The Best Part of My Day...

Hey!! I have had such a wonderful weekend!  Not only has the weather been beautiful & unseasonably cool in Kansas, but I had the pleasure of spending it with three of my favorite people:  Amy Kolling, Laurie Willison & Suzanne Dahlberg.  We spent time making cards, chatting, laughing, watching movies and eating way too much yummy food! :)  The time went by so quickly and it's hard to believe that something we've looked forward to for so long is already over!

I made quite a few cards during the weekend.  The first one that I'm sharing today is for two challenges.

You Best Part 1

I love that "you" die from Simon Says Stamp!  The sketch is based on the current challenge from Freshly Made Sketches #88.  The color scheme is from the ColourQ Challenge #191.  After I stamped the flowers on the die cuts, I popped some of them up with dimensionals and created a half frame for the sentiments.  I added stripes behind the image panel for a little subtle accent.

Thank you for stopping by!  I'll be sharing a few more cards later this week!

Dies: Simon Says Stamps "You", PTI Mini Blooms
Stamps: PTI Mini Blooms, Simon Says Stamps You, PTI BB: Super Stripes
