Doodle Flowers

Hello! Everybody staying warm and dry? I have been without Internet all week, so this is my first card posted since our Ice Storm last week here in North Carolina.

Gina K Designs Stamp TV has a challenge to create a card that includes some kind of doodling on it. I'm not a "doodler" so it didn't come easy. The card, however, was fun to create. I used a Small Madison Window die from Poppy Stamps Inc and a Sizzix Delicate Designs Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and  Large Scallop Edgelit to create a Valence. For paper across the bottom, I selected a red and white gingham pattern from Gina K Designs. The images are created with Gina K Designs Vogue Vases stamps by Theresa Momber and colored with Copic markers. I doodled a little on the vases using a White Signo Pen.

I am also entering this card into Mod Squad Challenge, where the instructions were to include flowers. That's easy, since I love flowers and include them on most of my cards!

This card was started just before our power went out, so I took the next several days to add a little here and there until I was happy with it when the lights came back on. That's called a Work In Progress, I think!

Thanks for stopping by. I appreciate your visits and your comments very much, as they keep me moving forward on this creative journey. Hope you're having a good weekend!


  1. What an adorable scene. The curtain valance looks so real, and is stunning. The red gingham reminds me of an Italian restaurant tablecloth, LOL Which reminds me of good food, and now I am hungry. Hmmm. Nice job.

  2. What a sweet card Sharon. I love all the fun features, the window, the curtain and the darling vases and flowers. Beautifully designed card and color palette. Love it!

  3. Hope you survived the ice storm. Geez, this weather!!!!! Love your sweet little card, that curtain is so cute!! Great take on the challenge, well done!!
