Someone Special!

Hello my Crafty Friends!  Hope your having a wonderful day!  Busy with life over here and working on wreath orders!  :>  Today I got my hair done, tried a new hairdresser and she is pretty great!  Last night planned a coffee date for my girlfriends and it turned into a learn to knit night!  I am passionate about being creative and wanted to continue with my journey as a creative artist and want to learn to knit!  My friend Sophie knows how to knit so we planned for her to show me.  Than on facebook I saw my good friend Jenn talking about starting to knit to so I invited her to join us!  It was four of us and while my friend Lisa knew how to knit she said it had been years.  All four of us enjoyed coffee and knit!  Lisa said it encouraged her to knit again and Jenn got some questions answered by Sophie and I got my first lesson!  So I am learning!  I wish I could just sit there and do it but I have a few other crafty things on my plate too.  But I will do it.  Actually I've learned that knitting is becoming a lost art.  Not as many women knit anymore and that is sad!  I have also heard that there is a strong need in my city for what is called a hospital blanket for older patients in the hospital/hospice it's a like bolero sweater that has sleeves and covers the back.  Maybe one day I can knit one of those!  Next I want to learn is crochet!  And soon I will get my mother who is an amazing and well trained taylor teach me again how to sew!  

Today I have a card to share with my favorite stamp Floral Blossoms by Hero Arts.  It's been well a long time since I have touched the stamp.  When I first got it I really enjoyed it and may have overused it.  I think of this stamp as my lucky flower stamp maybe because every card I've made with it has been published except two and one was a Easter card and the other got me to be one of the Top 20 for Gallery Idol 2012!  So if your wondering why did I ever stop using that stamp I am wondering too.  LOL!

I paired this stamp with some pp by Pebbles, stamped the flower with Turquoise gem by tsuenko and moss green by colorbox and fussy cut them.  Paired it with a sentiment from Good Friends by Hero Arts!

Well that's it from me!  I am off to work on birthday invites for Ariel!  She is so excited for her upcoming birthday!
