I've been cruising!!

I haven't posted any cards for a while because I've been cruising in the Southern Caribbean!  The seas were smooth and the weather warm and wonderful! But I'm home and the weather here isn't bad for Feb., but I'm in the mood for flowers and springy stuff so I dusted off my Awash with Flowers set.
Stamp sets - Awash with Flowers
Cardstock - Peach Parfait, Very Vanilla
Ink - Pear Pizzazz, Basic Gray, Peach Parfait
Accessories - Finial Press Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, Stampin' sponge, Stampin' dimensionals, Victoria 5/8" crochet trim

Stamp sets - Awash with Flowers, Thank You Kindly
Cardstock - Certainly Celery, So Saffron, Whisper White
Ink - Certainly Celery, So Saffron, Basic Gray, Perfect Plum, Pink Pirouette
Accessories - Asst. clips, Pink Pirouette 3/8" taffeta ribbon

This is a 4 x 4 card. It still fits nicely in an A1 envelope. Awash with Flowers is a 2 step stamp set and is not really made to line up perfectly. That bothers some people (like me) but when you get your card finished and look at the "whole picture", I think you'll be pleased with the effect.


  1. So cute! Did you have a good time? Was the weather nice and warm and sunny?

  2. Welcome home! This is a cute little card! I agree. I like to have the stamp line up perfectly, too, but when it's done, it always seems to look nice. I'll miss the peach color when it retires.
