My Fantastic Followers:)

If you know me by now, you have to know my most (apart from purple and maybe a little red) favorite color is BLUE. From the deep blue sea, to the beautiful blue skies and to my husband enchanting blue eyes, it's no wonder.  It's such a powerful uplifting color and it always makes me feel good. And when I was making this sweet pea card of blue, I felt it didn't need a sentiment..the beautiful image really said it all.......
And also if you look closely you will see that the image is cracked and I must say I enjoyed doing that part (the cracking) as well. Here's closer look..

I wanted to try something a little different with the sweet pea stamps this time. I think it turned out ok. But I will let you decide :)
