Hi everyone and Happy Friday!  It's a gorgeous day here today in Pennsylvania and I was outside earlier with my daughter and my new puppy.  Trying to take my puppy for a walk is a real picnic. My neighbors must be laughing at me because she doesn't want to walk and I end up carrying her instead, so I had a 2 year old in one hand and a puppy in the other.

And speaking of such a beautiful day, I decided to post this card I made last week for my card class.  I used another stamp set that you are able to earn during Stampin's Up! Sale-a-bration promotion.

The flower was colored using my Stampin' Up! markers and then stamped onto my white card stock.  The butterfly and hello sentiment were just stamped using ink pads.  Then I added a small row of rhinestones jewels just below the word hello and a melon mambo color button in the center of my stamped flower.

My background was embossed using my big shot and the dots embossing folder.  The bottom of the tempting turquoise card stock layer was punched using my scallop trim border punch and the corners of my main stamped image layer were punched using the ticket corner punch- I often times forget about that little punch and it's such a great addition to any card.  The dp I used is another SAB choice- it's the ice cream parlor designer paper pack.

Well, that's about all for today.  I'm off to get supper going because I want to feed the kids early today and I'm cooking out on the grill today.  Have a great weekend and I'll be back again on Monday!
