Yeah baby - a trifecta for me! :D

I am lucky if I get an hour a week to stamp anymore - between our young man being so ill and 'life', there just isn't much time left. But I promised myself if I got some laundry and a few other chores done tonight, I would reward myself with stamp time. HA!

I wanted to participate in a couple challenges - Joanne's "just a little blogaversary" and Lisa's "Poppy Seed Challenge". You can click on their links to see the challenges; I managed to use kraft card stock, faux stitching, a hint of yellow, a flower (make that an MFT flower) - wow, that's more than 3, not too shabby for me! Oh yes, how could I forget? I used Jen's SFYTT also! WOOT, WOOT!!

I didn't use crystals (per Lisa's challenge) but I did use a gorgeous button from PTI - isn't it beautiful?

I edged all the papers with SU! Close to Cocoa. That beautiful flower was inked with VersaMagic Pink Petunia & Pixie Pink; can you see the two pinks in the image? They are oh so pretty and soft! I feel like a new woman after finding some time to create - I really needed the relaxation!

BTW, for my anniversary, my dearest love bought me an iHome system, so tonight while stamping I charged my iPod and listened to all kinds of music - 80's, John Denver, country, AC/DC - LOVE my iPod and my iHome is fabulous! Thanks sweetie pie!!

Hope you have a great week; thanks for popping in, I really appreciate your visit!
