My Grandma's Bureau.....

My Grandma used to have a HUGE green bureau in her dining room upon which she always had fresh flowers. My mom used to talk about it in the most unflattering way.......when Grandma wanted to move her furniture around, mom was the one that had to help, so I can understand. She said it was a MONSTER!!

I loved it and so did Grandma. Mom said green was Grandma's favorite color....that must be where I get it from. Back in those days furniture was furniture!! Sturdy and true......

What does my Grandma's drawers (LOL!!!) have to do with anything you ask!!?!

The inspiration challenge today on SCS was a picture of a gorgeous green bureau with a vase of beautiful orange tulips on top. Take a look here. It was a picture from the Pottery Barn, and you are supposed to draw some inspiration from whatever "they" post. This was really took me back!

Well, I didn't make a green bureau card, but I did have green in my card.

My image stamp is from Pink Cat Studio, where I bought a grab bag of stamps. It was great, you can let them know what kind of stamps you would like in your grab bag and they do the best they can. There is a large grab bag and a small grab bag.

Guess which one I got??! {*wink!} - yes, I am weak!! LOL!

This is actually an Easter Stamp, but it fit for my purpose.

I colored it with copics and then layered it up on some paper that I had scalloped around with my corner trimmer.

I added the little ribbon flag and attached a bauble from Stamping Bella. I have so many of those dinky little thingys, I have to use them up!! I LOVE them!

The background is paper from Webster's Pages called Snickerdoodle from the Pink Lemonade collection. Isn't it pretty!! I got it from Jacksonbelle Embellishments.

The sentiment is Papertrey Ink's Beautiful Blooms and it fit perfectly with what I was trying to convey.

I was just on the Jacksonbelle Embellishments site AND they have the new TWO SCOOPS paper from Basic Grey in!!

I just ordered some!!
