You're To Kind

While it is very windy outside this morning the sun is shining and that makes it a wonderful day so far!

Today's card is the other card that we did at stamp club last week. I actually found one like it from a blog that I visit but of course I don't remember which blog as I visit so may of them. I also forgot to take a photo of the inside as it is a little different.

This card is made with several items that are only available until the end of April in the Occasions Mini Catalog from SU!. The pink patterned paper is from the Sending Love Specialty paper pack and the green patterned paper is from the Sweet Pea paper pack. The Occasions Mini also offered Sweet Pea Stitched Felt which is used in the middle of the flower from the Pretties Kit. Now, the flowers in the Pretties Kit are white so I used Pretty in Pink ink and just sponged it on the flower so that it wasn't so start white. The sentiment is from the retired Whimsical Words (SAB 2010) set but any sentiment could be used in its place. I am absolutely loving the 5/8" Satin Ribbon in the OM and I have bought several of the colors. And as for the inside...the Sweet Pea patterned paper is a pocket into which we placed one of the Hugs Sending Love Notes. A Kisses Sending Love Note is on the front. Whew! That is a lot of information!

I got the rest of the trim painted yesterday so last night we put the new light fixture up. I do have to say that this isn't quite the style I had in mind for my craft room but since we only had one area to put a fixture we really wanted to make use of it. We found this light on the Lowe's website and had a little bit of a problem ordering it but as you can tell...it made it to our house. Honestly, now that it is up I don't think we could have picked anything better! The photo also gives you a little hint of the color of the room but doesn't really show it all that well. Next up on the list is to put the new flooring down. THAT I'm excited about too as I love the flooring we chose.

If you've made it this far, congrats! Thanks for reading all that! Now, off you go to have a wonderful day!Smiley from millan.net

Beautiful card Lorie!! Great DSP's you chose!! Love that felt flower in the middle of the big Pretties flower and the pearl just adds that finishing touch. Great idea!! I like your light fixture a lot!! It's perfect for moving the light exactly where you need it. What color are the walls? they look so soft and relaxing. Can't wait to see the floor!! Thanks for the pretty card and inspiration!
