Floral Frenzy Tags

Hope your day is well! Mine is FAN-TABULOUS! I got my notice last night that one of my cards got accepted into Card Trends Magazine for the August 2009 issue!!! Yippppeeeeee. I am super excited. That makes two now. Yea Me! Okie Dokie, Todays card i love because it makes me think of spring/summer. Actually the Cards Mag called for cards using Mustard Yellow, Teal, and Gray. What a combo huh? So this is what I came up with but it wasnt chosen. And that is okay because a different one was wooohoo. I began by stamping the polka dots in CTMH Grey Flannel on the background. Then made tags with Grey Wool, Ocean and Honey cardstock. I used second generation stamping for the lighter Ocean color on the flowers then stamped the outline image with Grey Wool. Cut each flower out and raised on dimensionals. I cut out a teeny weeny Honey circle then used Liquid Glass for dimension. (Love that stuff). The super cute polka dot ribbon is PTI and the buttons are Favorite Findings. I hope you like it, it is better in person however. Have a great night! DD gets to stay home with me tomorrow as school is closed for illness. But thank goodness she is not sick so we can play! Thank you so much for coming to see me today. I truly appreciate it!

Congratulations Julie - you deserve it !! You are awesome !! I wish our school did something like that - it seems that there are more kids out of school than in because of the stuff going around. Patrick has been feeling a little down, but I really believe it's because of sinus' or allergies. Beautiful gard - I love the flowers - they are so pretty and how in the world did you get the polka dots lined up so perfectly.
