Happy Watercolor Swap

When I was in Houston at Leadership, I got 50 swap cards and about 40 3D swaps. I ran across this cute one from Diane Squires made with the new Happy Watercolor stamp set out of the Celebrate the Everyday catalog.
The simplicity of this card is just beautiful. Crisp cantaloupe card base, whisper white mat using the SAB Decorative Dots embossing folder. She used crisp cantaloupe ink and the flower and sentiment is stamped in Always Artichoke. There is one large pearl in the center of the flower and then three tiny ones scattered on the background. 

So simple and so elegant. Hope this inspired you today.
Go play and create something that makes you feel good.
Happy Stamping!

Valentines Day

I am trying to get caught up this weekend and realized I did not share my Valentines with you.
Awhile back, at Christmas, I saw a beautiful plate done with chalk board in the center as a Decor item. LOVED IT!! So, I thought how cute it would be if it was done on a red charger for Valentines.
My Sweet husband got me some roses and a bear with chocloates so I made a little display to enjoy for the weekend- here is a closer look
I think I am going to try this on a silver charger plate too. It should be beautiful too.
For work, I made some roses with dum-dum suckers in the center-

And this cute treat holder and card is CASED from Connie Stewart-loved her 5 ways to use the Sweetheart Treat Bags

Thank you for stopping by today! Hope you had a nice Valentines too.
Happy Stamping-
