Leaving for Vegas and Pumpkin Flower!


Well I just can't seem to make it to my blog more than once a week. School seems to get in the way of everything fun. But..tomorrow morning we are off to Vegas for a couple of days. Spring Break from school!! I will be making a trip to Viva Las Vegas Stamps while I'm there too! Found that place on SCS! Can't wait to see it, looks like it is stocked full(floor to ceiling) of STAMPS!! How can a girl get any happier!! The only down fall is that I won't have a lot of time to after I get back to stamp. I will have to catch up on my reading before I return to school the following week. I'm going to try to make time because I have made nothing new in the last 2 wks. Urgh!

This card has now become my hubby's B-day card. He didn't like the Owl card I made a month ago. You can see it if you scroll down. I guess he has become picky on details of what he gets. LOL!! And I tried to buy him a card a couple years back and that didn't fly either. I'm going to have to start asking him what he wants before I make him a card. Too funny!!! He is going to have to make due with this one because I had no "real" time to make him a special card.
I know, this looks a ton like the Mojo Mon 77 Challenge, but I promise you, I made it before that challenge!!!!! The stamp set used was Verve-Thankful Blossoms. I stamped the image twice in Sahara Sand, cut it out and then colored in the lines with Pumpkin Pie. I popped one flower on top of the other and used a brad in the middle. Used some copper cord and grey ribbon in the middle. Martha Stewart border punch along the bottom. Paper Piercer was used around the circle under the flower images. Basic Grey was my background paper.
Sorry for such a long post!! I guess I'm just excited to leave tomorrow. I need to finish packing..so off I go!! Have a good rest of the weekend and a good week!! Viva Las Vegas Stamps here I come!!

Brilliant and stunning! If your DH doesn't like this one send it to me and I'll give it to mine LOL. Have a BLAST in Vegas - go win lots of money so you can spend it on lots of goodies. You'll have lots of time through life to stamp so it's good that you're concentrating on your schooling now. Catch ya later. Hugs n smiles.
