MAKIN' USE OF THOSE SCRAPS!

Hi All!  I have another busy day ahead of me....I am trying to figure out how I ever went to work, LOL!  So, I am making a quick post and then I am off to the lawyer's office to sign the final settlement on the house - WHOOOOHOOOO!!! Yep, after 2.5 years, WE WON and we will now be able to fix all the defects left by the bad builder!! We are really excited because it will all be done by the summer which means we can put the new deck and stuff in and enjoy the good weather when it finally gets here!! So, there is a smile on my face today :-)  Okay, on to the reason you stopped by, LOL!  Today's card is based on the Sweet Sunday Sketch and it gave me a great excuse to use up some of my scraps that I have soooo many of!!!  I loved the layout of this sketch, it is really fun to play with!! I used my yummy Sending Love Specialty Designer Paper which is still available in the mini catty; I just love all the sparkles and embossing this paper has!!!  I also used my Scalloped Edge Border Punch and made another one of those fun flowers!!  It came together pretty quickly and I am happy with it!!  I really loved this sketch so I just may make another card *wink*  But, now I am off to meet my handsome hunk of a man and go to the lawyers!!! Thanks for stopping by, I really appreciate it!!!

These last two cards are so lovely...and great idea for using up the scraps!

I see you are very successfully using the new punch, as well as its corner punch!! I'm having a terrible time getting mine to look right! I think I may need lessons....or more patience!!

Great news on your home--what a burden must be lifted..and how nice to be able to go on with your plans.
