FLOWERS FOR A FRIEND CLUB CARD - AND HAPPY ST. PATTY'S DAY!!

Happy Hump Day!!! And, Happy St. Patty's Day!!  I don't have a theme card BUT I did use green, LOL!!!  I can't believe how fast this week is going by - I am leaving for Reno Regionals tomorrow and I am sooooo not ready, LOL!!! But, I head out the door around lunch time tomorrow to meet my friends and they off we go!! I am excited because we are getting an evening with just us girls tomorrow night and then Regionals on Friday!! Short trip but I just know it is going to be a HOOT!!!!  Okay, now on to the card *wink* This is a Club card using embossing with clear powder.  I just love how vibrant the colors look when you heat them up!!! The image is from the set called Messages for Mom - such a pretty set!! It is available in the Occasions Mini but only until the end of  next month!! The paper is from the Shades of Spring line also found in the Occasions Mini.  The sentiment is from the SAB set called Whimsical Words, it has fabulous sayings and you can get it FREE with your $50 order but that will end on March 31st so if you want this set, put in your online order here or contact me and I will take care of it for you.  I don't want anyone to miss out on FREE - I love free, don't you??!!  I actually used the Extra Large Fancy Flower Punch (Occasions Mini) for my sentiment, I just wanted something different and fun, and I like how it looks!  All in all, a fun card to put together and they loved it too which is really what matters, right??!!  I love my Club gals, and on Saturday we are getting together and making some super fun proejcts so that is what I will be finishing up today so that it will all be done when I get home!! WHEW!! I have been a stamping machine, but if I have to work, this is the kind of work I want to do, LOL!!! I hope you all have a fabulous day!! I will have some posts while I am gone as well so make sure you stop by and visit - I love it when you do!!!
