Happiness is....

Good morning everyone...I will be seeing 4 sweet little faces this morning as soon as they all wake up....the Grands had a good time playing the Wii till the wee hours of the morning. This is their last summer hurrah at Grandma's before they have to start going to bed at a decent hour....school will be starting in a couple of weeks and then summer will be but a memory. So, we are making some wonderful memories this weekend!!! Anyway....I did find a few minutes yesterday to make this card. The flower images are from a set called Happiness is....by Nina B. Designs from the Crafts Meow. The roses and leaves were stamped on kraft cardstock with black and brown inks and then the roses were stamped on Soft Sky and and Ocean Mist cardstock, cutout, and adhered over the kraft. The large center rose was popped up for a little dimension.

This is for a few challenges:
1. Polkadoodles - things you would find in and English garden
2. Art Impressions stamps - inspiration from nature
3. Stamp Insanity - use your favorite colors (kraft and aqua)
4. Paper Pretties - no markers
5. Anything Goes Challenge Blog - flowers
6. Splitcoast's DTGD11JulieMLacey's challenge - use kraft cardstock

Thanks for dropping by.....I have got to start making french toast and fruit bowls...yummm!!!

Now this is fabulous! I really love this design, Joan, the way you stamped the roses off the page and then cut out the roses from blue cardstock to adhere on top looks wonderful.

Your school holidays are different to ours....here the kids are only just starting their summer break from school, they get 6 weeks and go back in early september. Hope your grands enjoy the rest of their break. CoB
