Reveal for Mystery Swap

Hi my friends. Happy Saturday night. Hope you're having a great weekend. I had a busy day doing chores around the house. Big one - cleaning out the garage. I have a bunch of stuff that I want to hold a garage sale and see if I can sell it. Some things will get donated to our Area Ministry and some stuff just needs to go in the trash. Trying to get things cleaned up so I can set up my garage workshop where I'll have my machines - Cricut, Cuttlebug, Cameo, etc. I want to get them out of the storage room. 

I have a card to share.  I belong to a group on Splitcoast called the Mystery Swap. on SCS.   We are doing a bi-monthly swap where we all receive the same mystery image, sent to us by the hostess.  This month Darlene is the hostess and she said she was going old-school as she picked a favorite stamp from years ago.  We all send the cards to her and she will swap the cards and send everyone 3 different cards, plus the next image, which will be provided by Melina.  Then we get to do it all over again with a new image.  Here's mine.

Materials Used:
  • Image and Sentiment - Hero Arts - Bouquets of Wishes
  • Cardstock - Recollections; Stampin Up - Tempting Turquoise
  • Designer Paper - Stampin Up - East Coast Prep
  • Accessories - Prima flower; brad and lace from my stash; Deckle scissors
  • Ink - Momento Tuxedo Black
  • Layout - SC243
  • Copic Markers - B00, B04; G40, G43, G46; RV55; Y13, Y19
I am submitting this for the following challenges:

Whisper of Tulips - OSAAT #245

Good morning my friends. I'm a little late getting this posted. I guess I was so excited about having a 4-day weekend, it completely slipped my mind. It's been a good week with another monarch caterpillar showing up and now it's formed its cocoon, so I should have another one to release in just a few days which will probably be the last one until Spring.

Since it's Sunday, it's time for another challenge from One Stitch at a Time and this fortnight's challenge is Anything Goes With Gratitude. What are you thankful for?  For me, family, friends, and all the beautiful nature that our Heavenly Father has provided to us.  Here's my card.

Materials Used:
  • Image - Kaz Kraftz - Whisper of Tulips
  • Sentiment - Stampin Up - Mixed Medley
  • Cardstock - Stampin Up - Primrose Petals; Xpress It Blending Card
  • Ink - Stampin Up - Primrose Petals
  • Designer Paper - LOTV - Nitwit - One Birdie Lane collection
  • Accessories - Spellbinders - Opulent Ovals Die, Classic Oval Die; Round punches (my scallop punch was too large so I had to punch with a round and then trim away the excess to make the scallops on the sentiment); Lace from my stash; Butterflies - gifted to me from my blogging buddy ibalady (Brandi)
  • Layout was inspired by my friend Leslie Miller. I just know her through blogging, but I love to visit her blog - Running With Scissors. She always inspires me and I love the way she showcases her flowers.
  • Copic Markers - B00, B0000; G24, G28; RV02, RV13, RV14; Y11, YG41, YG45; 0
I hope you'll join us this fortnight for our challenge. Our wonderful sponsor is Stitchy Bear Digi Outlets and you could win our fabulous September Prize Pack or be picked as one of the Top 3.  Hope to see you there.
