Happy Flower

Wow, it is Wednesday already. Can you believe it? Next thing you know it will be Thanksgiving and then Christ...never mind, I'm not going to type it. I plan on making a bunch of my gifts this year and need to get moving on it so if I ignore it the date will go away, right? Smiley from millan.net

Anyway, today's card is an interesting one. First of all it is HUGE a whopping 6"x6". That is not a size that I would usually make but since I used my Cricut with my Sure Cuts A Lot and a SVG pattern from My Scrap Chick. With only a few cuts this one was easy to cut and put together...I love that! I did decide that it needed a sentiment though so I inked up my stamp then thought I should use my stamp a ma jig. In the process of putting my stamp down it fell out of my hand and landed on the flower...nice huh? Sheesh. If you look at it close you can see where I dropped it. Silly thing! Guess what though? I'm sending it the way it is as I know it will be appreciated. Now I'm having a hard time resizing the envelope SVG that I have to fit this card but I'll get it!

And, I'm sure you've noticed my new blog look. While I liked the other one I really like the caricatures that I've been seeing and this new look has a lot of elements of my actual craft room so it is so fun. Do you see my diamond earring? Yep, that is so me too...the only thing I wear is my diamond earrings.

Anyway, have a super Wednesday! Hope you get your entire to-do list done today!

Lorie, I LOVE your new header! Totally crafty and so cute!!!
See, dropping the stamp didn't turn out as bad as you thought it would! I love the happy flower!
just an FYI, I mailed a 6 x 6 card a few weeks ago and it costs about $3.00 to mail because it's what they called an "unusual" size and shape so they had to send it parcel post! Gotta love the USPS! (-:

Don't you just hate that when the sentiment stamping messes with ya? My daughter and I have a thing where we send our "less than perfect" cards to each other because we know we love each other and it's the thought that counts sort of thing. Has become a tradition LOL! This is a darling card. Thanks for the links!

Love the new blog as well. I sure need to do something with my old blog decor. Did you design this?
