Good Morning! I hope spring is in the air for you. The sun is shining and it's warming up a bit here. It's beautiful outside!!! We even slept with the windows open last night, I love that :)
This card was made with some stamps that a friend of mine gave me (thanks Teresa :). When you go to ScrapMania at Archiver's, which is what they call their Friday and Saturday night crops, you get a packet of materials to make a layout and each month is a different packet. Well I think it was last month a small set of Hero Arts stamps was included in the packet and I didn't get a chance to go to a crop, but my friend Teresa did and she doesn't really "do" flowers so she gave me her set of stamps and all she asked was that I make a card for her. That was an awesome deal in my book, because I LOVE stamps and flowers! This is the card I made for her. The flowers around the border of the card are actually a flower border stamp so that made that part really easy. The turquoise piece I embossed with my cuttlebug embossing folder and mounted on yellow plaid paper. The little envelope is a punch that I just recently purchased so I was excited to use it. It's from McGill. Then I just handcut a little tag from the same yellow that is matting the turquoise and stamped "Sending Happy Thoughts" and a little flower from the same stamp set onto the tag. I added some fiber that I had in my stash and a prima flower with a hero arts gem in the center. I thought it turned out cute and Teresa liked it. I just love to share :)
