Floral Thanks

Sometimes the smallest thing mak you feel like an adult again. I started the day by cleaning my bathroom as there was a bit of dust settling on the surfaces. Oh, don't look at me like that, I've been busy lazying it up on the sofa doing nothing! Anyhow, it didn't take me long, but it felt so good to have it done. We were out all day and when I came back home and went to wash my hands I had already forgotten I had done a deep clean and it just made me so happy stepping into the clean bathroom. I felt so good - as long as I didn't look into any other room in the house...

A quick post today to show a card I made a while ago but haven't had time to post.  The background is a stencil monoprint using the ARTplorations Ethnic Organic One stencil and Disterss inks. I love the look of this technique. I stamped some of the pretty flowers from STAMPlorations Big Dreamer, coloured them with Copics and fussy cut them. I die cut the sentiment from purple and turquoise card and before assembling, I added scraps of purple and turquoise card behind the panel. To add a finishing touch I added some purple stickles to the sentiment

I'm linking up my card over at Inspire.Create.Challenges where the theme is thankful, Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge where the theme is Create your own background and Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge whre the theme is Thanks/Thanksgiving.
