cccb #172 ~Blessings!

Happy Friday!! I took a little break in my house cleaning today to make a card for the City Crafter challenge. This is another new one for me. My sweet friend Sue Lelli is guesting over there, so I'm playing in honor of her! I've been making several CAS cards and cards that are a bit different from my usual style. So today I went back to my sweet little clusters of pretties and one of my favorite label die cuts!


I really am in love with this card! Those gingham flowers haven stolen my heart, aren't they sweet!! I bought a package of them at the convention this past spring. The last one, gosh I need to find more but they had no name on them. Just a little package of a few pink and a few green blooms. I paired them up with some vintage cream felt flowers from PTI and this pretty Webster's Pages papers. The die cut label is MFT and I've added my pretty IO sentiment to it with Memento rose bud ink. My ink pad is kind of juicy so it didn't make the best impression on my PR stitched border along the top. Of course it was the last thing I added to the card ~ drat!



Okay kids I'm off to clean downstairs now! 
Enjoy your day and thanks for popping in on me. ~Lisa

Thanks for all the blog love you've left for me in recent weeks! Sorry I haven't been very good about returning it! :) It really brightens my days!!!

Jinny Newlin said...

Oh, this is utterly delicious, Lisa! LOVE all that fabric, and you're so right about those little, gingham blooms! They're made from ribbon. I've made them before, but it's been awhile. If you really love 'em, I'm sure there's a tutorial online someplace. Then, you could make them in ANY color your little heart desires ;). What a perfect take on the inspiration pic!
