Happy day...

Hi everyone! I hope you are all having a great Sunday! I have a card today that I made this weekend and wanted to share!

Yes it is hanging on a potato masher!  It a recipe holder actually but I thought I would change it up a bit here!  I have used this before on my blog but not for quite awhile! 

So, let me tell you about my card!  This flower is made from white core paper and the Beautiful Blooms dies!  I cut one of each size and sanded the edges! I stuck them together with glue dots and added a clear sticker with Lemon Tart cardstock for the center!  Those adorable leaves are a die I found for the Quickutz Squeeze!  I am going through and purging stuff as I move into my new craft room, so you can imagine how excited I was to find this!  (Yes...I do have lots of stuff I haven never used...and obviously had no idea that I even had!)  I used a new PTI IP for the background and matted it in some Ripe Avocado to match the leaves!  The sentiment is from Market Street Stamps!

So this is it for today!  Hope all is well out in blog land!  I am SO behind on my blogs!  I am hoping to sit down tomorrow and see what everyone has been up to!  Have a great day!
