Sisterhood of the Blogging Stampers - 12

After seeing several blogs with SBS logos, I decided to check it out myself. What a great way to connect with other stamping bloggers, or blogging stampers, or blampers? Stoggers? Anyway, I signed up for Group 12. See my sidebar to links to my "sisters." I've already received some sweet comments. Thanks!

Here's a little something I put together the other night, following CPS #50 again. If only my camera would cooperate and focus more! I think I might hold off on Nestabilities and invest in a better camera. Can't decide - maybe I should wait for my birthday? Or maybe I'll get a good guilt gift because DH will be out of town on Valentine's Day (AGAIN!)...
I love the harlequin background paper with these sweet daisies. I used my oval nestabilities to create the mats, and stamped the image (Studio G), then colored with my gel pens. The sentiments is also Studio G and I colored the flower with the same pens. I doodled around the white frame, but you can't really see the yellow dots that are between the blue squiggles. My camera doesn't seem to want to focus in on the doodle. Maybe it was the lighting. I'll try again if we ever get a sunny day! The ribbon is from Target - synthetic raffia. The picture hanger is from We R Memory Keepers, attached with a Queen & Co brad. See, I'm using my stuff!

Well, I had to pick up DS from school with 102 temp this afternoon, so I'm going to check on him and change the tv channel if he needs it. I suspect a sinus infection. Poor little man.

Thanks for looking!

ETA: Got my camera to focus on the doodles. Here they are, and you can see the yellow dots...

So sorry your son is sick; sinus infections, yuk! Wow, I really like this card. The harlequin design with the daisies is wonderful. I can see the doodling in the oval frame; nice touch for a very pretty card.

Sorry your son is sick. That's no fun for anyone!

I am working on getting us a SBS bulletin board so we can communicate in one place when we need to. Leaving comments in each other's blogs is great, but for group "business", it will be nice to have a place to call our own. I will keep you updated!
