 I am using an old Penny Black Pansy image. I stamped it twice and cut some out
 of the second  to pop dot up for extra dimension. Using some lace and dyed ribbon 
to give it a more vintage look. The edge was punched with a 
Martha Stewart punch and the sentiment is mounted on a 
Spellbinder Fancy tag.

Are you ready???

 Its a color challange this week and the color is White!
You may use black and a small amount of one other color. I added a
 little grey for shading my flower and  green for the leaves. A embossed base

MFP Stamps Challenge #25

Happy Saturday, its time for a new Challenge at Marks Finest Papers. 
 A Twisted Easel Card is the challenge this week. There is a tutorial here to
 show you how to do it. This is the first time for me but it was easy with
 the tutorial. I have used an image from the No Sour Grapes Set.Im not a
 wine drinker but I love grapes and cheese and  I
 really like this image, it just speaks to comfort to me for some reason.
 My card is simple not much embellishment, had lots
 of ideas but  because time is so short
 these days just happy to get it done!.We are having the
major plumbing issues that old houses seem to have and My mom is still in a
 rehab facility so I spend most my time after work there. Everything 
is in a uproar it seems...just gotta smile and keep on!
My teammates made some very nice inspiration for you so check them out!

 and there you go. Not my fav for sure!
I have had several of you ask me about my mom. Thank you for your sweet inquiries, she is doing
 better but its a slow go! I spend lots of time commuting after work to see her. Sorry I haven't been
 around to comment much but there just are not enough hours to go around right now.

Challenge #19

Good Morning Friends, today at MFP Challenge it is CAS week
with a Spring Theme. Cas continues to be a hard one for me lol!
So this week I have just smeared a touch 
of blue across the card then added my Lily. The image is from the
Lily Set I colored it with some water color pencils
and then cut it out and mounted it.
 My sentiments are from the
Pussy Willow Set and seemed perfect for this challenge. So its 
a quick card this week and you can join up with us all week long.
My teammates have some lovely inspiration for you to check out too.
 Hope to see you posting you creation!!

Happy Mother's Day to all who Celebrate tomorrow!!
