Banana Split Sunday

Good Morning and Happy Banana Split Sunday day :)

I'm so thankful for these challenges. It was a busy week for us so this was the only card I got to make this week. May has always been busy with end of the school year stuff, birthdays, graduations, weddings. I jokingly told my kids that there are no more birthdays allowed in May :)

This week's challenge is called "May Flowers" - bet you know what the challenge is, don't you? I love flowers, my backyard is full of them and I continue to plant :)
For this card I used the really cool Fantasy Fiber to make my flowers. I just love this stuff! I also used the cutie patootie Bee from the "Party Bees" set.

Look how much the Fantasy Fiber shimmers, even after being ironed :)
After I ironed the fibers to make the 'fabric', I punched the flowers with just a regular punch. Then I handcut the centers because I didn't have the right size circle punch for that.

Stamps: Party Bees - 2RedBananas
Ink: Memento Tuxedo black, SU Bliss Blue (sponging), Copics
Paper: Bazzill
Other: Fantasy Fiber, Nesties - Labels One, May Arts blue ribbon, Shimmerz-Angel Wings (on the Bee wings), gems, pop-dots,, cuttlebug embossing folder

Here is a website I had the privilege to 'blog hop' to yesterday. I will definitely be participating in the 25 + 2 challenge. Read about it and I hope you participate as well! Cards for Heroes

My heartfelt thanks go out to all the military men, women and families, who give of themselves so we can be safe and free!

Our quote for the day: "At times our own light goes out and is rekindled by a spark from another person.
 Each of us has cause to think with deep gratitude of those who have lighted the flame within us." - Albert Schwietzer

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a wonderful day!
