. I have picked this tag line up over and over again, and keep throwing it back in the drawer. Today I made it work by taking the chains off either side and running the ribbon through it to fasten to the card. Those brads in the corners are another embellishment I just had to have and rarely use.
