LOVIN' EASTERN BLOOMS AND WOW FLOWERS!

Hi all!! Well, Kayla started soccer last night so I sat at the soccer fields for two hours getting bit by mosquitos but she had a great time - LOL! I think next time I will bring some images to color - hey, maybe someone will be interested *wink* So, today I am sharing another one of my cards for my upcoming class. I used Eastern Blooms and Wow Flowers again - just love them! And, of course that yummy new dp - it's all gone so it's a good thing my new orders (count 'em, three boxes, teehee) are arriving today with all my new dp - can you guess what Iwill be doing tonight??!! Can't play until then, have to go see the doc, think I may have a stress fracture in my left leg - does not look good for me *sigh*. And, I have to clean out Kayla's room since her new bedroom furniture is coming tonight - don't they know I have new stamps to play with???!!!!! So, stay tuned for some new stuff to share over the next few days! I hope this one is okay for the class, I was experimenting and kind of like the way it turnd out - what do you think? Yes, I am fishing - not feeling very confident about this card class, since I usually teach all scrapbooking *gasp* - it's true, this will be a first for me!! So, here is the recipe - think good thoughts while I am at the doc, I am soooo not wanting to wear a brace!

Meg Giroux said...

Cute card Alex!
I hope your leg feels better soon!

Beth Norman said...

Goodness, you are a busy lady. Hope that stress fracture heals. How painful it must be. Can't wait to see what new DP you got. It would be blue, I suppose--LOL. Cute card you made here today.

Catherine said...

Love your flower..too cute!

Latisha said...

is it a chin splint or a stress fracture? I think they will tell you to wrap it and keep pressure on it. If its caused from running you need to run on a soft surface, and stretch really good and ice them. Jess got one a few years ago, painful. I hope it will mend fast.

Card classes are so much easier than scrap book classes, you will be fine >"<
Fun card too!

Rose Ann said...

ScrapMomOf2 said...

Oh no, I hope your leg is OK! Mosquitoes are the worst! I like the card very much! Have fun with your new goodies if you get the time to play!

Deborah said...

This is a wonderful card for your card class ALex! Yummy papers! How about some gentle "OFF" spray for those nasty bugs? They also make a natural one at the health food store. When the fall weather comes up there, you'll be fine! Oh goodness your poor leg! I'll be praying for you! Maybe some physical therapy? Hugs, Deb

Shannon McGann said...

What a gorgeous card! I love the ribbon stem! I love the new dp too - mine's almost gone. :( Don't you just love it when the UPS truck pulls up!? LOL!

Sorry about your leg - I hope it's alright and heals soon. Have fun playing with all your new stuff!
