I told you it was great!

Too bad yours truly screwed it up a little bit!  Seems to be a pattern for me lately! 😦

I only made 4 back panels instead of 5…..OOPS!!!!  GEEZ Nanc’!!!

My double stick tape is like super glue so there was no going back!

I hope I am forgiven when you see my card!


I must say the Summer Silhouettes Stamp set from Stampin Up…just might be my favorite SU set ever!

It’s my go to set…that is for sure!

I saw this cool sample over on Pinterest from the UBER talented

Amy White

Her card was my inspiration!!! I linked up her blog for you, so go have a looksie!

I am going to be doing more and more blog sharing of all the talented people

out there in blogland that inspire me and keep me motivated in this wonderful craft!

Who knows….YOU could be next!

I think it’s such a compliment to someone if you CASE their work….don’t you agree? 

Thankful Summer flowers

I loved this panel so much that I thought it would be fun to create more then one!

Some details:

The banner die cut and the sentiment is from Verve.

All the ink is also Stampin UP along with the scalloped punch.

I drew the vase myself and I think the rest is self explanatory.

Now head on over to JUST US GIRLS and see what the rest of my

talented teammates have done with this sketch!
