Good Morning Everyone. I hope you had a great 3 day weekend! We started our weekend with a trip to Epcot Friday evening to share in the celebration of a very good friend's birthday. We had perfect weather, which is unusual for Florida this time of year. Normally we get late afternoon thunderstorms, but not on Friday, we didn't get a drop of rain! Well, at least not at Epcot! We even stayed for the fireworks which is something that we don't usually do since it is such a madhouse when exiting of the park. Good food, good friends...it don't get much better!
Today's card was totally inspired by a Thank You gift from Migdalia. When she sent me the Thank You card that I posted last week, she included some crocheted flowers. Aren't they so cute! She is SO crafty! I really had fun with these. I cut an oval using an oval Nestibility from some K & Company designer paper that had flowers on it then glue the crochet flowers on top of the flowers leaving the stems show through, then layered it on top of a scallop Nestibility. I put the background paper onto a layer that was cut with an EK dotted scallop edge punch and added a bow that I used the Bow Easy. I think I have decided that I really don't like it after all, the over all look is probably OK but I like a tighter bow so I think I'll go back to my old way of making bows. The tag was cut with a Spellbinder tag that the words Thinking Of You were computer generated using Angelina font then used craft yarn to tie it to the ribbon.
