HHS Clematis

Before I talk about today's card I have a little news for you about a new blog challenge that I'm going to be a part of. :)  It's called 'Tis the Season and it's a bi-weekly Christmas card challenge that will be starting up on October 3.  I love the idea of it since I make about 90-100 Christmas cards to give out each year.  In August I figure out what I want to make, purchase my supplies, then work on them at craft nights once a month at our church.  I don't mind doing this, but they are always the same card, and no matter how much time I think I'm giving myself I always end up cramming to get them done before I need to send them out.  I figure if I design one card every other week, then make three more of that same card by this time next year I'll have enough cards for Christmas and no more cramming!  Not sure if I'll keep up with the extra three or not, but I'm going to give it a try! :)  If you'd like see what 'Tis the Season is about click HERE.  Then start joining us in a week to see what we've created and show us your creations too!

Now on to today's special card that  I made for my wonderful upline's birthday.  I'm so glad she convinced me to join Stampin' Up!  It's been nothing but a blessing for me! :)  Earlier this week I was thinking about what I wanted put on her card while I was walking around my yard checking my flowers out.  That's when I happened to see one lone clematis in the whole bushy mess still blooming.  It's been a few years since I've made one of those flowers for a card so I decided it was time to make one again.  I used this week's Hand Stamped Sentiment's sketch challenge for my card's layout.  The embossing from the embossing folder I used didn't show up very well, but if you look really closely you can see that I embossed under the purple strip.  :).




Thanks for looking and have a great day!
