MM465 and SIP65 Get Well

Hi everyone!  I had created this card earlier in the week for the Mojo Monday sketch:

and was thrilled when I saw the Stamp Ink Paper challenge was monochromatic!  Check!


I love monochromatic!  I used some pretty papers from Graphic 45's Botanical Tea line in a pretty Wisteria Wonder shade:

It's a bit hard to see, but the back panel was stamped with a floral image from Tim Holtz's Flower Garden set., then sponged and decorated with some SU enamel dots.  The sentiment is from Delightful Dozen (ret SU), and I stamped the scallop behind it with a Leafy backgrounder stamp (ret Cornish Heritage Farms):

I added a piece of doily (SU) and some twine from my stash, then stamped a sentiment from Papertrey on the inside and lightly stamped the same floral image on top:

And speaking of florals, since I don't have any new pix of Cassidy, now that she's in school all day, I thought I would share some things that are in my flower garden:

A monarch on a spider zinnia:

A closeup of  another zinnia:

Butterfly bush:

And yes, a mama and three teen-age turkeys, behind the garden:

We knew the turkeys were around, as my SIL and a neighbor had told us they had seen a mother turkey with babies, but this was the first time they had ventured all the way down to our yard.  They were actually IN our yard but as soon as I went out with my camera, they scuttled away!

Enjoy your day!
