Do You Dream of Romantic Mediterranean Moments?

This beautiful card depicts a romantic, Mediterranean Moment and has me dreaming of one!

This dreamy card is a swap card created by fellow demo, Anita Watson. 
I have to confess that as pretty as the Mediterranean Moments stamp set is, all I could think of when I saw it was, “Wow, that’s a lot of coloring!”
Most of my stampin’ friends know that a lot of detailed coloring is not my thing! However, Anita managed to pull off this fabulous card with just a wee bit of watercoloring, changing my perspective just a bit! Plus, she pulled in the Brick Wall embossing folder, which is perfect! I know that the sentiment points to Valentine’s Day, but to be honest, this card has the potential to be so much more than a Valentine’s Day card. Don’t you agree?
For your convenience, I have listed most of the supplies that she used creating this card below. Clicking any of the images will take you to my 24/7 online store where you can have fun shopping for your creative supplies!

Share The Fun! Open Houses, Stamping, and Friends!

“The three components of happiness are something to do, someone to love, and something to look forward to.” From: Too soon Old, Too Late Smart, Gordon Livingston.

Giving these ladies something to look forward to and something to do makes me happy because I love them all! Many of us have been stamping together for close to 19 years! Time flies by so fast! Some, I have watched their children grow up into adults and now I am watching their grandchildren grow! I also know that they are a very talented bunch as many of them have other creative pursuits as well! Beading, jewelry, and quilting just to name a few! Sadly, there are a few who are no longer with us. Some who just no longer stamp (which I cannot for the life of me comprehend!), and some are making heaven a brighter place with their gift of creativity. Whatever the reason; it is at these special events that I miss them the most. It is the only touch of sadness in the day; but I thank God for the time I did get to spend with them. As always, there were a few who just could not make the event because the time did not work out for them. I missed them and pray that life is kind to us and that we will be able to have fun together at a future event! Here are few more pictures that I snapped while I watched them enjoy their stamping time together:

I have something new to do – I have a class to plan, I pray for new people to love, and I am looking forward to it; as I hope you all are! Thanks for stopping by and being a part of my Inkheaven!
