FLOWER FOR A FRIEND CLUB CARD

Hi all!!! WOW!!! What a week!!! I promise I did not just leave....someone here hit a light/power pole which took out my Internet AND my phone line so we had NOTHING for the last two days - this is the first day back and I am soooo happy that they got it fixed!! I admit it - I am addicted to my computer, LOL!!! However, I have been stamping and I have something to share with you today that has an element on it that I saw on Patty's blog and fell in love with. It's the flower!! Yep, using the new Extra Large Fancy Flower punch in the Occasions Mini(item 118073) you can make this gorgeous flower! Of course, I don't have the vintage cards and books that Patty has so I made my own vintage paper by sponging, distressing, and crumpling, LOL! but I am happy with how it came out. Thanks for the inspiration Patty, you ROCK! And, just so you can see a close-up of how fun this flower is, here is another pic showing you just the flower! Isn't it purdy??!! Heehee!! I am using this card tomorrow for my stamp club and I am hoping they love it!! Lots of fun elements - dry embossing, punching, sponging, and of course some yummy hardware! So, I am off to cut, cut, cut some paper for my gals tomorrow but I will be back with another fun project to share soon! Thanks sooo much for stopping by, I sure do appreciate all your wonderful comments! Have a fabulous weekend!

Your blog keeps getting better and better! Your older articles are not as good as newer ones you have a lot more creativity and originality now. Keep it up!
And according to this article, I totally agree with your opinion, but only this time! :)
