Brighter tomorrow...

Hi everyone,

Thanks for stopping by today, it's an honor to have you here! This is very much a period of transition for me and our family, but for me it is in another way too, as I've recently joined Stampin' Up as an Independent Demonstrator. I'm still getting to grips with everything behind the scenes with that, so please do bear with me.

I'd like to take this opportunity to thank my upline, Vicky Hayes and all the Pinkies team for all your support and indeed patience these last few weeks. Each of you, and all of you, my regular readers and friends are helping me look to the days ahead.

I created this card yesterday and it's so appropriate for me personally at this time...

Recipe ~ All available in My Shop
Whisper white card 106549 ~ Petite Petals Clear stamp set 133155 ~ Gifts of Kindness Clear stamp set 130444 (sentiment) ~ Night of Navy Blendabilities ~ Pearl Basic Jewels 119247 (colored with the medium Night of Navy Blendability ~ Memento Black Ink 132708

I started by stamping the sentiment in the center of  a piece of card then randomly stamping the adorable petite bloom around it and also onto some spare Whisper White card. I colored the extra ones in the lightest Night of Navy Blendability, then cut them out and stuck them over 3 on the card. I've colored the centers of the other flowers using either the light or medium shade and then added the pearls. Before adhering the panel to the base I carefully went around the edge with the brush tip of the lightest shade.

Today is the first day that products are available from the new seasonal catalog and I'll be bringing you some inspiration from that as soon as I can. In the meantime I have lots more creations to share with you from the main catalog. Here's to a brighter tomorrow for all of us...
