Stamping 411 ~ SSC 213 ~ Summer In Symphony!

Our garden of vegetables and flowers are singing a symphony of song!!! I was captured by the beauty of my flower garden as I strolled the yard this morning ~ it literally stopped me in my tracks ~ then I heard Dean say 'what are you thinking about honey?' ~ oh, nothing, just gazing at our flowers!!!
We both stood there for awhile and just admired the handy work of the Lord!

Oh how I wish my picture would do justice to this ~ in real life ~ it is absolutely stunning!!
and now on to the sketch challenge from the gals at Stamping 411 ~ and I had so much fun incorporating  a flower into my card. I love creating flowers!!! and a bit of smooch and there you go! 

oh what a fun card to create ~ and I did it again ~ I can't remember where I actually saw the tutorial for this flower (take note Denise, literally!) ~ I used three different Stampin' Up Flower Punches and it worked out fabulously ~  I sure hope you have time to play along with us this week ~ can't wait to see what you create! Grab your stampin' up and have some fun!!!
A HUGE thank you to Nikki Spenser, she mentioned in her sweet comment who the creator of this flower was, the wonderful Joanne Leddy created this and her tutorial is excellant. Be sure to check out this fabulous tutorial!

I'm so glad you stopped by today, if you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask ~ have a wonderful day and I hope you're enjoying your summer thus far!
