Lantern Flowers revisited

Last week I got a few new Memory Box dies that I was 'dying' to use! Corney...I know...but I couldn't help it!

Mom needed a card, I needed to use my new die so I pulled out Stamping Bella's Lantern Flowers for another go 'round. I didn't think I could top the first one, but I think I like this one even better with those pretty lacy flowers.

This is a large card, 5x7 to be exact. I started with bella's BESTEST paper and except for some highlights with a white pencil I used only the following copic markers:

Y11, E50, 51, 53, R30, 32, 35, 59
E07, G40, 43, 46, 94, 85, 99

My original intent was to glitter the flowers, but when I was gluing down the flower die I got some glue on the background of my image. When I wiped it off, it left a shiny mark which I tried to remove but took off some of the sponged ink I had applied around the edge. Well, I had to rethink the placement of the glitter and it did a great job of camouflaging my booboo!

In other news, I have a sore throat today, I'm hoping it is just dryness and Paula didn't send any of her germs through the phone lines when I was talking to her the other night. She doesn't like calling me at work anymore because after being relocated to the 'mall' I have a new phone number and a 7-digit extension. Paula doesn't like that! And if she does get up the energy to pound in those 7 digits I am rarely at my desk because lately I have spent more than half my day in meetings. What happened to those days when I sat at my desk for 8 hours with my face buried in a computer and not interacting with anybody outside of my pod! I kinda miss that sometimes.

One last random thought...I'm sitting at my kitchen table looking out at my deck with all the flower filled pots. Only one pot has a geranium in it and I'm thinking next year it is going to be a geranium filled deck and all my pots will overflow with them. I'll have to make a note of that because I'm sure next year I will have completely forgotten how much I love those geraniums.  

That's it...lantern flowers and random thoughts.
