FMS #36 & PDCC #133 ~ Thank You!

In honor of our Memorial Day holiday weekend I have a fun little red, white and blue number to share with you! I put this card together using the design from Freshly Made Sketches and the delightful colors from the Play Date Cafe ~ baby blue, denim and cherry. I was inspired by the country farm feeling in a couple of the inspiration pics and of course the sweet polka dot shirt in the top right corner!


I went straight to my paper pack from Lily Bee Designs: Double Dutch containing the sweetest assortment of ginghams, polka dots and florals. This paper collection just screams summer! Using my PTI Take 3 die I cut three floral squares and also cut the denim gingham with the same die. I'll use those squares for another project. I mounted this to a white panel and then my cherry red card base. I just love this little mason jar of wild flowers by Endless Creations ~ country charm at it's best! And then of course there are my favorite sweet fluttery polka dot butterflies from a BasicGrey set. I swoon every time I ink them up ~LOL!!! The arched thank you sentiment is by Savvy Stamps. I wrapped some twine complete with a PTI tiny tag around the stamped panel then added it to my card with foam tape. A pretty simple card that just says HAPPY to me!


Guess what!!??!!.....You've just read my 200th post! Eeeek ~ I can't believe I've had that much to say and made SO many cards. Hey what can I say...I'm having fun! I also have some new followers and I want to welcome you and thank you for joining me! Blessings ~Lisa
