Gina K and JustRite stamps

I love to stamp, I love to buy stamps, I love to collect stamps!!!!  If that sounds like an addiction, then that is me!
I used this adorable set of postage related stamps by Tami Mayberry for Gina K stamps.  I used them along with the Card Positioning Systems sketch for this week. Tami is the sponsor this week and you really need to check in on Wednesday to see what she is giving away. 
The green background postage stamp was created with some of the stamps from this set. 
For my next card, I pulled out some brand-new-to-me stamps from JustRite stamps.  I created it around a challenge that they are having on their blog this week and that is to make a handmade flower.  Plus, the flower fits the Moxie Fab Tuesday Trigger for this week with the crepe flowers although the trigger is a whole lot more subtle in the colors.
I stamped the frame on white cardstock, added some color to portions of it with Copic markers and then sprayed it with Rolling in the Hay, Shimmerz Vibez. 
For my flower, I pulled out some orange tissue paper that came in a package that I purchased. I had actually already thrown this paper in my garbage can.  I guess this fits Earth Day and recycling too!!! I looked down and saw that even though I had torn this paper, I had enough of it to cut some circles.  I folded it and roughly cut four layers of circles.  Next I took some large scallop scissors and tried to cut around the edge.  After I had these layers glued to my card and after I glued the buttons in the middle, I scrunched and crunched the layers. 
And I have to share a couple photos...
Our youngest grandson just turned 3 years old.  His party is still to come but he wants a Dinosaur party so I had this huge Dinosaur balloon waiting for him when he came home on his actual birthday.  He was sooooo impressed!!!
This thing is almost as tall as he is!!!
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)
