Monday already?! Where did that weekend go?!

Saturday's weather was sooo nice! DD and I went out and kicked the ball around a bit. Sunday was a reminder that it's Spring and not Summer because it just rained all day. Boooo! Much of this week is supposed to be the same so I'm glad we managed to get some fresh air when we did.

Ok, so today's card shows one of the things I really like about the spring! This image is from Doggone Stamps. It's such a different image from the standard, run of the mill flower images out there, I had to get it. I love how it looks all prettied up and on a card!

I really wanted to create a really watercolored look to this image so I played up the brushstrokes a bit. I used Sahara Sand to create the stucco finish behind the image. The flower box had to be 3D, so I stamped a separate image of it, colored it then cut it out and popped it on dimensionals.

If you haven't checked out Doggone Stamps lately, definitely stop by because they have released some new images this past week. There are some new floral and coral stamps, some more comical characters, more dogs and some more spring/whimsical images. James Duck totally cracks me up and I may have to get him!

Hope your Monday is relatively pain free. Toodles!

To borrow your phrase...Get outta town!! This looks like a photograph! Your coloring is so life-like, it's incredible. Did you do the grafting on the PP or is that part of it? I like it all. Another great one!

This is soooo pretty and serene. I almost feel as if I can push the shutters open and see the room behind them. Amazing.
