Hoot Hoot Hooray, Friendship, Thank You Card, 2020 Stampin' Up! Spring Catalog

Today I'm making a clean and simple card.  Plus a super quick and easy one too!

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Whisper White card stock.  

On top of that is a 5-1/8" x 3-7/8" piece of Balmy Blue card stock.

The top Whisper White piece was cut 5" x 3-3/4".

I stamped the flower from the "Hoot Hoot Hooray" set using black Memento ink.

I colored the image using my light Daffodil Delight Blends pen for the center of the flower.  The light and dark Balmy Blue Blends pen for the petals and light and dark Granny Apple Green Blends pen for the leaves.  And that was it for the coloring.  You can use markers with a Blender Pen or any other coloring medium you wish.  This image is very easy to color.  

You can also mask the words and stamp just the flower and add different words that fit more with a card you are needing.  This would make a great get well card, thinking of you card, friendship card, Mother's Day card and even a sympathy card.  I just think it has such a sweet look to it.  You can find small words in the "Itty Bitty Greetings" set.  I may set this up in my Stamparatus and make a few cards with just the daisy and save them for another time, adding the wording I need as the occasion arises.  

This was a fun card to make. I like the simplicity of it.  And it's a fast card to make when you need a quick card!  I was planting my spring flowers today (yup, here in Minnesota it finally warmed up enough to plant stuff) and I was still in the "flower" mood.  I still have a few more to plant tomorrow morning and some tomato plants to plant. I actually grew them from seeds!  I have a grow light that looks like a long desk lamp and I just put my plants under it and watch them grow. Right now I have some Romaine lettuce under it. I bought the lettuce two weeks ago and I cut off the bottom core part about 2" and I used a vegetable peeler on the bottom to expose some fresh core and put it in water to grow.  I do have lettuce leaves coming from the center but no roots yet.  I did the same with celery. I now have two celery plants outside in my big garden pot.  I had to put it in a big pot because we have rabbits around here and I know my leaf lettuce and celery would be eaten by them.  I'll let you know how it's doing.  If I remember I will take a picture tomorrow and add it to my blog to show you how cool it looks.

So there you have it, a card and some gardening tips!!

Thank you SO much for taking the time to stop by today,

love the way you use stamps that are often overlooked.
