Shady Daisy

Greetings friends; how are you? I've been performing as "supermom" the past week and will continue until Wednesday of this upcoming week. We have some type of practice or game every single day of the week - except Friday! CRAZY!!!!

I made these two cards a couple of weeks ago but haven't had time to upload them to the blog-o here for you to see. What do you think of the beautiful background flower? I LOVE it!! It's called Shady Daisy by Cornish Heritage Farms (and don't tell, but I bet I've had it a YEAR and never used it). **GASP** I know, that's a crime isn't it? You are only seeing a portion of the background flower, but I just love it. The flower is stamped in Hibiscus Burst ink onto the same color paper. Yummy!!

The flower is layered onto PTI's Dark Chocolate which is then layered onto PTI's Kraft. The layout for the card is from a pretty new blog - Crazy 4 Challenges. They have some incredible layouts and you all know how much I love sketch challenges!! Both of these card are gratitude related..that was another challenge, but I didn't make a note of the specific challenge. Free Smiley Courtesy of www.millan.net

The sentiment is from Verve Visual's "Beautiful You" stamp set and says "Gratitude is the fairest blossom which springs from the soul. ~Henry Ward Beecher". Such a beautiful sentiment.

I distressed the floral & chocolate background; love that distressed look!

Thanks for popping in; it's always so great when you visit! Hope you're having a great weekend!! Hugs, ~M.
