This week's Stamp of the Week is this versatile fern stamp. This simple little stamp can create big focal images and create exceptional design on your cards.
Here's a card I created using this adorable fern #1708-G. Just scroll down the page a bit and you'll see it there.
The base of my card is Pure Luxury CS from Gina K - All Spruced up. I continued with the challenge from Karen's Designer's Choice Challenge (Using a Score Pal/Buddy) and used my Score Buddy to create the scoring image on white 80# layering weight, PL from GKD. The Fern is stamped in three different green inks, Memento "New Sprout", "Bamboo Leaves" and "Cottage Ivy". The sentiment is Repeat Impressions #8607. (There's time to play along in Karen's challenge and win some RI stamps too. Click on the link for the details).
Thank you for stopping by and I appreciate (so much) your comments.

A Personal Note:
Before I sign off today, I'd like to dedicate this space to Bess, our beloved German Shepherd who died on Saturday. She was such a joy to our home and our lives and we will miss her forever. She was my constant sidekick. In this photo (taken last month), she was waiting for me to come back from my walk to the mailbox. She always walked with me but knew she couldn't go beyond a certain point (too close to the road), so she would walk me just to this point, then sit and wait for me. If any of you have lost a loved pet, you know this grief.
RIP my sweet Bess I will miss you forever.
