Blooming Awake.....

Using a fab sketch from Roxie, I made this card in the weeee hours of the morn, after the dog finally fell asleep after an electrical storm and I was wide awake.......has just been one of those days....won't bore you with the gory details of the whole day.

This card was made using the Bloom set recently released by There She Goes Clear Stamps. What fabulous flowers are included in this set along with some versatile sentiments!

For those of you who have been asking, the punch I used for the 'pink' corners and the black border is by Kreaxion. It is a 4 in 1 punch which I bought at the stamp show in June. I really wanted them all, but wanted to be sure they really worked well. The email address I have on the papers for these punches is justimaginecrafts.com if anyone is interested. I think it costs about 16 dollars.

My fav and much used corner rounder is officially called the scallop corner rounder by Marvy. I have found this available at franticstampers.com . It costs about 7 dollars.

Hope that answers some of the questions I've received lately.

Have a marvelous day!!! I hope to do the same!!!!
