I came across an amazing blogger the other day. She inspired me in life! Her name is Melissa Bickford and she shared an amazing story about survival and reminded me to appreciate the little things...the every day things. You know something, it was nice to slow down and enjoy simplicity because simple speaks loudly!
This card design is based on Melissa's March 28th card called"Trash to Treasure"...all I can say is I can't believe I didn't think of doing this before! She bought some stamps from Hobby Lobby (similar to the Clear Stamps from M's) and as she was pealing them off the plastic packaging she realized the outline remained in black. So clever Melissa cut them out and mounted them on her card. In my "faux" attempt, I stamped my image on a window sheet with StazOn. I just love how she double punched and created a "clear" window for the image. So of course I CASED this idea, added DP as well as a little real red centre for the flower (to help draw your eye to the window).

Thanks for looking!!! And thank you Melissa for reminding me about the important things in life. When was the last time you just "got lost" looking at the sky? Or when you smelled the apple pie you just baked?
Because I love to stamp and you do too!
