Thumped Flower!

After watching the video at StampTV on 'thumping' that Gina K did, I had to try it! What a fun technique! I have always felt intimidated by solid stamps like this because I just felt like it needed something more, unless you were just doing like a shadow. So with this, I really like the results. Here is my card:



And I also made this card for the CAS challenge this past week at SCS. I am liking those challenges alot! So nice to get a card done in only about an hour, lol! You know, I love all styles of cards, from the detailed ones to the ones like this! And these are like a 'break' for me, lol! I have a more detailed one in the works that I am almost finished with and will be posting here in a bit too though...

Hope you are having a wonderful Sunday! Beautiful day here in Texas, just a bit chilly though...hopefully soon will be seeing some spring buds! Thanks for stopping by today!

p.s. I have to tell you how thrilled I am...I had been getting a bit down about my cardmaking...oh I know silly of me, but I do want to be on a DT, permanently, its one of my 'goals' lol! It just kinda makes me feel I am doing this for a PURpose, if that makes sense, lol! I know the people I give my cards to are just thrilled, but..anyways...I got into the favorite threads at SCS this week four times, woohoo!! My very first time too! 2 of the times was for this card, the other two were my little bag I made and the pop up card. Talk about a ego boost, lol! It definitely was was a needed right now!! Thanks sooo much!! Ok, enough of all that...lol.
