it's your day!

This is my post 2 of 2 for today...please click HERE to pop over to my The Craft's Meow post below.

Hello and a big Happy Monday!

Happy because we are enjoying a long weekend here in the states for Memorial Day.

Monday's mean the EAD Designs blog hop!
{it officially starts at 11 am EST}

You should have arrived here from Liz's blog, Liz's Paper Loft.  If not, you'll want to start at the EAD Designs blog....every Monday there is a give-a-way.  All you do is start at the EAD Designs blog, leave a comment...hop along while leaving comments along the way.  It's fun AND inspirational:)

I have a colorful little card for you today...okay, so most of my cards are colorful:)

I'm trying really hard to use my hoarded goodies...this one is chock full of them:

I hadn't inked up the fun cake from Jane's Bakery until now....isn't it CUTE?  All the patterned paper is Jenni Bowlin...it's her 4x4 paper so my card is 4.25 x 4.25.  The canvas bloom is Jillibean and the button is DeNami Design.



I was inspired by Jay Gee's Nook challenge:


I'm chuckling because originally I was going to do pink and green and then the picture in the lower left hand corner caught my eye...and then BAM...my card took a life of her own:)



Okay, I'm the end of today's hop!  Hope that you had fun:)
