Brain Dead!

This girl is just on the brink of brain dead.  Life is good but my brain has had enough this past week.  When this happens the creative process is also DEAD! I went through my "stash" of cards tonight and I found something I was excited to share a few weeks back and it got lost in the other pile of goodies. 

This card was 100% inspired by Shelli Gardner.  When I was at Leadership this past January she was on stage showing her projects.  When she showed us a card that was very similar to this one it was like everything stopped and I had to burn the image into my head.  It was just so pretty.

I loved the simplicity of the card and the vintage pretties it has on it.  I used the Easter Blooms stamp set and Springtime Vintage DSP.  Beautiful and elegant is what I would call this combination.  The Scalloped Oval Punch was used to punch the sentiment.  I just love the simple adornment used next to the sentiment.  They come in Very Vanilla, Rose Red, and Baja Breeze. I used a Mini Glue Dot to keep mine in place and it's ROCK solid.  I added the Baja Breeze Seam Binding ribbon which always brings life to any project. You can find all these great products in my online store
I know that this card makes me want spring even more! How about you?

We are still running high on fevers off and on.  It's the strangest virus! If you looked at these two gems they act completely normal unless they are running a fever.  I feel like the thermometer crazy mom! They run when they see me coming with the thermometer in my hand.

You guessed it… No Fever! Let's see how long it lasts.

Have a super weekend and stamp away!



  1. it's a lovely card; I had the opportunity to attend a Regional event, where Shelli demoed & she was her gracious self; TFS & get rid of that bug!

  2. I've been sick for a whole month! It's been crazy and my head still isn't right. I called the frige the dish washer the other day. Then my girl woke up at 4am with a temp of 104. Then in the morning after sleeping til 11 she had no fever again.????I don't know what virus she had but she's fine now. Maybe it was the 5 hour virus.
    Hope you are all feeling better soon. I love the card by the way. Gotta case that one. 🙂

  3. I absolutely love this card!!!  Not only the C&S but the DSP…thanks for sharing!  Glad your son is feeling better…LOL!
