Peachy Keen Stamps Challenge 43

Hi folks! It's been a great weekend at our house! We had friends over for a Mexican Night party that included homemade guacamole and tacos in handmade corn tortillas (awfully dry; we need more practice) and, of course, margaritas.

Our wonderful friends brought yummy spicy refried beans, delicious Spanish rice, a fantastic Spanish-style salad, always popular corn chips with Pico de Gallo and a few brews (not everyone cares for Margarator tequila lime juice).

Then Mimosas served with My Guy's hash brown, bacon and egg breakfast made The Day After positively enjoyable (for everybody but My Guy, come to think of it)!

So, it's been a great bit of fun to join in a Peachy Keen Stamps challenge sketch, therein shifting back to playing in the craft room after having spent a weekend in the kitchen and dining room.

Creating this piece I used Die Cuts With a View glitter stack card stocks along with a Fiskars punch for the flowers and sentiment plaque. The sentiment is a Making Memories magnetic stamp embossed with one of my very favorite powders: Pastel pink. For the flower stems I used vinyl coated wire that makes the flowers stand up by themselves!

Thanks to Peachy Keen for the needed creative reset ... you also should take a minute to see what the Peachy team has put together!

After that ... see you tomorrow for the Studio L3 Compendium challenge!
