I'm so happy it's Friday. After this crazy week I definitely need some time to unwind and relax. I sat down to stamp this morning and had no idea where to start. So I thought I'd stick with my usual Friday routine and do the Mojo Monday sketch by Julee!
I saw this sketch on Monday and have been mulling it over in my mind. What should I put in that large circle panel? Then it hit me--a dahlia flower!
Now that I have my card posted and I'm looking at it right below Julee's sketch, I just noticed that I put my little side panel pieces in the wrong position!!! Oops! There's no way to move them now. It's Friday, it's been a long week...what more can I say?
For the directions on the dahlia flower, click here. I think I'm addicted to making them. I used the 1 3/8" Circle Punch for the petals on the flower. I love this Afternoon Tea designer series paper. It's only available for purchase through the end of May and then I'm sure it will be gone for good because Groovy Guava will be retiring soon too. I need to stockpile the retiring In Colors.
I tried to stick to Julee's sketch and add brads where she had them marked on the sketch. I didn't think it would look right to poke a brad down through the middle of the ribbon, so I gathered the ribbon and used the brad to hold it in place. Thanks Julee for another great sketch!
I've been working on my stamp room and gathering more stuff that I need to sell or give away. I appreciate all of you who took card samples off my hands. I sent out over 1000 cards. The next thing I need to move out of here is inspiration sheets. If you're interested in a set, check back tomorrow for the details. I hope you have a great weekend! ~Dannie
