Note: 2nd post today: Scroll down for my Diedrich Dare card!
Hello girls! I hope you are enjoying a great Wednesday morning. It's been so pretty around here the last week. A bit windy, but that's pretty much the norm here in the Texas Panhandle so I don't really think about it much. I've been enjoying the fact that some of my iris' actually sent out blooms this year. I have several that put out the leaf part, but not the bloom. They are HUGE too! Loving that. Although trying to explain the whole "bloom" process to a 3 year old has been a challenge. We are definitely in that "why" stage* and this mommy just doesn't have an answer most of the time! So my standard answer has become: "Well, buddy, I don't know. That's just the way God made it". *He doesn't actually ask just "why" though; it's always a more complete sentence or "what's _(insert any and every word you can think of here)_ mean?"
It's been several weeks since I've had a Cuttlebug Challenge project to share. So I'm VERY HAPPY to be participating this week! We were to create something for Mother's Day - anything goes - so I just made a card. And a blast doing it. I used my Cuttlebug this week for it's original purpose - to die cut! No embossing on this card. Crazy!!
As I was sitting at my desk, thinking of what to create, I knew that I wanted to make a flower of some sort and I wanted to use one of the free images from Sugar Creek Hollow last Friday. I noticed some crepe paper and doilies on one of my shelves and decided to use those too. That heart doily is 6" across so this card is BIG!! The only 12x12 cardstock I could find was a grey scrap - so I paired it with some black velvet flocked paper to work with the red.
Here's the inside of my card. I used some scraps along with the free Mother's Day Sentiment that Tracy posted on Friday at Sugar Creek Hollow. There is also a round image that I think would make a cute "envelope seal". Be sure to grab them by Thursday if you haven't already. You can view the store here too!
