Life is Sweet


Happy Wednesday!
It took me a little while to get back in the swing of things after a few days off (been working on this card little by little for 3 days! lol), but we had a wonderful, wonderful time away. Thanks so much for the sweet anniversary wishes! I've included some pictures below from our weekend away. Apparently there was some kind of Austin Healey convention in town (unless all the Austin Healeys live in one town), so I apologize if this is your car that I am posting a picture of, but I just thought it looked brilliant with the orchard in the background!

My card for today is kind of whimisical. I've used a stamp that I bought from Funky Kits and it's in the Lucy line made by Kanban Crafts. I wanted to use as much of the image as I could on my card. Normally, I work with smaller layouts because of smaller stamps and I have a more difficult time using a larger pallette. But I must say...I'm starting to get hooked on the square cards!

The patterned paper I've used for this card is Sassafras Indie Girl and the flower was created using the delictible PTI dies that I couldn't resist buying after getting to play with them at my friend Mary's house. The sentiment is from one of the Pure Innocence sets and the punch is Martha Stewart. Oh and the image is colored with Copics and spritzed with Smooch Spritz (you can see just a hint of sparkle on the green background, but it's all over the image too)!

Thanks so much for stopping by today! Only a few more days before a winner for my blog candy is chosen! There's still time to put your name in though!
