Miles Apart

Hi there. How has your weekend been? I have still been feeling a little under the weather and just totally drained. I'm writing now from the couch, where I have spent an inordinate amount of time this weekend...

Yesterday I took some time to use my new Wplus9 stamps and created a card for this week's Play Date Cafe Challenge. The color challenge was bright and fresh this week.

Here is the card I created using the new Folk Art Florals set. I think I love this set - I can't wait to use it again in some pinks and reds. Until then, here is my card.

I was also inspired by the Waltzingmouse Sketch from a few weeks ago. It was a lot of fun building my folksy pattern. I loooove these little flower clusters. I also added in a few bits from Spring Tags, which has some great complimentary images to the Folk Art Florals set. Dawn really did a fantastic job designing these sets!

I feel like I've said this repeatedly over the past few weeks, but I really hope to get back to a regular blogging schedule. I do have some other things to share with you, and WMS is gearing up for an amazingly fantastic release at the end of the month, so there will be a lot going on. I hope you will stop back, I do appreciate your visit today!
