Rainy Day, Blogging Day!

I can't go playing in the garden: its raining cats and dogs! So lets see what I can share with you today...

I needed some feminine greeting cards this past weekend, and as I just bought Rhonna Farrer "Elegant Flourishes" clear stamps, it was the best occasion to try them.

I used some Prima Paper flowers, little pearl and some gems. I also used "Bonne Fête" rubber stamp by PSX. I like the result... So I made some color versions of the same card: pink, orange, black and white, turquoise and lilac!!!

Rainy Day, Crafting Day! I'm going to clean my little craftroom so I could take pictures and show them to you one day!

Well Said!!!!

While surfing the blogworld, I found something that make me smile a lot....

We all, cardmaker lovers, should have this text on our scraproom wall!
Thanks to Lisa Somerville for sharing this!
You can find her blog HERE.

A Cardmaker delivers the most welcome kind of unannounced visitor: A handmade card.
A card touches us - somehow, a small folded piece of paper can comfort, celebrate, reach out or just say hello.
Creating a handmade card is an honorable and important task.
As a Cardmaker, you are entitled (but not limited) to the following rights:

You have the right to take as long as you want to complete one handmade card. This may be five minutes or two weeks.

You have the right to send a card for no other reason than to show off your new stamp, embellishment or technique.

You have the right to create a fabulous card for your husband, partner or roommate - just because you know it will stay in your house.

You have the right to spread your cardmaking things out all over, just to admire them.

You have the right to purchase a certain cardmaking item for no other reason than because a) you like it; b) you think it's cute; c) you'll never find it again, or; d) you know you'll use it someday.

You have the right to reserve using your most precious supplies on cards only for recipients who will truly appreciate them.

You have the right to a workspace of your own. This may be the basement, your college student's old bedroom or the kitchen table.

You have the right to make cards when inspiration strikes - whether the dishes are done or not.

You have the right to request peaceful, kid-free, stress-less cardmaking time - guilt-free.

You have the right to let the handmade card be the gift, too.

You have the right to value your personal style.

You are creating a treasure - and part of that treasure is you.
