My Dear Friend

** Click here to see my birthday blog candy **

Happy Wednesday friends.  I hope you're having a wonderful week.  Like many areas of the states, we're having some really high temperatures.  Our forecast for the next week or so is 90 to 95 degrees ... ugh!  Now, I don't really like cold weather but 90+ is a little too warm lol!  I know, I know, in January I'll be wishing for these warm days, right?  Anyway, on to my card.

This is totally not my normal style of card ... I mean, there's no coloring involved.  But sometimes it's nice to have some cards like this in your stash for those last-minute things that pop up.  I used the Floral Haven Sentiments by Raindrop Echo Designs.  You can find this set over at the Whimsy Stamps store.  I used my nestabilities to cut out the sentiment.  The papers are by The Girls Paperie ... I'm so in love with these papers and you are probably getting tired of seeing them on my cards, huh?  I wrapped some PTI button twine around my card and tied it into a bow.  I added a few flowers, punched greenery, and pearls to finish my card.  

Thank you so much for stopping by.
