Bubbles & Daisies

I love that the daylight lasts longer.    The ground has dried enough from the rain that Ralph was able to finally get some blackberry plant starts that my Mom brought from her garden into our garden.  Filled the holes full of steer poop and watered them.  I think they will take off quite nicely.  Especially since our weather is supposed to be so nice.

Temple square looks amazing this time of year.  I take my lunch breaks to wander the church campus.  Not only do I get to see God's amazing creations, it adds steps to my fitbit

Here is a quick card I did this evening before I  focused in on the chores and responsibilities that had to get done tonight.

This card was cased from Lisa A  - Iminhaven. 
I saw this card on pinterest and since I am a sucker for daisies and dots I had to check it out.

The border is made using a memory box border die - Bubbles and daisies.  The Thanks is from a cuttlebug cutting plate I purchased eons ago.   I applied crystal effects to the thanks to give it some pop. 

To see how the pieces were place on the border - check out Lisa A.'s blog at the link above.

This was so much fun and I can't wait to make all kinds of color combinations.  It is a little simple, but am not sure it needs layers and extra embellishments. 

Well, best be getting off to bed, stayed up way too late last night for my chance to put in my Stampin Up order from the new catalog!  It shipped today - Hooray!  Hopefully I will have some time this weekend to play with new toys.

Ta Ta for now

We Create Blog Hop - Last Chance

There comes a time every year that Stampin' Up sends out a new catalog with lots of fun new stamps and accessories.  In order for them to be able to do this, they have to "retire" some of the product in the current catalog. I have lots of favorites that I can still use and love, but I will no longer be able to demonstrate and promote them.  Now is your chance to get them before they end up on e-bay for an exorbitant price.

This is a sympathy card for a family in our church congregation that had a young daughter pass away from complications fighting cancer.

This is card is based on a similar layout seen on Pinterest.  Fabulous Florets stamp set is such an elegant floral stamp set.  It can be made into a whimsy look or classic look as seen here.  I am also so sad that the 3/8 taffeta ribbon is being retired.  It is so pretty and easy to work with. 

Another stamp set that is retiring is Fabulous You.  Who doesn't love a fabulous shoe like this one. 

Last but not least...Field Flowers Stamp set.   I know that I cased this from someone, but I have no idea who that would be.  Once again a great floral set that is so versatile.

Thanks for hopping along on our hop.  Our next stop is royalty herself Jeanna Bohanon - go check her amazing creations out.
