Have a fabulous day!

Hello stamping friends, I hope you are all having a fabulous day and have had some time to create!

I was working on the household budgets and after a few hours of number crunching I needed some time for stamping therapy. I was really in the mood to just stamp, no die cuts, no masking, just plain old stamping. And luckily this weeks colour combo at colour Q came to the rescue. I just loved it and knew it would be perfect for the therapy I needed! What do you think of this combo?


Isn't great. And all I needed to do was get out inks in these colours and a couple of my favourite stamp sets and get playing. I used my much loved flower sets from PTI and Paper Smooches and just mixed and matched. I remembered this card I had seen a few weeks ago by Tracey McNeely and loved how she had stamped just one corner. I decided to case Tracey's card with my own stamps, the colour q colours and some extra texture. I added brads and buttons and use my linen embossing folder to give me the texture I wanted. Thanks Tracey for the inspiration. And here is my card:


I have to say after making this card the household budget has been forgotten and it is time to relax.....what would we do without the 'stamping therapy'??

And as this card uses PTI stamps and their embossing folder plus has lots of texture I am going to enter it into the 'texture' challenge at A Passion for Papertrey.
Also as the card is mainly stamping I am going to enter it into the 'anything goes' challenge at Addicted to Stamps and More

Hope the rest of your day is fabulous x
