Some Flowers for You!

I feel so lucky to have had some time recently to stock pile some of my cards *insert shocked face*. My hubby is good to me and let me have a few hours of stamping to myself last week and I can't believe how many cards I was able to create. It seems that not long ago it would take me hours to do one. The nice thing about having a few cards stockpiled is that when it has been a long day on my end I don't feel the pressure to create something. I am sure you all know what I am talking about.
Although I made this card last week, it is still fresh and new for you! I have had this big Heidi Swapp flower kickin' around in my stamp room for some time now and have been anxious to use it. I FINALLY found a home for it.

so cute, yes it is good to have a stock pile. I went into the flower shop that I sell in and they had sold 30 cards in 10 days....and they aren't my only shop!! Tough pace to keep up!

beautiful card! I know exactly what you mean. I have not had the time this week between work and some really fun classes at Impress Rubber stamps! I guess I can't complain too much - just no time to share photos.

Great card. I've been trying to keep ahead of the game too with a little card stash. Blogging shouldn't be forced, so it's nice to have a few fallbacks to take the pressure off.
