PPA177 & SR199


Oh my, I am so happy it is Friday, peeps!  I was giddy when I saw this photo inspiration at Stampin’ Royalty, where I have not played forever!  Isn’t this gorgeous?

I paired it with the Pals Paper Arts sketch for this week:
to make a “welcome” card for one of the four new recruits that signed up!  I am so excited for them!

LeAnne Pugliese WeeInklings Creative Elements Stampin Up

Although the sketch looks complicated, this is probably one of the easiest cards I ever made!  I fussy cut the flower from Creative Elements and stamped the flourish on a scrap of Very Vanilla….it fit very nicely in a Chalk Talk die….just a wee bit short but I covered up that end with my flower!  I added another seam binding bow—I seem to be making them a lot lately—and mounted everything on some Modern Medley designer paper.

Last week we walked down the road to give our neighbor’s horse a little treat:


Despite the muzzle, she managed to get that carrot with no problem!  Thanks for visiting today!
