Hello Hydrangeas! and We have winners!

I have somehow managed to lose a week of my life if you happen to see a last week with my name on it, please let me know! ;)

I am a few days late posting the winners of my Blogiversary give away, and since I had three lovely ladies comment on that post, I am sending out three care packages!  I already have Heather's address, but if Lynn and Margy can email me, I'll get those in the mail this week!  Thanks so much for you wonderful comments too, ladies!

I've been trying to spend some time reacquainting myself with some of my all time favorite stamps and giving them a little inky love once again.  If I had to make a list of my favorites, Because I Care would be in the top 5.  It is such a beautifully detailed stamp and since I love live hydrangea blooms, it only makes sense that this is a well loved stamp.  This was also a great time to pull out some older DSP and a huge bag of whisper white scraps!  I would love to say that my supply of both are much smaller now, but we all know that would be a lie... Scraps tend to multiply like rabbits when I'm not watching!

I inked the stamp with markers to have the two colors in one stamping, matted it a few times, and attached it to a lattice embossed base.  A quick stamping of the sentiment on a strip of whisper white and a simple punch, and my cards were complete.

As much as I hate to part with any of my stamps, I really need to do some purging, and there are quite a few that I haven't used in ages and likely won't miss if they aren't here taking up space.  Of course,  Because I Care is in no danger of being in that category any time soon! Wish me luck in my cleaning/downsizing!  Thanks so much for visiting and have a wonderful day!
