Express yourself

Everyone at my house is still sleeping so I had to take this photo in my kitchen instead of in my normal set up.  I think it turned out pretty good for no better lighting then I had.  

This spring has been so very busy that I have not gotten to stamp like I would like.  I used to be able to stamp just about everyday and post very regularly here but life has thrown some "lemons" and while I am trying to make "lemonade", I do miss my stamping!!

This card was very hard for me mainly because of th sketch I was trying to use!!  I thought it was an extra hard one.  If you want to give it a try swing on over to SCS and give it a whirl--most of the gallery entries made it look easy but I struggled with it.  I also incorporated the Ways To Use It challenge--beautiful buttons--into this card.

The DP is from Sweet Always, I also used Not Quiet Navy, and Whisper White.  The heart on my mug is paper pieced with a scrap.  The flowers die cuts from Stampin Up! and the stamps are from a retired set that I just love--Express yourself!!  I stamped the inside with this sentiment:  "Friends are the coffee breat in the business of life".  That is how I feel about all my friends here in blog land!! Thanks for stopping by to visit my blog.  I am hoping that I can get back into stamping and visiting you all!!  Have a great weekend!!
