Stamping Simply

Back to work means less stamping time!!  I wanted create something clean and simple for my stash of cards!!  This stamp set is new to me and I am in love with how pretty and delicate it is!  It is called "Growing Green" and is a nice set for making quick and easy cards!! 

The cardstock is Naturals White and the matted piece is in Early Espresso.  The flower is stamped and handcut with my SU scissors!  Love them!!  Then I sponged the flower with Pretty in Pink and Regal Rose Ink.  Of course I added a pearl to the flower.  I used my Certainly Celery marker to colour the leaves.  The sentiment comes from last years level 3 hostess set!!

Corey and I also went for another hike on New Year's Eve.  It was bitterly cold again but beautifully sunny!!  It is Corey's birthday tomorrow, January 5th!!  He is such a sweetie and lots of fun!!!  I thought I would share some of the crazy photos we took!!  You will see why I love this guy!!  He makes me giggle and pretty much laugh my head off!!  When we first met I asked him how old he was, he replied "Eleventeen" and I thought to myself, "Oh good 'cause I'm only ten!!"  He turns 39 tomorrow!  But he is still "eleventeen" to me!

Thanks for stopping by! Off to bed!!!
