Basket of Flowers by Serendipity Stamps
Hi there all! What a beautiful Spring day we are having here. I woke up to weather in the 40's and now it is in the low 70's with a breeze! I actually opened the windows on my beautiful patio and sat in my wicker swing while drinking coffee this morning! I never find time to do that, but it was so beautiful I just had to enjoy! I did post pictures of my patio back in April of 2008. I call it my haven. I have a fountain behind the wicker swing and love nothing more than to turn it on and listen to the falling water. I painted the fountain myself...but you can hardly tell in those old pictures. At any rate, I feel blessed to have a place that I love to relax in. My card and the little notebook is made with the "Basket of Flowers" from Serendipity Stamps. Isn't it lovely? I used DP from Memory Box Gossemer and Carddstock from Papertrey Ink, I think it is called Mellon Berry. I colored with my Copic Ciao Markers and used some glitter pens to add shine. The butterflies were from MS and from the dollar bin at Michael's...also, the notebook was from the dollar bin at Michael's. I also added Copper Pearls. For the flowers I used Spring Mix from Flower Soft. I am saving this card and notebook for someone very special as a Birthday token. I know she will enjoy it! I tried to get a better photo of the notebook so you could see how easy it was to make...Just took DP paper and glued it all around and added the butterflies and Copper Pearls. Thanks for stopping by all! Have a great "rest" of the week!! Try as I might, Blogger will not let me make paragraphs...I have tried 4 times and I am now giving up, sry this is so jumbled !
