Sale-a-bration 'Avant Garden' with 'Delicate Details'!

Wow......I LOVE the way this card turned out!  It is just very stunning in person!  This is totally a "Susie card".  And if you know me- you know whenever I use this Wisteria Wonder color & green together, it reminds me of my dear grandma!!! 

I shadow stamped this flower.....which means I inked it up, stamped it onto the Whisper White card stock, barely lifted it & moved it slightly & stamped it again!  I then stamped the flower stamen in the flower center using the Black Memento pad. And the stem of the flower is stamped in Wild Wasabi.

This is also a fun fold card!  Check it out when it is opened up!  CUTE huh!  

I did some cards last fall with a fold similar to this one, but they were going the other direction.  (horizontal, not vertical)

You can check out my other cards by clicking-

Woo Hoo!  This card is one that everyone joining me to stamp this week for my monthly card classes will be making!  I hope they like it as well as I do!!

You can't tell by the photo, but I used the Stitched Oval Framelits to cut out the Basic Black oval.

And check out the cool 'Delicate Details' lace stamp that I added to this card too.  I stamped it using the Whisper White Craft pad, onto Basic Black card stock.  It is very subtle, but just added that little touch of elegance too!

Yesterday was a busy day with all of the boys.  When they left last night I worked on stamping stuff all night!

Today is going to be a crazy day........This morning Deke is off early to chore.  And I'm off early to go get Brody.  I'll bring him back to our home, get his breakfast ready & leave him here with Deke to take him to school.  Deke will then go to the courthouse for awhile & then he'll be heading to Mt. Pleasant for a meeting that he has there today.  I'm going to go with Manda to take Drake to Bloomfield to see his doctor & he has an early appointment.  He is still sick and we've just got to get him better.  He is super bummed that he is gonna miss pre-school again. 

Tonight is my farmer night helping Deke with the hogs!  Thankfully it isn't going to be super cold out for a change!  We'll see what time I get in.  I need to cut card stock- so I hope I get to work on that too tonight.  Plus I still have our Christmas tree up & it needs to come I have room to set up tables & chairs for stamp classes that will be here this weekend. 

Gotta run.....I hope you have a WONDERFUL Wednesday!!
Happy Stamping!
