Back to Normal?

What is normal, anyway?  Are you back to normal at your household?  We are not at mine, but I am carving out some stamping time before I go do all the things I need to do today!  I was perusing Jami's blog, Stamp Happy with Sgt Stamper and saw a challenge on the 2RedBananas blog, so I thought I'd go for it.  I needed a special birthday card (although I should be stamping thank you and get well cards!) and my favorite "go-to" stamp set is Best Wishes & More, as if you didn't know that already! 

Nancy's birthday card

It's a pretty simple card--I haven't stamped in a while, so I had to ease back in gradually!  LOL!  This roughly uses Layout #1 from Clean & Simple Stamping.  The center panel uses Bella Rose DP; the centers of the flowers are covered with Dazzling Diamonds glitter.  The background DP is Urban Prairie from Basic Grey!  Thanks for visiting---I may be back again with some other cards today, we'll see how it goes!

  • Stamps:  Best Wishes & More
  • Paper:  WW, BG Urban Prairie, Basic Black, Bella Rose
  • Ink:  Pink Passion, Pixie Pink, Cameo Coral, Regal Rose, Stazon Black
  • Acc:  Glitter, Glue

Love this LeAnne! It's funny how you can completely appreciate a card after the holidays that does not have holly green and red on it! I love the spring feel! Right about now, I am loving the thought of spring! :-)

Beautiful card LeAnne! I love the colors. I always need a simple card to get back into the groove of stamping. And, once I get my office cleaned up and the wrapping paper out of my way, I'm going to jump in and get stamping! Enjoy your day!

I heard one time that "normal" is just a setting on the washing machine!! This is a great card!! :-)

So lovely. Best Wishes and More is a great set. It is so versatile.
I wish this is how my first attempt at stamping after the holiday break looked. Mine looks pretty elementary
