Day three of Flourishes new releases brings me to my final set for July called “Poppy Patch”.  There have been some beautifully colored… oh so beautifully colored poppies shown by the design team members.  But today I want to show this stamp set with no coloring in at all.  These images are so beautiful.  I think they look simply elegant even standing all on their own.


I just inked up the images with my markers and stamped.  Quick and easy.. which I believe also qualifies this card for Sharon’s Stamp Simply Challenge.  Her challenge is to make a thank you card.  Since I again used that wonderful script background stamp from the new Flourishes “Thank You” set on my card, it works!
I added one of my favorite accessories some black flat back Pearls to the center of the poppy. The designer paper is Basic Grey’s “Scarlet’s Letter”. The ribbon is May Arts’ Sheer Polka Dot.

Okay if you have a queazy stomach you may not want to click on the picture below.  But I just HAVE to share.  It’s the whole proud mom thing goin’ on here.  lol  It’s my son.  He is in dental school and yesterday he called me very excited.  A milestone for him as he performed his first procedure that has to be performed by a doctor.  Everything he has done up until yesterday could also be performed by a nurse/dental assistant.  His “patient” is another dental student.  Yes!!  They practice on each other!  lol  He had his turn in the chair, too, and drove home with his mouth completely numb from all the injections!


I LOVE Fridays!!  Hope everyone has a great one!
