Back to Basics.....

And for me the basics are floral cards.  I love coloring floral cards!  And, after the crazy, crazy blizzard that we had this week a nice, spring-y floral card is just what I needed!  We got just under 15 inches in my town. Wild!  The paper reported that the authorities couldn't even get to all the people that were stranded in ditches and so there were numerous folks who had to spend the whole night in their cars stuck in 6 ft high drifts.  Yikes.  And we had just gotten a snow storm a few days earlier too....not bad but still....I am ready for the snow to MELT!  But the upside is that we were completely stranded in the house and so I had to cancel some plans and errands and besides watching Argo with Corm I was able to sit and craft.  Sigh.  So fulfilling!  There is nothing better than canceling the outside world and being able to watch a movie in the middle of the day, read a good book and get a little coloring and crafting in!  I picked up this Northwoods Rubber Stamp image a few weeks ago. I can always depend on Northwoods to deliver me a great image....and most of the ones that I am drawn to are florals.  They also have wonderful winter scenes and bird images too. Check them out sometime if you have a few minutes.  They are a small stamp company located in Stillwater, Minn and if you like to color then you will LOVE their product!   Just thought I would share one of my go to stamp loves with you.  I then multi-matted this cut out image and then  used some Spellbinder dies and a Spellbinder embossing folder as well.  The card is also finished off inside with pink paper and some coordinating  scrap paper borders.  I forgot to take a picture of that  though.  Here is the front of the card however.  I hope you like-y.


Enjoy the weekend and thank you so much for stopping by!

Be well,
Sheila

WOW! Gorgeous coloring, Sheila! Love that beautiful image!

Can't believe you got that much snow! We didn't get one flake here and I'm sooo glad! Although a cozy, snowed-in day of crafting sounds wonderful! Have a good weekend! :)

Me thinks I should stop grumbling about a bit of cold temps with wind! I am so glad we haven't had that much snow here.

Those beautiful tulips in the vase are just screaming spring to me, Sheila! Such a pretty card.
