Sugar and Spice....

Hello!!! I cannot believe it has been a week since I have last posted!!! Time flies by!! The girls had a busy week with activities and I have had the worst sinus headache for ever!! It has been difficult looking at the computer and turning it fast! But I feel alot better today and hopefully I am done with that.

Anyways here is a card I made for my niece's birthday. I have used the beautiful sketch from Friday Sketchers and I finally tried out the flowers I seen on Stampartic. I seen that Marlene made one and it reminded me that I wanted to try it out so that fits the Just Magnolia challenge of making your own flowers!! In the directions for the flowers they say to use 3 retro flower punches in various sizes. I do not have the smallest one so I used the hydrangea punch from Martha Stewart and I think it worked just as nice. I was really pleasantly surprised with the outcome. I don't have patience to wait for it to dry!! LOL After it did dry I did add some crackle paint to it though. I also shimmer misted the flower and all the Kraft card stock in Baby's breath.


Well thanks so much for stopping by!! We have a beautiful fall day here and some brisk weather for our walk to the bus stop this morning!! I feel winter coming!! Oh I can't wait!! LOL I am not crazy I just love snow!!
Have a wonderful day and make sure to stop by tomorrow for a sneak peek of the new La La Land winter stamps! The DT is having a blog hop of sneak peeks and a chance to win some new stamps!
