Happy Wednesday My Blogger Friends!
Well......SUPER SAD DAY for me........My daughter left early this morning to go back home to Wisconsin. Here we are at Bach's Nursery yesterday getting some cactus plants for our patio and for Cheryl to take home......
Here are the beautiful cactus arrangements we walked into when we stepped into the Bach's Nursery Show Room.
And here is Cheryl with the cactus that she picked out......
And Bach's Nursery did an amazing job of packaging it up for her ........ So she could take it on the plane with her this morning.
And here are Cheryl and Jack as they enjoyed a final breakfast at Sunnyside Up Café.
NOW........As one adventure ends........Another begins. I'll be heading out on Friday for my three day Scissors and the City Retreat. Looking forward to spending the weekend with my Mesa/Gilbert girlfriends. (THREE FULL DAYS of scrapbooking and fun!!!!)
My blog post for today is Wine-Down Wednesday. My middle of the week card feature for today will hopefully offer you some inspiration and provide you with some motivation to keep you moving through your busy week. Let's jump right in with my card share for today........
This happy card will make any friend sit up and take notice.
I began by running the front panel of my Melon Mambo card through the Big Shot using the 'Petal Burst' embossing folder.
My sentiment was stamped from the 'Special Reason' set. I used Melon Mambo ink to stamp my sentiment and then grabbed my Paper Snips to create a banner flag at one end of my sentiment piece.
For my focal point......I die-cut one of the flowers from the 'Stylish Stems Framelits Dies' onto a panel of Whisper White cardstock. All I needed to do was add a piece of Melon Mambo DSP to the backside of the Whisper White die-cut panel.
At the bottom of my die-cut panel......I wrapped a piece of Melon Mambo Thick Baker's Twine around that panel and tied it up into a pretty bow.
And that's all it took to bring this pretty card together.
Thanks for joining me today! I'll be back tomorrow with a Tag Thursday creation to share with you ........ Hope you can make plans to stop back and join me for that share. Keep Living Your Dream!
