an old-fashioned hello...


Happy Friday!


Here's a card that I put together this morning....I went to bed super early last night and woke up super early:)

The celery card base is vintage A Muse 4.25 x 4.25....I'm not much a purple fan but I do love it teamed up with celery...screams spring, dontcha think?  I used Wisteria chalk on the Hero Arts Small Solid Flower....the sentiment is from the Hero Arts Just Saying Hi set.  

I was inspired by the latest CASE study:


I super  Laura Bassen:


Love her style!

I was also inspired by the current Hero Arts Challenge:


I adore blooms...so thank you Hero Arts for the inspiration!
Speedy quick reminder about the current Flashback Friday Challenge:




Thrilled to have Paper and Such as our Super Sponsor:


Time is running out...the challenge ends tonight at 11:59 pm pacific daylight...link up TODAY!

Friday...so glad it is Friday...although it is the start of a very busy weekend...tomorrow my girl turns 17...sigh...where does the time go?

Okay peeps, have an EXcellent day!
