Hi All! Sorry I have been absent. I have been visiting with my parents and just couldn't bring myself to go away and type on the computer rather than visit. We had a fantastic time together and it will be a true memory of time well spent with their grandparents for my daughters: Nicki and Meghan. We worked in the garden together, played badminton, played on the swings, went for walks and bike rides and just had an awesome time!!

Today will be a short post since I would like to get creating, catch up around the house, and catch up visiting other blogs I have missed.

The card I am sharing with you today is for CC228 (to use pretty in pink, really rust, and not quite navy) and the Mojo 96 sketch. The colors were really quite out of the box for me. Once I settled on the SU Bloomin Beautiful set, it all began to flow.
Stamps: Bloomin Beautiful
Ink: Not Quite Navy, Really Rust, Pretty in Pink, Old Olive
Paper: Not Quite Navy DP, Pink Pirouette, White
Accessories: EK Success Morrocan, circle nestabilities, Fifth ave Floral Embossing plate, White Satin Ribbon
Thanks so much for stopping by. I so look forward to visiting your blogs and being inspired by your creations!

So happy you had a great visit with your parents. I remember playing badminton in my grandparent's yard when I was a little girl. what great memories you are making for your daughters'. I am fortunate to still have my grandparents in good health, but those memories are still precious. I love your card. That is one of my favorite SU stamps of all time. Great colors.
