I love this sentiment from Hero, it reminds me that whatever the day brings you can usually find some joy there if you take the time to look for it. My son and daughter-in-law have been visiting since Thursday and it has been wonderful, so good to see them :). I have introduced Anita to the joy of cardmaking and I think she is hooked on it. She has made some great cards.
I found a little time this morning to make this card using a new flower stamp from Magenta that I found over at Ellen Hutson online store. If you are not familiar with Magenta, they are a stamp store in Canada that has great stamps. I am so excited that Ellen Hutson is carrying some of their products now.
I stamped and colored the image. Ran it through the silhouette sd to cut a frame. After the frame was done I stamped it with the Envelope pattern stamp and then put the stamped center back in place. This made it be one layer and fit together like a puzzle piece. Usually I would have just layered the frame over the center image, but I like this look better.
Stamped the image on the side...the joy of clear stamps...you can put them anywhere without a stamp positioner. All that was left to do was punch the little butterflies from BoBunny pp using a Martha Stewart Punch.
Going to spend the rest of the day enjoying spending time with family. Have a great start to your week and thanks for visiting!
