Asian Inspired


Hello everyone....this is going to be a short post today...it's my anniversary...well, my second one this year. You see, we not only celebrate the anniversary of our wedding but the anniversary of when we met...we met 23 years ago today!!! George is taking me out to lunch so I better get on the move...LOL!!!

I  decided to make a card for the Waltzingmouse Sketch challenge this morning.....I haven't played with my Waltzingmouse stamps for quite a while!! Stamps from the Asian Gardens set were stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black and the flowers were stamped with Pool Party....tiny pearls were added to the flower centers and the twine is the finishing touch. One of my church friends has been ill so this will go to her tomorrow.

Thanks for dropping by...have a great day!!! Now I'm off to the Lone Star Steak house for lunch....whoohoo!!!
