Sunday's cards

Here's what happened in my craft room today. Oh wait, before I get into that, did you watch Tony Gwynn and Cal Ripken get inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame today? It was awesome. I loved their speeches and I even teared up with Cal when he spoke about his family. I'm just an old softie. Ok, on to arts & crafts. This first card was made with scraps. I already had the flowers, leaves and stems stamped out and they were living in the scrap drawers. I just dug them out and tried to find coordinating cardstock. That was a challenge, but I think it came out ok. I've seen a lot of cardmakers doing the curled flower thing these days, so I thought I'd give it a try. The flowers, stems and leaves are Outlines. This House Mouse stamp is one of my new ones. I got it at HM Stamps. I've been in love with this image ever since I took my first colored pencil class at Cat's a year or two ago. I really, really tried to color this image with soft colors, but it didn't turn out that way, now did it? I just can't help myself with those Prismas! They are so much fun to color and blend I just can't leave well enough alone. I have another card in the works, but it won't be done for a while. Hint: I've been playing with my Magenta stamps today.

Those popsicles look wonderful! Great cards today. I didn't catch the hall of fame induction today. Can't wait to see what you are still working on.

I want one of those popsicles. It's been a little toasty lately. Mmm. Looks refreshing. Love the little popsicle embellies too.
