Clever title huh? Not! I decided instead of staring blankly into the computer screen waiting for some kind of inspiration to hit me I would just title things and move on.
Here's another take on the Sweet Summer stamp set. I really like the swirly stamp with the leaves and berries. It is pretty forgiving so even if you don't connect them perfectly, it stll looks good. Besides you can always cover up with a flower or some other embellishment. I guess I gave away why my flowers are placed where they are!
I stamped this yesterday and did the paper piecing of the flowers but really did not know how I was going to finish it. This morning I pulled out my scrap bag of Poppy Parade and in there were these leftover ric rac strips and the fun polka dots from the In Color Designer Series Paper Pack which is a level 1 hostess gift choice. In no time my card was done. Don't you love it when that happens? The thing that took me the longest was cutting out the little bird.
