Hello friends! It really IS a happy day around here! Hurricane Matthew brought an unexpected few days around here last week, but we were blessed to come through the storm safely, and we only lost some shingles and branches. So many families and businesses not too far away from me are still very much in the midst of recovery though, and they are not far from my thoughts.
After a crazy week, it felt so good to get back to work this week (especially once I shipped the kids back to school after a few hurricane days!) Today's card is bright and cheery, even as we start heading into fall. The temperature has actually turned pleasant here - I'm not sure if Matthew did that, or not but we are thrilled to have the house opened! I can't resist bright colors, even in the fall so this is a pretty typical color scheme for me! I had some flowers that I cut out for another project, so I used my leftovers and put this card together.
I used the Awesome You stamp set (SS-0097) to create the flowers. This stamp set has been a part of the Fun Stampers Journey offerings for quite a while - and if you don't have it...well, you should. I love these flowers! They are really fun to mix and match (and they stamp up a pretty fun background pattern too!) I paired the flowers with the Bloom Cluster Die (DI-0163) to create the fun little sprigs of greenery, and added a sentiment from the P.S. Greeting Stamp Set. (It's another of my go-to stamp sets, for sentiments!)
Thanks so much for stopping by today, my friends! xoxo
