Just a Note from Prickley Pear

Here I am trying hard to start out this new year with more regular blog posts after finishing up 2014 with some rather quiet days! Today is Prickley Pear inspiration day, so I’m sharing a simple Just a Note card I created as last week was winding down.

Stamps:  Spring Flourished Oval Clear Set (Prickley Pear)
Accessories:  Flourished Oval Die (Prickley Pear), heart pearl, Spica markers, Copic markers, foam dots

I die cut a frame using a Flourished Oval Die from Prickley Pear.  Then, the image was stamped and colored with Copic markers, including Spica pens to add some sparkle.  I hand drew the music note and embellished with a heart pearl.  The entire framed image was popped up using foam dots.  The simple sentiment was stamped last.  The stamps in this particular set are so pretty!  Valentine’s Day up next and this image would be perfect!

Being the first Monday of the new year and with everyone getting back to the usual daily routines, I’m ready to dig in and do some brainstorming for goals to set.  I’m not much one for setting big, flashy ones.  Just heartfelt, personal goals that I feel will make a difference not only in my own little life, but in the lives of those I am a part of.  Life is, after all, not only about me.

Have a marvelous Monday!

Melissa
