Good Friday morning......

to all of you my friends!!!!! I told you all yesterday, that today the sneak peeking continues for some wonderful stamps that will be available on Monday 8th June over at Today's peek is of a wonderful flower I have become to love while we were in, yes, you've guessed it, Okinawa,Japan. I tell you, you can find Hibiscus bushes all over the place and I got to enjoy them daily as they were planted all around the school complex my DD Naomi attended. Let me tell you they are gorgeous in person so I hope I did them a little justice on my cards I have to share today.

Hibiscus Thank You


Paper: PTI white

Stamps: ISC Hibiscus

Ink: VersaColor Orchid, VersaFine Onyx Black

Accessories: Cuttlebug embossing folder Swiss Dots, Watercolor pencils in pink and leaf green, Crystal effects, 13/8" circle punch, dimensionals

Isn't this a wonderful Hibiscus image? For all of you flower lovers out there this will be a great stamp sheet to have as it comes with different size Hibiscus flowers and several sentiments.

My second card is a bit different. I used some gorgeous Basig Grey Sultry DP as my BG and stamped the smaller size Hibiscus on it in VersaMark and used the popping pastels technique to give them some color. As you can see they almost kind of blend into the paper. The reason I chose this DP is because it actually has 2 Hibiscus flowers on the bottom left had corner (in this case they are kind of hidden behind my ribbon, sorry!) The second image, of the larger flower was stamped on some of the plain Sultry paper that is also included in this pad and stamped in ChalkBox Chestnut Roan. All of my colors where chosen from the DP and I think it gave this card a little twist. What do you think?

Hibiscus Hugs......

That is it for me for now, gotta go and feed the kids, again. My girls must be growing. They got up about 7 AM this morning and had some cereal and it is now 9:30 AM and they are hungry again.
