Thinking of You...

Hi all!  Well it's finally Friday! Hope you all had a fantastic week and are ready to enjoy the weekend.  It's supposed to be cold and rainy here this weekend... I tell ya, we have been having some of the strangest weather,  a few days of upper 80's and 90's and now now thru the weekend, we are back to low 50's and rain..  Anyway, I thought I would focus on a little spring cheer to tie us over till we are back to warm and sunny again... and squeeze in a few more challenges too! 8-)




This Sunny little card was actually inspired by the extremely talented Miss Dina Kowal, one of IO's very own Fabulous design team members. You must go and check out all of her wonderful creations, you will definitely be inspired, I sure was, so much so that I had to create my take on one...  I began by stamping my Large Lovely Daisy Stem from Impression Obsession onto Flourishes Classic White with Memento Tuxedo Black and colored it up with my trusty Copics.  I matted it up with a fun eyelet circle I created with my Eyelet Circles Nesties set and some fabulous digi DP from Anita Richards featured at Two Peas in a Bucket.  My Impression Obsession sentiment was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black onto a cute little label I cut with my Cricut using the Mother's Day Cartridge. And that's pretty much it, I used my MS Daisy border punch to add a darling border, a bit of sheer ribbon from Michaels and a sweet little pearl to finish it all up.

Hope you all have a fabulous weekend!  Thanks so much for dropping by. 8-)
