Flowers and Drummers

More VSN work -
For this Rose and Kiwi card we had to include a paper flower - preferably a paper rose. Luckily I had a couple on my desk ready for another project that I'm working on. I'll have to make another one now - but that's okay. This dress is from Sugar Creek Hollow and I'm finally using up some ancient DSP.

I was happy to be able to finally use these orange flowers that I picked up...the only challenge for this card was to include flowers on it. I'm happy with the way it turned out and I was finally able to use this stamp set that has some awesome sayings about women.

Finally - another boring update about Grant. He called yesterday afternoon to let us know that the band would be playing that night - another band had cancelled and they were called. He practiced in the afternoon and and WOW did he nail it. It didn't even sound like he was one-armed. I think this photo is cool because his arm is moving so fast you can still see the design on his shirt - through his arm.

Gotta head out - thanks for stopping by! Joan
