I'm having a good crafting mojo week. I have bursts of time where I'm just "in the zone" craft-wise. And other times, not so much - but we won't talk about that. ;p I love these times where I could just craft all day long and ideas just keep coming. It's fun.

I found this super cute flower at Walmart today - a pack of 2 for less than $1. Of course, I had to get it, and I had to use it tonight. The background is Pretty in Pink (SU) stamped with Crosshatch Background (SU), "wish" (SU), and a candle (TAC). The crosshatch was stamped with Brilliance pearlescent Orchid. Wish and the candle were stamped with Baroque Burgundy (SU). On top of that I layered a designer paper (the company name is escaping me right now), which is punched with a corner punch that is wrapped in ribbon, and a circle punch - to reveal the wish and candle. And, of course, there is that nifty flower!

I did a father's day card for my grandfather last year that I really liked. You can see it here. I decided to revisit that design and wanted to see if I could improve on it. This is what I came up with. I stamped Artifacts (SU) randomly with Brilliance pearescent Rust. I sponged Brocade Blue, Not Quite Navy, and Chocolate Chip on it, and used Creamy Caramel for the edges (all inks SU). I added a blue ribbon and a vellum layer (with Birthday Wishes (SU) and Chocolate Chip on the edges). All of this is layered on Basic Grey designer paper.
