Fresh Florals Designer Paper

Hey there everyone! I hope you having a FANTASTIC morning!  So far mine has been very relaxing! I accidentally ignored my alarm this morning, so I missed my spin class....let me explain! 

My workout buddy told me she uses her FITBIT as her alarm clock in the morning and is awakened by buzzing on her wrist. I thought I would try that instead of my phone. The only problem was that I'm used to my FITBIT buzzing when I haven't walked in awhile, telling me to eat and letting me know I have a text or a phone call. Well...when I felt my wrist buzzing at 5am my first thought was WHO IS CALLING ME SO EARLY THIS MORNING...so I ignored it...TWICE!  When I did wake up at 8am...it was with a fright...could that have been one of my adult kids?  There was NO CALL...that was when I realized that it was my alarm! That meant no riding my bike down to the gym in time to use the treadmill for half an hour and then my spin class. I'm trying to get in shape before my family trip to Las Barriles in February of 2018...alas, today my plan was foiled! I must admit that I did enjoy sleeping in though!

Some of you know that I participate in a card ministry at my church, sending birthday and anniversary cards out to our congregation. Yesterday I made ten birthday cards and two anniversary cards. Today I'd like to share one of the birthday cards (my daughter's pick).


I'm behind on June birthdays, so I wanted to make some really simple cards. I LOVE our new In-Color Lemon Lime Twist, so of course, that is the color I chose for this card! My card base is Whisper White with it's first layer in Lemon Lime Twist cut to 4 1/8" X 5 3/8".  My next layer, 4" X 5 1/4", is designer paper from the Fresh Florals 12" X 12" pack. BEAUTIFUL!!! The sentiment is from the Cool Treats stamp set and is stamped in Lemon Lime Twist ink.  I added Glitter Enamel Dots...they are so FUN and add just a bit of color! Clean and simple...I was able to make TWELVE cards in about two hours!  Of course I'll be sharing them with you over the next few days!!



Hey...THANKS BUNCHES for stopping by! I LOVE that I get to do what I LOVE to do and then get to SHARE it with YOU!!! Have a WONDERFUL rest of your day! I'm off to a baseball game, but I'll be back tomorrow to share again!
