Flourishes Timeless Tuesday... Inspired by the letter "P"...



Hey all, it's me the RubberMaid. I am so honored, or should I say "pleased" beyond belief to be your hostess for today's fantabuous Timeless Tuesday challenge! Thank you Betty and the rest of the FOF for the invitation! Today's challenge is to use the letter " P" for your inspiration. Crazy??Well not really, just think a bit and you realize there are endless Possibilites. I'm thinking...Poppy, pink, pearls, punches, purple,piercing, and well now do you get the picture?? Sure you do, so get movin' and make those perfectly, pretty, positively aPPealing cards. Use your Perfect & Popular Flourishes stamp or stamps to create a Pleasing Presentation. OMGoodness I'm going to puke with all these P's present so let's get on with my card!!



I used the wonderful Flourishes Poppy to create (and of course it starts with the letter P ). I masked (who is that masked man you ask??? why it's the Lone Ranger..hi ho Silver away!) oh boy did I ever digress..sorry but as you know I sometimes do that, anyway I was able to fill my oval full of the lovely poppies colored a beautiful "pink" with my watercolored pencils. Found this beautious background paper by g.c.d studios and after mounting my two Nesties ( I personally didn't mount them but did glue them together) I put them on my Pinkini paper. Honest that's the name of this pink Bazzil paper. Of course it needed some Pearls & a Pink satin ribbon from Mike's to help finish it off ( bet you'd like to finish me off right about now) and last but not least my phrase which is also from Flourishes,the Gerbera daisy set.

Great news peeps! I was able to pull an all nighter last night...no not working on this card, an all nighter for us oldies is when you can go the whole night without getting up in the middle of the night to make a potty stop. I know TMI, but for me it's very exciting and it is inspired by the letter P. And now I'm off to get my pot..( oh I know what you're thinking...not that kind of pot )my tea pot for a cup of green tea. It is so soothing after a long day of stamping. Happy week dear stampers and until we meet again, keep those fingers inky!
