Lunch Blogging


Happy Friday! I'm SO glad the weekend is almost here! I wanted to post these layouts that I did while I was at my stamping retreat a few weekends ago. This one is simple and quick and works great for tall, narrow stamps. The girl watering her flower is a Karen Stolper image from American Art Stamps. Friend Angela-digifab-Shober let me stamp off a bunch of them at our last get-together!



This layout uses minimum amounts of patterned paper, so it's a great way to use up small scraps that you may have from other card projects!

The stamp to the left is called "Sidekick Sayings" from Stampin' Up. The retreat had a garage sale the first night, and I picked up this set for $5.00! I love the sentiment on this one: "Let us be grateful to people who make us happy-they are the charming gardners who make our souls blossom. -Marcel Proust. I have QUITE a few people in my life that this would apply to! Have a great weekend, everyone!

I love your cards (as usual!) and how you take, what I consider, a basic layout, and just tweak it by changing little details, like rounding corners.
