Timeless Tuesday ...Scallop

Well today at Flourishes it's time for the Tuesday challenge and Cindy is challenging us to use a scallop. Love scalloped potatoes will that do? Think not so I'll try and be good. This image is from the calendar set which surely provides some lovely images and I chose the primrose. Did you think that the primrose was only in yellow with a wine color center??? Wrong, it actually comes in many different colors so after my research I knew I could use this lovely ribbon which looks like the flowers are primroses. Just stamped and colored ( with ...yep you guessed it , my faithful colored pencils) I don't have a copic marker in the house and I'm Ok with that. Used the stamp with the water mark ink for my beige panel. Did my scallop with my Fiskers punch and used my Nestie Ok I will tell you the number today, it's label 4 and my little phrase is from the tag along set. So there you have it.
Weather has been pleasant with sunshine and close to the 40 degree mark. Can't complain when the sun is out. It's that scary time of year when we have to think of summer coming and our fat little butt cheeks need slimming. Yikes! But I did something for me a few weeks ago...I joined the gym and am working out 3 times a week for an hour each time. Don't treat the guys to my leotards yet, as well if truth be known ...Can't get them on. Hey, maybe Mr. Right is at the gym. Happy week fellow stampers.
