The minute I saw this stamp I wanted it. I loved how detailed the shading and texture was and how easy it would be to color. The lilies could be several different colors.
I colored the flowers in So Saffron, Daffodil Delight, Crisp Cantaloupe and Calypso Coral. The stems were Pear Pizzazz. The sentiment was re-stamped, punched out, trimmed, mounted on Daffodil Delight, then attached using Dimensionals. I had not used the Framed Tulips Embossing Folder in ages and I think it added texture to the matte.

The principal of the school where I teach developed an idea for reaching those students whom academics in the traditional sense had not worked. Last year he had hermit crabs and one of my students was responsible for caring them. It was amazing how this chore became so important to this child and gave him purpose. This year he decided we needed a greenhouse. Not just any greenhouse but one large enough to hold an entire class- 24' by 48'. He named it the Living Classroom. Fund raising began this Fall. Donations to raise the $65,000 began to come in. Thank you notes were sent out and consisted of a computer based design, on computer paper, folded, and a short note included. When I saw them I decided we could do better. It has taken several months to get a design together, the stamp carved, and finally a card made. Stay tune to see some of the designs!

I CASED this from the Splitcoaststampers' Occasion Gallery. It is a wonderful resource if you need a card for a special occasion but lack inspiration. The original is by Glenda Calkins.

Did I mention warm, sunny, and beautiful?
I have officially quit winter. I do not want any more cold, snow, or ice. I do not want to get stuck in my own driveway again and have to be towed out. I do not want anymore snowdays.
So if you thought I was missing because of my lack of posts, I was really in the Caribbean enjoying myself.
