~Black-Eyed Susan~

black-eye-susan-ty.jpg   Good day!  Well, today was DH’s first day back to work.  I am celebrating by stamping all day :).  I love ribbon, so today’s TLC was right up my alley. 

I have to tell you, it felt strange to stamp this morning without DH hovering over me.  I actually felt relaxed and enjoyed what I was doing.  I won’t tell him that though… lol.  I’m working on a new Hambo sample for later today….. can’t wait to get that done, but first, I must start cutting paper for our upcoming SCS gathering!  19 days and counting!!!  It will be my first gathering and I am so psyched to stamp with other awesome stampers. 

Have you been to a SCS gathering yet?  If so, tell me about it!  I hear they are a blast 🙂 

Here’s my deets on today’s TLC card:

Stamps: Image by Rubbernecker Stamps, sentiment from Fancy Flexible Phrases (SU!)

Colors: Basic Black, Yo Yo Yellow, GP White

Ink: Brilliance Graphite Black, Copics

Accessories: brads, ribbons, dimensionals, scissors, oval punches

TFL!~ and have a blessed day!

    So good to see you post again today and thrilled to hear DH got to go to work today. Work is such a huge part of men’s lives and their self esteem. Glad the break was a short one and he is back at it so quickly 🙂

    Enjoy your day of stamping, and I will enjoy looking forward to seeing your wonderful creations. Oh, almost forgot, love your out of the box work on this card (that is what it’s called right?). Looks like I could just pick the bunch up and put them in a vase. Awesome job..

    Your card is so striking with those colours – looks amazing! Good to hear your hubby is back to work, must be such a relief that he is well again. Enjoy your SCS gathering – sounds fantastic!!!

    I love this card! I love the way the flowers are outside the frame… must try that technique. I must say, I have missed you the past little while. I always anticipate your creations, and lately I’ve been really excited when you post something new. Much of my inspiration has come from the cards you have made. I found you first on SS Reflections, and was thrilled when I found your blog. Needless to say, I am glad your hubby is back to work! lol

    Holly I am so happy that your hubby is back to work. This card is lovely and I really like how you did your ribbon. I wish I could go to your gathering, you know I want to but just can’t manage it this time. I am sure it will be fabulous! I went to one the CNY one last fall and it was so much fun. I wish I could go to the one they have in May but I have a crop the same day.
