I was going to say good morning but now I see it is past noon!!! Where does the time go?!!! I had such an awesome morning!! Not only did I create a card using one of my fave sets from Our Daily Bread Designs, I got to meet my great friend and dt sister Grace (Th-ink-ing of You) for a coffee at Dunkin Donuts!! It was so fun to just sit down and chat with her for an hour!!!!! rather than chatting through cyberspace! She is just as sweet as I knew she would be and we had an awesome time together!! She is out from NC visiting her father in law this weekend in NY which gave us the opportunity to meet up!! What a blessing it was!! Thanks Grace for making time to get together. I so enjoyed spending time with your husband and daughter as well!!

Well...I was saying I had made a card for today's IC194. I used these two photos from the Pylones site as my inspiration: Pink flowers and Butterflies. I used the Happy Birthday set from Our Daily Bread Designs. I loved all the pink in the inspiration so I chose to use Rasberry Tart paper from SU and the Regal Rose CS. All the borders around the circle, butterflies and the verse are from the same stamp set. It is just so versatile and you can do so much with it! I added the hatpin, sewing, and corners to give it some elegance.

Card Recipe:
Stamps: Our Daily Bread Designs- Happy Birthday
Paper: Rasberry Tart Paper, Regal Rose, Kiwi Kiss, White CS
Accessories: Spellbinders Label 3, Spellbinders Circles, Vintage Corner die from Cuttlebug, Regal Rose Ribbon, Swiss Dots and Leaves Embossing Folder, EK Success Moracco Lace Punch,
Hero Arts Pearls, hatpin, pearl and pink crystal beads.

Thanks for stopping by today!! I hope you have an awesome weekend!!! I can't wait to be inspired by your creations!

I am so glad you got to meet Grace. Isn't she awesome. I get to see her soon I hope. We live so close and don't get together enough. Your card is super. I love the stitching and this verse is really great with the butterflies. I think this paper is probably one of my favs. You always have the best layouts on your cards. Thanks for sharing.
