Annabelle May challenge and New Member Welcome!

My membership has increased again with 5 new members! Wow - this is fantastic! I am so happy all of you joined and I am really happy that who ever joined me in the past has stuck it out with me. Thank you to all of you. You are very much appreciated! Let me welcome in the order of joining:


They all have wonderful blogs - go over and say hi and get inspired - and tell them I sent you ;)


And for all my new member I have my traditional welcome picture:


I could not resist to pick another photo from my recent visit to the Corning Museum in upstate New York. This wonderful glass bowl is by Jay Musler, a contemporary American glass artist. I think its amazing - I hope you like it!


But now back to card making.....

 I have been quite busy lately with work, so not much time for stamping.... but I wanted to make a card for this month Annabelle sketch challenge for quite a while now and I finally succeeded...


I only have one of their beautiful stamp sets, so here we go again - its called Garden Silhouettes and thankfully there are a lot of stamps on this set. I heat embossed the flower spray in clear and sponged the background. I then took the same stamp and stamped it in the same ink color again. Added some Paper Candi, colored with Copics.

 

I am also linking this card with the Simon Says Wednesday challenge - anything goes

Thank you so much for your welcome and the glassed image is stunning...would make a great backdrop scene with a digi image in front....your gorgeous card has the beautiful colours of peace, blue and white...when my mum died nearly three years ago every thing I bought was blue, never liked it before, and to be told it is a sign of peace and communication with your loved ones...so no wonder I love this creation.xx
