Finally!!

Hello! I hope you are doing well. We are still in the midst of the Jones family "somewhat extreme home makeover' but I just couldn't stand not creating any longer. My studio has it's new flooring, and the furniture is back in place, but most of my supplies are still packed away. I am taking the opportunity to evaluate my supplies for what to keep and I'm also re-organizing the space for better accessibility & functionality.

So today, I pulled out a few new things to create this card. It took me forever. When I have a pause in my stamping, my mojo seems to go on vacation. :( The paper and the stamp were a SU! special showcasing new products in the upcoming 2011-2012 catalog. This card was made for several challenges. First for the ColorDare's 100th Challenge (CD100) to use Baja Breeze, Rose Red and Sahara Sand. I LOVE these colors--especially Baja Breeze {yeah- it's a blue}. The second challenge was Splitcoaststampers' Free for All challenge (F4A64) to use a phrase as the focal point. Also I made this card for the Splitcoaststampers' Inspirational Challenge (IC284) where I chose this glass lampwork bead from Doodletart for it's colors and flowers.

Have a Great weekend!
Marilyn
