Spring Sunset

     I am blogging from my deck tonight. I thought the following card was appropriate because it was inspired by a sunset I watched twinkle and glimmer through the new spring leaves while sitting on my deck a few weeks back. Now I find I am inundated with swarms of mosquitoes. I’ll have to find a remedy for that because deck blogging is so much better than in the creepy crawly basement blogging!


Stamps: Waltzingmouse Stamps Tiny Trees, Victorian Alphabet (period), Asian Gardens, Asian Gardens Additions, Free Spirit-Boy
Ink: SU! Early Espresso, Pretty in Pink, Rose Red, Pink Pirouette; Memento; Versamark
Paper: Neenah Classic Crest Solar White
Ribbon: Unknown
Silver embossing powder

Unfortunately, the mosquitoes have won and I am forced to head back indoors. Thanks for poppin’ by for a look!


  1. Wauw, Kate! This is truly gorgeous!! Love all the stamps and colors and the shiny details!! Very nice card!
    Hugs, Wendy

  2. Very pretty card! I love the lanterns against the flowery background! I love sitting on my back deck and burn a "bug lantern" or a mosquito coil to keep those critters away. Sometimes they win out anyway, lol!

  3. Lovely card Kate, I'm a sucker for anything oriental!Take a Brewer's Yeast tablet each day, mozzies hate the smell that emanates from the body:)

  4. What a beautiful scene that you created, Kate! A perfect marriage between Asian Gardens and Teeny Trees. Love it!!
    With all the rain that we've been having here in the Midwest, the mosquitoes are just terrible aren't they? I long for a screened porch. Maybe someday, sigh.

  5. What an amazing stamper you are Kate, love this Asian garden scene!

  6. Hi Kate!
    First of all I have to apologise for being away so long. Our eldest son had surgery and the last few weeks were busy. Before that I had a back that has been hurting like crazy so I missed your previous posts......
    I am so happy to be back again and you never cease to amaze me. My oh my..an Oriental piece of heaven and it's made by you.
    Breathtaking Kate; this is pure beauty to look at!

  7. Just wonderful design - the tree and hanging lights are fantastic!!

  8. What you did to create the tree branches and flowers is amazing!!!! So Beautiful!!

  9. You are the sporadic stamper and I am the sporadic commenter. :) I always ohh and ahh in my feed reader but never leave comments and I really should more often! LOVE LOVE LOVE this one! Loved it when I saw it, love it now. Love the fun use of the little star image and the leaves to create a fun scene!
