Bless Your Little Heart!

Happy Friday, happy first day of spring, and happy birthday to my favorite sister! (okay she is my only sister, but still......)
I have a vintage inspired card using this adorable image from Crafty Secrets. 
I layered the card over various scraps of papers I had in my stash.  I wanted the image to pop a bit, so I backed it with black card stock.  I have been on a kick with these Martha Stewart flowers lately, so I figured why stop now?  
I added some lace, seam binding, and leaves I had previously cut using my Silhouette. 
Today is my sister's birthday!
Since I am off next week for spring break, we will get a chance to meet for lunch and celebrate then.
Both of us work, have kids, and she lives a state away, so making the time to get together can be tricky.
I am glad we are carving out a bit of time to visit.
I am off to school!
Gotta run!
Enjoy your day my friends!

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Happy St. Patrick's Day my friends!
I don't have one ounce of Irish blood running through these veins, but on March 17th we ALL have a bit of Irish in us don't we? ;)
Since I don't generally send St. Patrick's Day cards, I opted for a good luck card instead. 
I found this adorable cut at the Silhouette store.
I added Doodlebug glitter to each section of the rainbow and clouds.  I added gold Flower Soft to the pot that was given a coating of black glossy enamel. As a finishing touch I added a sentiment from SRM stickers.  
Our school is giving a little treat to all of the students today, Green River floats! YUM! :)
And of course we all wear our St. Paddy's attire!

Have a great day!
