Happy May!

Hello!

Tonight I sat at my desk to stamp just because for the first time in over 5 months. I have been making cards for holidays/birthdays as needed and attending card afternoons, but to just sit in my room to stamp for fun? Nope, it hasn’t happened in a long time.

I pulled out all of my Stampin’ Up! supplies that are retiring – why? I rarely ever part with them lol…but I thought it might be a good idea to try and use some of it up before ordering from the new catalog next month. I’m sure there will be one or ten things I must have lol!

For tonight’s card, I cut up card bases and then 3 panels of white cardstock in varying sizes. I picked one and decided to use the tall flower from the Avant Garden stamp set. It was a Sale-a-Bration set I got a few months ago and never inked. I paired it with the Blooms & Bliss paper and used colors from that palette to watercolor the flower.

Thanks for stopping by!
