Happy Saturday!

Today has been a great day so far! I got to sleep in till a little after 8:00 am and when I got up, I announced to everyone that MOM IS OFF DUTY TODAY! lol! I know that I wanted to stamp today so I browsed blogs for sketches that I could use with today's inspiration challenge. There are sooo many great sketches posted today!! I decided to start with Jenn Balcer's challenge and hopefully I will be able to do some more.

Here is what I used for my inspiration piece.

I spent waaaaay too much time on this card, but it sure was nice to be able to just sit and play without any interruptions! I think I may have been trying to make it last as long as I could lol! Do you see those leaves on the sentiment panel? Yeah, all cut out and paper pieced. And yes, I may be a little crazy. All images used on this card are from the set Flowers Of Happiness which unfortunately is not back in stock yet, but I am hoping that it will be here by early next week!! All DP is by Basic Grey. I raised a couple of the flowers on dimensionals and colored them with my very favorite Deco sparkle pen. It gives the same shimmer as a Stardust Gelly Roll pen but it gives way better coverage. It's true love I say.

Here is the inside. I was inspired by Beate's card for this part :)
Close up of the front.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope that you all are able to enjoy your weekend!

This is debilatatingly beautiful. Great work! Which Basic Grey paper line is this and where can you get a Deco pen - I've not heard of that before.
