Sending Big Hugs

Hello -

After my tussle with the foiling, I had pancakes and turkey bacon for breakfast.  Then I came back to my crafty space and pulled out a new stamp. I'm not sure what draws me to this but I am so crushing on it.

It's Simon Says Stamps Flora Background.  ITs odd, the lines are thick, it reminds me of hot air balloons definitely not flowers...but every time I look at it I love it.

Today I used one of my favorite techniques  - Heat Embossing and coloring with watercolor brush pens. Its easy and the colors are so vibrant.

I am entering this to the following challenges:

Shopping our Stash - Embossing
Flickr Simon Says Stamp #133 Emboss like a Boss
Simon Says Stamp IG Challenge - Favorite Technique
Addicted to Stamps - Anything Goes

Thanks so very much for stopping by.

Cat, I don't know how this one snuck by me... well, I actually DO know - somehow, my provider decided to consider 77 of my emails as spam... I'm not very happy about it!
Thank goodness for this beauty to take my mind elsewhere - turn it around and they remind me of Japanese lanterns!!
