My Favorite Flower




It's the first Monday of the month again and that means it's time for another
fabulous Just Inklined Blog Hop!!! 
This month's hostess is the talented Toni and she has chosen the theme...
Single Layer Cards.
I have to admit I was a little scared when I saw the theme. You all know I like my "stuff" and "fluff". I decided to print whatever image I used on white card stock and go from there. I chose Tulip Jug mostly because it is my favorite flower and I just loved the jug. I had my image all colored and I "test stamped" my sentiment several times before I tried to put it on my card. Worked like a charm EVERY time until I went to stamp it on my card. UGH!! So, this is where the green polka dotted paper comes in. I covered up my boo boo and used one on my test stamped sentiments and popped it up. Sure hope it still qualifies. Lesson learned...stamp the sentiment BEFORE you color the image. LOL 


You should have come here from Angela's(Aj) blog
If you get lost or would like to start at the beginning just go to Toni's blog and start there. 
I'm sure the other Just Inklined girls have some beautiful cards to share. 
The next stop on the hop is Ann Marie's blog
Hope you all enjoy the hop!!
