Fabulous Friend Flower Pot

So, I sat down last night determined to get some much needed stamp time in. I began by making my coffee, and straightening my craft area just enough to have room to work. Then my craft light fell off of it's stand, crashed into my coffee cup, which poured everywhere! It soaked through 2 brand new packs of cardstock that I just got in, and was getting ready to file, ruining almost every piece! I was livid, yelling at the coffee cup, trying to kill the lamp, and screaming for Jim to bring me some paper towels. You would have thought it was a 'real' emergency with how angry I was! So, that's how my night of stamping began. However, it ended on a much better note. I finally made the Flower Pot card, which is currently a featured tutorial on SCS. I may never make another one, but I love this one! It took me well over an hour, and after all my ruined paper, I was just not feeling it anymore. Maybe if I tried again, I could pull one together much quicker. Below is a shot of the insert pulled out.
Paper: Melon Mambo CS, Razzleberry Lemonade DSP, and Rich Razzleberry CS
Stamps: Flight of the Butterfly, Oval All, and The More the Merrier (new Level 3 Hostess)
Punches: 5-Petal Flower, Scalloped Oval, 1" Circle, Boho Blossom, Eyelet Border, Large Oval
Die Cuts: Big Shot by Sizzix for SU, Little Leaves SU die, Birds&Blooms SU die
Accessories: Sq Fire Rhinestone Brad, Melon Mambo Ribbon, Frosted Lace Stickles, Sponges

Sorry you had stamping trauma. I know how it is. I freak whenever anyone gets too close to my stuff with anything liquid.

Your card turned out awesomely. It is so pretty.
