An eventful few days...

So, it's been an interesting week.  My DH's car died and I broke my foot.  Bad things happen in 3s.  I'm hoping the 3rd bad thing was when my DH's glasses broke a few weeks ago.  Otherwise, I'm on my guard! ;)  The only thing that has made this week completely bearable was receiving my Hero Arts winnings!!!  They had contacted me to say that the Heyday Sentiments was not available so I was a bit bummed...but guess what?!  It was in the package!!!

See~

Of course, I automatically had to start using these sets!!!  I received the Heyday Sentiments set, the Life Is Fun set, the Delicate Blossoms set, along with some pearls.  *SIGH*  So happy!!!  I'll be sharing the cards I've made throughout today!!!

Here's the first one~

Details~


For these fabulous challenges~

(I used 3 rhinestones, 2 words, and 1 color of paper.)

I have adored this gorgeous poppy image (and the other one in this set) for a l-o-n-g time!!!  I was SOOOOO excited to get it for my very own!!! :)  I started by stamping it on white cardstock and then water coloring it in.  I then dry embossed the panel, added some glitter, rhinestones, and a sentiment, and voila!  I love the way it turned out!

Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek at my card--I hope that you've been inspired to make something today that fits your creative needs and style!  Happy stamping!!! :)

OMGoodness things do seem to happen in 3's don't they?! I too hope that was your third. The blessing (I always try to look for the blessings in these times of 3) of breaking your foot is that you DO get to craft more :o) and the blessing for us is that we get to see what you are making and be inspired by it! Love those poppies and this card. Get better soon. Hugs!!
