Welcome to Friday!

Good morning everyone and welcome to Friday!  It has been a very long week for me in these parts and I'm happy to have a day that I can take a moment and Breathe!  My garden has been producing and it is canning season in East Tennessee.  I have been very busy picking and canning green beans and tomatoes this week.  I've had my head down and all of a sudden it is Friday!  I'm taking the day off and going into town just to get out and about a bit!  I have a huge mug of coffee on my desk this morning and after my post I plan to spend a little time visiting all my blogging friends and see what you have had going on this week.   

Here is my card I'm sharing with you today.  I made the flowers using the Arianna Blooms stamp from Heartfelt Creations and the frilly die cuts behind my flowers are from the Arianna  Lace Dies.  My flower die for cutting out the blooms was on back order so I fussy cut the flowers after I stamped them with a light tan ink.  I used the snowflake punch to make the center of these flowers since I don't receive the die until this morning.  I am so excited to be getting the die because these petals are just gorgeous and I am so excited to be able to play.  My little sentiment is from Flourishes and is layered on a Spellbinder's die cut.  I also used the Bracket Borders Two from Spellbinders for the layers of my card.  So there you have it.  Hope you enjoy this that I look at it, it reminds me of Fall.

Now I'm off to visit.  Hope your day is filled with joy and that you take a moment to "Breathe".

Oh, my! Your hand cut flowers look as amazing as anything die cut. Have mercy! You mean I could do that with some of my many flower stamps even though I don't have flower dies? Sure...right...maybe after years of fumbling practice. You make them look so real! A snowflake die for the centers? See, I never would have thought of that, but I'm thinking of it now. Such inspiration! Your die cuts are gorgeous and I love the colors. I've still never gotten into canning -- maybe after retirement -- but I've been cooking up and freezing plum sauce this weekend with a big box of plums I was given. Also stamping and gardening... but today is a doggie day. We're going up the river for a picnic!
