Damask

Stamps: Damask, So Much Love (Lizzie Anne Designs)
Card Stock: Regal Rose, White, French Floral Pretty Papers
Ink: Pretty in Pink, Regal Rose, Mellow Moss
Accessories: Ornare piercing template, Pergamano piercer, Sheer Ribbon (A Muse), Scotch foam tape, Glue Dot


Hi everyone!! I hope you all are doing well!! It's been a very busy time lately, and the kids are off this week for spring break as well. Between diabetes classes, appointments, and the kids being home...I haven't been able to incorporate stamping and blogging into the picture. I will be so happy to get back into the "routine" again, and have missed you all!! Thanks to those of you who have left such sweet comments!!

The card I've made is the first I've stamped in quite a while, and I am really loving the beautiful images in my Damask set I used. I've Rock-N-Rolled the flower, with the pretty pink shades of ink.

Thanks so much for stopping by!! If I don't have an opportunity to post again before Easter, I would like to wish you all a Happy and healthy Easter!! Hugs!!

What a pretty card! I'll take anything but I totally missed Sale-a-bration (I know!) so I'll go with the second showcase, Bob!

Hope you and your boy enjoy Easter. Diabetes sucks...even for a short-termer like me! There are a ton of sites with recipes to engage the sweet tooth for diabetics. If you want some help finding some, let me know!

Hi Rose Ann! Happy Easter to you and yours. I hope the classes are going well. Having worked for a physician and having kids at school, I know how demanding diabetes control can be. Well I own the drawing 2 items, but no lizzy anne, so throw me in for drawing 1. Thanks for the chance!

Happy Easter to you and your loved ones. I love the card that you shared with us especially the double matting and the angle of the flower--all very pleasing to the eye. Both drawings sound wonderful but since I can only pick one I will go with #2. Thank you so much for the opportunity.

carole (TruCarMa) said...

Hi, Rose Ann! So good to see you getting a little time to stamp and blog. I've been thinking about you so much. You know, when I read your post, I didn't know much about diabetes. I had to give a seminar on time management (I know... ridiculous! Me?!) a couple of weeks ago for a womens health seminar. Following me was a doctor giving kind of primer on diabetes. Well, he lives across the street from me, and I'd been thinking of you and your little guy so much that I ended up staying to hear what he had to say. It was so informative and enlightening, and I found out so much. Good thing, I learned, too. Both my dad and my maternal grandfather and aunt have had Type II diabetes, and because of this history, I need to start working to prevent it now! I thank you so much for opening up about what you're going through and raising awareness. I know I would never have stayed and learned so much had you not been on my mind. (((Rose Ann!)))

Oh, and put me in drawing 1! I love that LAD damask set!!!

shawn said...

Love the card! I love both sets.. but I would have to say #2 if I win.. (keeping my fingers crossed!)

Denise ~ Paper Ponderings said...

Beautiful card. And ooh...blog candy! I'd like to win #1!!! Hope it's me!

Pat S. said...

Hi Rose Ann! So glad you're back!
I really like the card you created using the Damask stamp set. But, I don't think I could accomplish anything like that. The SU set is more my speed. Would you please enter me in Drawing #2.
Thanks so much!
