Hello Life, Hello 2015


It's been a very long time since I've written on my blog, and I resolve to get back to doing this on a regular basis.  I always enjoyed doing card challenges to get me motivated and inspire me.  I had a lot of health issues last year that kept me away from my crafting, but I am feeling great and am anxious to resume life as I love it.  So, last couple weeks I spent preparing samples for our Stampin' Up! open house, and now it's time to blog and share a few with you.
Today I joined a new group on Facebook started by Connie Stewart and Stampin' Girls Gone Wild.  I love her projects, and decided it was about time I show her what I have to share, too.  So, this was a card that I made for the challenge and posted just under the deadline tonight.  I used one of my favorite color combinations that was suggested this week by CAS Colours & Sketches Challenge #107 to use Cherry Cobbler, Crumb Cake and Basic Black.  I also got inspiration from another challenge from the Friday Mashup Challenge 193 to Create a project with the "Triple Layer Technique", Create a project that's "Floral", or Mash it Up! and create a "Floral Triple Layer Project".  I think it was accomplished with this card.  Hope everyone likes it. 
STAMP SETS:  Petal Potpourri, Petite Petals, Hello Life
PAPER:  Stacked with Love DSPstack, Crumb Cake, Real Red
INK;  Cherry Cobbler, Basic Black

Stop back again!
