Stamp therapy has occurred!!

Hi Stampers!!!
Well it has been a crazy time for me lately!!  I told you already that I have been secretly stampin in preparation for the Royal Blog Tour that begins the end of next week.  I am hoping you will enjoy those projects.  Of course it is also progress report time - as much as I hate having to write all those reports (mostly because I will not let myself do a lousy job of it so it takes a lot of time!!) the good news is that now we are in the final quarter of the school year.  Give a shout out for best season for stampin!!!  I have been struggling with one of my son's teachers lately too.  Most teachers love to see kids learn..but there are some that are there on a head trip.  John is enduring one of those teachers - and unfortunately it is in his weakest subject.  I am hoping things look up soon.
I have an exciting opportunity next month to do a craft night for a group of ladies at a local restaurant.  That will be great fun...if you are in the Belair area and would like the details just drop me a comment and I will get back to you with the details.  The Band Boosters have been very busy trying to do some fund raisers.  I am currently investigating a few other fundraisers too.  It takes a fair amount of money to keep these groups competitive with the other, better funded schools. 

But enough of all that .... tonight I have a new project for you!!  I saw a really pretty card on Mary Fish's blog and decided to use the idea of the densely stamped background using an open image.  I decided to tone down the background a bit by using Sahara Sand ink instead of black.  I sponged the Rose Red ink onto the three flowers in the center - they had been stamped in black stazon ink on white glossy paper.  Trimmed them very closely and popped them up on the front  - with a spash of glitter  in the centers.  I love it !- Peggy
