Urban Oasis Designer Paper

Hi everyone…hope you had a great weekend.  Mine was filled with NOTHING!  Yeah!  I haven’t had a weekend like that in a LONG time…it felt good to not have a schedule to do anything.

This quick and simple card is one of a package I made up for my mother-in-law.  She wanted some Sympathy, Thinking of You and Best Wishes cards.  This pattern in the Urban Oasis DSP package is one of my favorites.  On one end, the long stems look simply like stripes.  On this end, you can see the tops of the Upsy Daisy flowers.  I had used the bottom stripes for other projects and the top 4" of the paper remained in my scraps…so I grabbed them and made up a few of these cards.  I simply wrapped some White Taffeta Ribbon around the center of the DSP, adhered it to the base card of Baja Breeze, then stamped the greeting with Basic Gray ink.  There is a nice verse inside, too.  Simple, easy, not much stamping…but a nice card to send.  Sometimes those are the best, huh?

Well, I have a pretty free week and LOTS of ideas in my head of things I want to do and make.  I’ll be working away in my studio!  Yeah!  I have some magazine calls I need to work on, too.  For the past two nights, I’ve had something in my head that I want to make and I haven’t sat down to do it…today’s the day!  Hope it comes out as I see it in my head…lol!

Set:  Thoughts and Prayers
C/S: Baja Breeze, Urban Oasis DSP
