heartfelt thanks...


TGIF!!!!

I'm always thrilled when it is Friday!!  

I have a ton of crafting to do since I'm going to try to take a bloggie break next week but will be posting my Design Team projects:)

Pssst....it might just be a week filled with some 
b l o g  c a n d y

Here's today's card:


 I used one of my FAV Jane's Doodles sets:



I teamed it up with



This one is chock full of FAB sentiments, dontcha think?

I was totally inspired by the latest



I almost cased Therese's card to a tee {or is that 'T'?}...I trimmed my base down to 3.5 inches tall to really capture the Peony bloom.  That particular panel is the palest yellow textured cardstock from my Studio Calico May 2012/35mm kit.

Here's to a fun-filled weekend:)

  20. Peony??? Did someone say peony?? "The peony roots that Samuel Wade brought with him to Colorado in 1881 inspired him to submit the Latin name for peony, 'Paeonia' as a town name. The post office wouldn't allow the extra vowel, so Paeonia became Paonia. The full name of the flower is Paeonia mascula.
