Happy Monday Everyone!! I hope you all had a great weekend!!  We are down to a little under three weeks now before the closing on the house (we think or so we have been told).  Life has been busy trying to get everything packed!! I have not had a lot of time for blog hopping or creating.  Sorry!!

Anywho I do have two creations to share today.  The first is a sneak peek of a set to be released at Our Daily Bread Designs on March 1 (Thursday).  I am just loving these Sweet Friendship sentiments!! So many great sentiments and a BEAUTIFUL font!!

I used the Flowersoft Wildflowers Die cut dimensions adding citrus crush flowersoft (ultrafine).  The Our Daily Bread Designs Sweet Friendship is framed with Spellbinders Petite Ovals.  
The Flowersoft panel is framed with the Lattice Rectangle from Spellbinders. The ribbon is white wrinkle ribbon from May Arts tied with the Bow Easy.  The designer paper is Prima English Garden.
