Grateful {For You}

Saturday, November 8, 2014

It's been a while!
You know how that goes....  Sometimes life gets busy.
With physical therapy 3-4 times a week and a new dog it's been difficult to find the time to make anything, much less blog it.
Piper is settling in really well.  She is such a happy dog and I love spending time with her when I get home. 
Recently I placed an order and picked up a few things that I have had my eye on.  One of those things is this Paper Smooches set, Blossoming Buds.  I just love the whimsical flowers and font.  Do you follow the Paper Smooches blog?  Along with awesome projects, they share a Fun Fact.  I love reading these random facts.  It's become sort of a thing with  my husband, too, where I take a screen shot and text him the Fun Fact of the day at lunch time.

I decided to pull out my colored pencils and odorless mineral spirits to add some vibrant color.
Thanks for stopping by. 
Hope you're having a great weekend!

Cardstock: Recollections White 110 lb., PTI Plum Pudding
Stamps: PS Blossoming Buds
Ink: Versafine Black Onyx

  1. I like this stamp set, too, Kara, and I LOVE the little pin-point detail down the side of your card!

  2. Love this, Kara. And, I had to go check my Blossoming Buds stamp set to see that cute little accent stamp you used is in the set.

  3. Pretty! I love the accents on this card, that row of dots and the pinked edge. Fabulous!

  4. Glad to hear I'm not the only one who looks forward to the PS Fun Fact of the day. I, too, have often forwarded them to my DH. :)

  5. So glad Piper is adjusting so well. Love your gorgeous card..your coloring is beautiful Kara.

  6. I bet coming home is extra special now with Piper there. Whenever we get home from a trip and haven't picked up the dogs, the house always feels so lonely. They're with me every where I go! Glad she is adjusting well. Love your card--great colors and details!

  7. Happy to hear your and your new furry friend are doing well! Your card is pretty Kara, great job with the coloring!

  8. You need to tell us all about your new dog on FB.. I am so happy for you.
    Such a bummer about your back hope you will be 100% soon.
    Another perfect card! Love your coloring.

  9. WOWOWOWOWOW!! I LOVE this card!! Such an AWESOME Coloring Job and I LOVE the Design too!! THANKS SO MUCH for playing along with us over on the Paper Smooches SPARKS Challenge Blog and I hope you'll join us again next week!! =) Have a Fabulous Week!! =)
