Smile Daily


Well hello everyone!!! We had a fantastic weekend. Saturday was my hubby's graduation party which turned out fantastic! Can't beat lots of friends and excellent food. Sunday morning my birthday however was a little bumpy at 4am ended up in the ER with my 12 year old for a ear infection. I ended up coming home just in time to shower and make it to church. I came home and slept most of the afternoon so it was a nice quiet birthday! We'll celebrate this weekend with dinner. I couldn't wait for the last two days to pass so I could get to stamping again. I've seen all these challenges and inspiration that I had to post something today. Sorry the picture is so dark but it's night time here. I'll probably repost a new picture tomorrow morning. This card is for the Cupcake Craft Challenge blog. The challenge is a inspiration challenge with pretty yellow flowers. I used my last big piece of Wild Wasabi. I really wish Stampin' Up! would keep some of these in colors because they are some of the best colors they offer. I used my Swiss Dots cuttlebug folder on the two yellow strips. I used the stamp set Women of Life by Papertrey Ink and the sentiment is from Stampin' Up! called Edgy Eloquence. For the inside of the flowers I used some green flock. I tried to flock some chipboard circles that fit perfect inside the bigger flowers however that didn't work out too well. But I think it looks perfect the way it is. It's really so summery. Definitely looks better in real life. I hope you ladies check out the Cupcake Craft Challenge blog they have some cute things going on over there!
