Silly me . . .

Hello my friends!

I was in such a hurry to get a post ready to share my daughter's birthday yesterday (trying to be sneaky and have it come live JUST as she was driving in ... she sees my blog posts on her phone) that I TOTALLY FORGOT to share with you the card I made for her.  So ... I'm back again today to do that!!

I actually pulled this card together while she was on her way.  
She lives an hours drive away so I knew I had time. 
The background paper is REALLY OLD DCWV that I think I've had since I first started scrapbooking/card making.  But I knew it was colors she would like.  Pretty quick/simple ... easy/peasy design.

Here's what was used to make this card:
Paper:  DCWV 12x12 pack, white cs
Stamps/Ink:  Inkadinkado/ SU Blue Bayou & Versafine Onyx
Accessories:  Spellbinder 'Floral Ovals', Heartfelt Creations 'Sun Kissed Fleur' HCD734 die, Cheery Lynn Designs 'Fanciful Flourish Sm'  B117S, Cheery Lynn Designs 'Tropical Flourish' B127, PunchBunch Flower Making Kit

I actually made this into a gift card holder and slid a little fun $$$ into the pocket for her.

A few challenges:
Bearly-Mine Challenge - Anything Goes
Everybody-Art Challenge - Happy Birthday
Papertake Weekly - Anything Goes
Oozak -Anything Goes Die Cuts/Punches

Poor hubby is still suffering from a summer cold (really has him down).  I think a little TLC is in order!  Have a wonderful day everyone!

As Always . . .
