Beate is back and so are her weekly Inspiration Challenges!  Here’s my card for this week’s challenge.


Here is the inspiration piece.  It is by Jo Moulton from Coldwater Creek.


I used Flourishes “Poppy Patch” for the main image.  I stamped the floral images on Basic Grey’s “Ambrosia” designer paper and then colored them in with LuminArte’s Pure Mica Powder in “Real Gold”.  Nancy Kirk has made a wonderful tutorial for using these beautiful powders.  The background is brayered using SU!’s Rose Red, More Mustard, So Saffron, River Rock and Always Artichoke.

I had such a wonderful time with my son and his family on their visit.  But yesterday was very strange.  All day I kept hearing the girls’ sweet little voices.  And then I would remember that they had returned home.  But I do have some pictures.  Here’s one of our visit to the Seattle Aquarium. I had no idea that starfish were so squishy!

I have four sons and no daughters.  Consequently my whole experience in buying clothes for my kids has always been all boy stuff… certainly no pink roses! Well you can imagine my delight to have twin granddaughters (and another one on the way!)!  I took the girls shopping, and we found these fun clothes.  They humored grandma and dressed up for me.


Hope everyone finds some time today to laugh and love and count your blessings.  Happy Tuesday!!
