Classic Blooms

Classic Blooms by judkajudy
Here comes a little story:

Yesterday, as part of my birthday present (I like to celebrate for a whole week!) my DH and I went to look at a new TV. Because it's birthday week, he willingly stopped at Michael's where I used my 50% off coupon to buy this Hero Arts stamp, Classic Blooms. My intent was to hurry home and make a card to enter in the Flower challenge for this month.

So, here is the card. Again using embossed resist and Distress Inks. I was pretty pleased with myself, having finished in time to upload for the challenge. That is, until I checked and realized the challenge deadline was last Thursday!

So, here it is .. just for you!! And a celebration of Memorial Day. Hope you are having a weekend full of fun and family. Or maybe catching up on the things that don't always get done during a busy week.

Thanks for stopping by!

Aw.. Judy, this card is absolutely gorgeous! It's a winning card in my eyes! Happy Birthday/week to you! A special birthday should be a stamping day and the kind of day that we are able to use 50% off coupon at Micheal's, don't you think? Looks like you had it made :) HUGS!

Happy Birth-week to there a special song I should be singing? I love your story, I can totally relate.
I am loving your gorgeous card, those colors are fabulous, it's a winner in my book!
Just made a graduation card with a friend while our guys installed a new faucet and hose in my's a good day. Hope your day is wonderful too.

Still a beautiful card even if you missed the deadline, so glad you shared with us anyhow! Love the rustic tone on the flowers, so pretty! Happy Birthday to you and I definitely believe in celebrating all week! One day is just not enough, did you get a TV as well?

Wowzers, Judy--this card is GORGEOUS! I absolutely love it! The colors, the design, the distressing. Perfection! So sorry you missed the deadline, but it's a winner in my book!

Missed this one earlier Judy.... it is a stunner. Hope birthday week went well... I might just have to try that one... although I started almost 3 weeks early as hubby bought me new boots last week!
