IMG_0556 (Medium)Today we are having a flashback thursday! I thought it would be interesting to check out which card has been my most viewed/shared card and it is this one from June of 2011! It was made with stampin up cardstock, and the stampin up  blossom party die die set ( still a favourite die of mine)The leaves were  done with a stampin up sizzix leaf die, and I used assorted brads to hold the flowers together. very busy day off today , what with shopping and a trip to the dentist, the day is running away from me and not too much time left for the craft room. At least the weekend is in sight! til tomorrow….

The card on the left also uses stampin up ruffled ribbon,sentiment stamp and blossom party die and on the card on the right I did a bit of fussy cutting using one of the sheets in the paper pad.Today I spent a lovely couple of hours in the craft room making beach themed birthday cards and a couple of bon voyage cards using this months  release from kaisercraft. warmed me up a bit – it’s been a wet cool day here today!
