Happy Friday!

TGIF!!!! It's been a busy week for me and I am so happy the weekend is right around the corner. Last night's Hanna Stamps! release party was so much fun! Lots of chatter and ooohing and ahhing. There was even talk of moose in thongs! It was hilarious.

I made today's card for my inlaws. It's either their 37th or 38th wedding anniversary, so I had to whip up something pretty special for them. I got all my inspiration from today's Limited Supplies challenge (LSC193) over at SCS. Jeanne challenged us to use only a rectangle, circle and ribbon on our card.
SU's 'Best Blossoms' set is the only flower set I own but I adore it because of the branch of leaves in it - they can be used in so many ways! I started out by stamping the leaves onto a scrap piece of the green cs I used behind the back panels. I inked up the flowers with the Pumpkin Pie first then lightly dabbed the red chalk ink around the edges, then I stamped them out. Without cleaning off the stamp, I added more red ink to the edges of the stamp and stamped it out again. This gave me a few flowers in a range of colors to work with. I then cut all the pieces out and either mounted them to the circle panel with glue or dimensionals. The circle panel has some sponging around the edge of it to give it some more dimension to it. The three back panels were matted with green cs and then the edges were distressed.

This card wasn't hard to do, just a little time consuming cutting out all the pieces. Hope my Inlaws like it!

Oh, before I forget, if you feel the need to drop some dough today (if last night wasn't enough!) head over to Pink Poison's blog for a preorder sale of the up coming sets. Marie is selling them below her usual retail price for today only so you'd better snag 'em quick!

My three year old is sleeping over at my Inlaws tonight (our anniversary present to them! LOL) so hubby and I have the house to ourselves! Waaahoooooooooooo! *insert Barry White music here*

Toodles all!
