Bloomin Wonderful!















Good Afternoon!

Is everyone having a great weekend? It's the weekend..... it has to be great! LOL! As a rule I only work half a day on Saturday. Today however I had to put seven hours in. :( Oh well, I'm home now and have the laundry going .. So now I can play with paper!

My card today is for two challenges... Are you surprised? I've chosen Jugs 4 and Crazy 4 Challenges 8. For Jugs 4 we were to add three geometrical elements. I have a rectangle, circle and square. I tucked the corner of my square under the focal image. Crazy 4 Challenges is a dimensional challenge. We had to make our own flowers. I haven't made little flowers like this since I was a kid. That was a long time ago.... believe me! Okay back to my card! :)) I stamped my focal image from Su's Thoughts and Prayers. I then made my little flowers and attached them. My card base is chocolate chip, layered with whisper white and dp from a mat stack. My sentiment,square and circle were cut out with nesties. Well off to finish my laundry!

Have a great day!
Patti

Recipe: Su, nestabilities

What a wonderful card, Patti! Such a great idea to use SU's Thoughts and Prayers floral branch! Love your little dimensional flowers you created. They remind me of the ones we made with a pencil eraser, glue and tissue paper :O) So clever, Patti!

Patti I'm loving those little floral buds - Kristin I think I missed that tutorial about erasers and glue and tissue> Patti was present in class that day - VERY cute on the branch - I love that you came up with a tiny, delicate 3D floral accent.
Thanks SO much for playing along with Just Us Girls again! I hope you had a great time and will join us again next Saturday for a brand new challenge.
