Growing Love.....

Hello dear crafting friends: I've been busy with my grandchildren almost every day, we go out to the pool, the beaches in Chicago, bowling, movies, water park, etc. it's fun but that cuts my card making time a bit, so most times, I start the card and then have to finish it in the next day or two, but we don't mind at all, having our grandkids around, from the oldest to the youngest, is a thrill and we love it.
Anywho, here is this little card I just finished and I will enter it at a few challenges at the end of this post.

This image is from an old Flourishes set called "From the Garden", I stamped it on watercolor paper with Versafine black ink and colored it with SU markers and a bit of Sakura Koi watercolors, the pattern paper is from a retired line from Lili of the Valley, the sentiment is from the set.


This is how the INSIDE of my card looks like.

The sentiment and the flowers are from the set, the die cut for the sentiment is from a Spellbinders set called OVAL REGALIA 

I would like to play with the following challenges.

Until next time, happy stamping.
Hugs from Maria.

Gosh, Maria, almost every card I make is done in bits and pieces over a period of days. I hardly ever have (or make) the time to sit and do it all at once. Nevertheless, it gets done and I guess it prolongs the joy of it, right? You've created beauty with the sweet image and paper, and the vine growing up the card is the perfect accent. Enjoy your summer!!
