Sending Flowers

I am using some NBUS (Never Before Used Stuff) today. I purchased the stamp set, and dies quite some time ago and since they had never been used before I figured today was the day they would see some creative action. It is just a simple scene but I like it and I think I know some people who would enjoy getting it as well.

The cat, flower blossom and sentiment are from a plate of stamps from Stampenback which can be purchased at I Brake For Stamps. I also used a Teardrop Punch Border die from Die-Versions. I thought it would look like rain drops. And, the cloud die is from Die-namics by My Favorite Things.

I used my MISTI to stamp the designs except for the stems, leaves and grass which I hand drew with some water color pens from Zig. After the main panel was assembled I lined it with black card stock before I placed it on a light blue base card. I also added some bling to the centers of the solid image flower blooms.

This card will be appreciated by cat lovers and those who love flowers too.

I am entering this in the following challenges:

Double D's Blog Challenge

And we did get some April showers here. We garnered about 7/10ths of an inch which is way more than we had previously gotten. So we are very happy for that.

Your comments are always appreciated. Thanks for stopping in and I wish you a great week.

God bless,


  1. I like your scene. The cat is such a great stamp with the design in it, it goes well with repeated design in the tear drops and in the grass. TFS!

  2. Verna, what a fun card. i love the grey clouds and your flowered cat. Thanks for sharing with us at Double D Challenge Blog. We hope to see many more of your creations.
