Pomegranate Wishes

My son has a new job and his boss' birthday was today. Since he is unable to drive (surgery), he asked me to take him by so he could tell her
Happy Birthday.

Well I certainly was not going to let him go empty handed. So, I decided to make a birthday card for her. I knew I wanted to use my new pomegranate paper, but was unsure what to combine it with. I started to look at some of my designer papers and decided on this piece from Basic Grey.

While I was in the process of making the card he started to get a little anxious and wanted to get going. I am not crazy about the main petal prints panel, it wasn't really what I had in mind. But under pressure I started to rush and this is how it turned out. Not what I pictured exactly but I still like it!

Basic Grey paper, Pomegranate paper, and shimmery white. Pomegranate ink and white grosgrain ribbon were all used on this card.

Sorry about the picture, I used my daughters camera and I am not used to it. My DH has hijacked mine and I couldn't find it!

Sorry for the long hiatus! I have had no stamping energy lately and this has been very hard for me.

I have several things I need to get done as far as stamping projects go and to overcome this has been hard.

I received a lovely birthday package in the mail a couple weeks ago. For the life of me I could not understand why I was receiving a package from a stamp company that I had not ordered anything from! Well to my surprise it was mailed as a birthday gift! Jody had ordered it and had the company send it to me directly! Thanks so much Jody!

I have a passion for lighthouses and beach scene stamps. So, she was so kind as to send me a sheet of rubber from Cape Arago Rubber Stamps that had lighthouses on it!

I have been dieing to try to stamp with them but with this no mojo problem I have been having I had some trouble at first. This isn't really that great, it really needs to be colored more but I was afraid I would mess it up. So, I stopped with just doing the sun!

It is ok and I am happy with it. I used the new stamps, Groovy guava paper, chocolate chip paper, and a designer paper from K-ology. The friends stamp is from one of my Paper Trey sets.
