Prairie Flower - CYS

Hi my friends. Well, Harvey has finally moved on away from H Town. Sadly, it has moved over to Port Arthur which is substantially underwater and Beaumont which is getting hammered. They had to evacuate 250 residents of a nursing home this morning and finally tonight got the last 12 patients onto a huge helicopter and they brought them back over this way to Conroe. H Town is not out of the woods yet, there is still a lot of high water in places including in our downtown area. And the cleanup starts.

With all the time off from work (back to work tomorrow), I had time to play with my stamping toys.  This card was for the August Challenge Your Stash challenge on Splitcoaststampers. Our hostess was Darlene and she wanted us to create our own background and not use any designer paper. Yikes!

Bringing some light and sunshine I made this pretty card with a lovely bunch of Prairie Flowers.
Materials Used:
  • Image - Power Poppy - Prairie Flowers
  • Sentiment - Power Poppy - Prairie Flowers
  • Cardstock - Stampin Up - Pink Pirouette; Papertrey Ink -
  • Ink - Memento - Tuxedo Black
  • Accessories - Nestabilities; SU scalloped punch; Cuttlebug flourish embossing folder.
  • Copic Markers - (coming)
That's it for this time. Hope you all are safe and dry.


  1. Wow! Beautiful! Love all the color in this bouquet. Also, the embossed borders in the background make a nice frame. The reality of the disaster down there makes it odd to think of people returning to work and things gradually returning to normal. My heart goes out to the folks who have suffered so much loss. I'm glad you're safe!

  2. Oh Maggie - the flooding there is beyond comprehension - and there is now more rain predicted, I heard today :-(. Your card is so pretty - love your embossed background

  3. So glad you are safe, Maggie! Praying for the others in Harvey's path!
    Your card is lovely!

  4. This is beautiful! Love the colorful flowers!

  5. A beautiful card. I love the embossing and the wonderfully colored flowers.
