I have another fun card for you today brought to you by the latest Clear and Simple release! If you missed it yesterday, click HERE to see everything new! 41 new and fabulous items! Fabulous, I'm tellin' ya! 
Here is my card...


This card showcases a couple of my new favorite things!  First off, those leaves!  They are from this cutie patootie new die, Build-A-Flower...

The "grass" is from this die set...

It's called Banner 1.  The banner decoration turned upside down makes some pretty cute clouds too!  You can see the ones I made HERE!

And then there is my favorite background set from January's release!  Background Basics 1.  You get all these backgrounds in one set!  

That wood grain is FABULOUS!!  As far as the other little details in the card, that super cute little butterfly came from THIS set, Shower Sentiments.  I hand cut the tree stump, as well as the clouds.  A little copic coloring and a sentiment to finish!  


Ok and one more little off the subject business.  I was on Facebook this morning and saw that the super sweet Veronica, shared a pin.  This pin was not the pin I needed to see this morning.  You see, I have a small addiction to cake.  I love cake.  Especially white cake or anything with cinnamon in it.  So you know of course I had to whip it up because it's a Coffee Cake-in-a-mug.  Aggghhhh.  I know, right?  It's so easy and oh so good!  So if any of you out there didn't really want to see this pin this morning either.....your welcome!  :)  Thanks Veronica and thank you to Heather for posting this yummy creation!

That's it for today!  Have a great day!
