hello...


TGIF!

I'm so very glad it's Friday!

I'm on the Jane's Doodles blog today!

Here's my card:


I used my go-to Jane's Doodles set



Such a versatile set!  Let's be honest, a stamper can never have too many floral sets:)

I combined it with Pebbles' Walnut Grove...Santa brought the collection to me, or at least as much as Mrs. Santa could find at her local Ben Franklin...HA!

Any fun plans for the weekend?

I'm getting together with a bunch of my friends for shopping, dinner and a belated birthday celebration...it is sure to be a fun evening!

Eeeek..........LOVE this card, Amy! The newsprint and red stitching are so awesome against the kraft, and I adore that flower and tag. The paper piecing on that flower looks awesome. Love it directly on the text paper like that!
