the rose garden

Happy Friday! I've got a ton of things planned for today so this will be a short post and then I'm off.

I made this card with a stamp that I got in a trade. It is a Thomas Kinkade from Cornish Heritage Farms and is called The Rose Garden. While the colors in this picture are quite bright I did want to tell you that the card, in real life, is quite soft and lovely.

As you can see inside I made this one as a birthday card. It was easy to make this card with a new clear card product that you can see HERE. I got one clear and one frosted base to try as a former purchaser from Shortcuts. The thing that I liked best about this clear base is that it was scored and easy to fold but I just read that they are not going to be coming scored but we have been assured it will be easy to fold them successfully.

Anyway, I don't want to sound like a commercial for these card bases...just wanted you to know what they are all about!

I hope you have a great Friday! I may or may not have a post for you tomorrow...depend on my day today and if I get time to craft or not. See ya later!
