Stitched Flowers

100_4612 by judkajudy
First of all, I have glued that top left strip down at least four times ... it seems to have a mind of its own.

I've used my new stamp set from Craft's Meow called Stitched Flowers as well as the sentiment from Stitched Sentiments. The flowers are colored with Copics and some Glossy Accents are added to the middle to make the stamped buttons look real!! The background paper is from Cosmo Cricket's Salt Air Mini Deck.

This set is one I will be reaching for often, I'm sure. Lots of pretty posies and leaves.

Well, the summer heat has arrived! Temperatures will be over 100 degrees this weekend. We have some shrubs that are in need of a haircut, but it seems they have to wait.

I've been busy putting the house back together after having the hardwood floor in the kitchen refinished. Note to self: never, never, never use water and ammonia to remove old wax from a wooden floor!

Thanks for stopping by.

Such pretty colors and papers you used to accent these flowers, Judy. So glad you decided on this set of stitched flowers! And now you deserve some fun creative time after all the work you've done w/ prepping and putting your house back together. Enjoy your time!

What a coincidence! I was just looking at that set at TCM this evening and here you are! I love what you did, those colors are super gorgeous! I know exactly what you mean about the glue, it drives me crazy sometimes!

Not only do you share your wonderful cards, but you give housekeeping tips, too?! Must be the heat that's making that strip pop up like that. I loved this set when I saw it. Flowers aren't really my thing, but I love the sentiment set! Hope to see more from you. Keep cool!
