Once again, I used my watercolor crayons to color my flowers. Honestly, I wanted to use my inks, but I needed to be downstairs with my boys and the thought of hauling all of my inks with me was not an option.- therefore, my crayons made the team. This is a set, Time Well Spent, that was given to Demonstrators from SU!. It is a hostess set, so if you want it I'll tell you how to get it.
Stamps: Time Well Spent, small sayings?
Paper: Kraft, Naturals White
Ink: Close to Cocoa, Basic Brown, Pixie Pink
Accessories: So Saffron and Green Galore brads, pink grosgrain ribbon, Coluzzle circle cutter, Cuttlebug with tag die cut, Watercolor Wonder Crayons-pixie pink, green galore, summer sun, pretty in pink

I took this card from the featured stamper's gallery for inspiration and made my card-see photo below. I wanted to make a simple card without much stamping. The only thing that took time was distressing the edges of the paper. I curled the edges of the flower with my fingers and then used a dimensional to adhere it to the card. The card also opens vertically.
Here's more detail:
Stamps: Delight in Life, So Many Sayings
Cardstock: Certainly Celery, Brocade Blue, Cameo Coral, DP (designer paper) from a simply scrappin' kit from Sell-a-bration. (***by the way, SU! just changed "sell-a-bration" to "sale-a-bration")
Ink: Black craft ink, cameo coral, brocade blue, white craft ink
Accessories: window punch, distresser for paper edges, tag punch, celery grosgrain ribbon, stapler, silver stickles for flower center, dimensional for flower.
Thanks for looking! Happy Stamping!

As I was working on my baby announcements I was frustrated to no end in trying to finish them. I figured out how to scrape the edges of cardstock without going crazy. I am sure I'm not the first one to do this but as I was trying to explain it to Tami over the phone I decided a picture or two were necessary. I hope they are clear enough...
It adds just enough color to the edge of the cardstock. And it saves brain cells!!!!
I have been in desperate need of male birthday cards and loved this idea. I used "Loads of love", "loads of love accessories" and "lively little ones"
