Missing you & Miracles Blossom. "Gina K. Blog Hop"

Hello my friends, are you havong a great day? I hope so. I am having a miserable one, yes, allergies are ruining my day, I just came back inside from some garden work and now my eyes are getting itchy again, yikes! I hope all these nasty sympthoms go away because it is not fun.
Anyway, I have a couple of cards that I am submitting for Gina K. Blog Hop "Summer Memories" 

Miracles Blossom: As I told you yesterday I have a lot of memories spending time at my grandma's house during the Summer Time. I remember she had the most beautiful flowers ever, I enjoyed playing in her garden (and sometimes cutting her flowers, oops) with my cousins (all girls).  Oh, those times! It's so good to remember that.
So, here is my card, I took Theresa's new set "Hope Grows" and stamped the leaves in a piece of Wild Dandelion CS and create a BG, then I took a scrap piece of Red Hot and punch the border and add some Gold Rhinestones, then some ribbon and adhered to my card. I stamped the flowers in White Layering Weight CS in Memento Tuxedo Black. Colored them with Prismacolor Pencils and OMS. Finally I stamped the sentiment in Memento Tuxedo Black.
Final size card: 8.5" x 3.5"
I am submitting this card also to Mark's Finest Papers" Create your own BG Challenge

Card recipe:
Card stock: Wild Dandelion, Red Hot, White Layering Weight (all Gina K. Designs)
Stamps: Hope Grows (Gina K. Designs)
Ink: Crushed Curry (SU), Memento Tuxedo Black (Tsukineko)
Embellishments: Antique White Satin Ribbon (Offray), Gold Rhinestones (Recollections)
Accessories: Stamp-a-ma-jig, Foam tape, Corner punch (for scallop border), Prismacolor pencils, OMS, Scor-Tape.

Missing you: I remember after playing with my cousins all day, but night we were tired and we all sat down to watch TV. I remember going to the Family Room and sitting on my grandma's favorite chair, it was my favorite too!! I suppose now they are call antiques, LOL. It was so comfy and soft. Do you want to know what show we watched? "V", the original version, it's funny to remember because I am so afraid of mice and I don't know how I trained my brain to watch that, LOL. I think that was the only time we all were quiet and still :)
So, for this card I used Nina's new sets "Fine Furnishings" and "Fine Furnishings Additions".
Final size card: 4.25"x 5.5"
I used the sketch from 2S4U and the color inspiration from Off the Wall Craftiness
