Today . . .

. . . started off with a lot of cleaning (including my VERY messy craft room). There is nothing like a fresh cleaned house and the weather outside (photo taken just a minute ago) just makes it a perfect day for stamping!

 I made this for the current Hero Arts Challenge - I've always wanted to make a "just married" kind of card with that cute "VW Beetle" stamp. Who wouldn't like to go away on honeymoon in a pink car with pink flowers - haha !!

 The Hero Arts layering paper is folded inside out - and I stamped the same Large Bold Line Flower on the inside to match the outside...

I also made these little stamped stones. I am in love with flat stones!!!

I hope you are having a great weekend! Jan is in the kitchen preparing some nice lobster tails for the barbeque - yummy!!

Cute french word

I love the French word for Garbage bin "La Poubelle"!

I wonder what the garbage men will say tomorrow morning - 
or will they even notice the new decoration ? :-) :-)

Have a great Monday!

Inspired by Yesterday's Hero Arts Flickr Scramble

Have you ever participated in the Hero Arts Flickr scramble? You are challenged to make a card (or more) in 90 minutes and it is hosted by flickr members. It is really fun!!! 

Unfortunately I missed it yesterday - but I was still inspired to make a few quick cards of scraps (scraplings) inspired by yesterday 's scramble hosted by Sue.

Stamps: Hero Arts E5388 Traditional Butterfly, S5216 grid pattern, LP141 Together, LF_Sophie's Sentiment.
Paper: Bazzill, MLYB
Inks: Ranger distress ink Broken China & Vintage Photo, Memories white dye ink, versamark.
Other: MFT die, twine, foam adhesive.white embossing powder, 

I used the outline from the die cut as a mask to make a white background - to make the blue die cut pop!

This is quite simple - using scraps of MLYB paper and one stamp!

Have a great Sunday!
