Flower For You

Good morning everyone! Here we are beginning another week! Wow! And it's nearing the end of October! Nick just ended his first quarter of school. Time just seems to be going by so quickly! The boys ended their soccer season on a super note! 6-1!! We needed a big win and it was nice that it came on the last game! Now we are down to one sport in our family - lol! Nick has a basketball game on Tuesday and then he has Thursday and Friday off this week. That will be a nice break! And it will be good for me to kind of catch up!

Today's card is one that I did with my stamp club earlier this month. I had wanted to use this set and coordinating framelits so I came up with this easy card. I adhered a piece of More Mustard that was cut with the Apothecary Accents framelits onto a piece of Very Vanilla. On top of this is a strip of Orchard Harvest designer paper. Then this whole panel is popped up onto a card base of Very Vanilla. I stamped the jar from Perfectly Preserved in Early Espresso onto Very Vanilla. Inside the jar I stamped the stem in Lucky Limeade and then this panel is adhered to a piece of Early Espresso and then popped up onto the card. I stamped the flower in More Mustard onto Very Vanilla and the cut it out with the Cannery framelits. I put a neutrals brad in the center before popping it up onto the jar. I also used the Cannery framelits to cut the jar top from the Orchard Harvest designer paper. I adhered the paper to a cut piece of Very Vanilla (for stability) and then wrapped some linen thread around it. This is also popped up onto the card. Finally, I stamped the greeting onto Very Vanilla in Early Espresso and cut it out by hand. This is adhered to the jar. Thanks for stopping by and have a super day!
