Five Minute Friday – Black Eyed Susans


Hello and Happy Friday!  Are you flowers starting to bloom?  My peonies are just started to poke their stalks through, the garlic is starting to pop up and there are daffodils everywhere!  Spring is in the air!

Unfortunately even with all the new growth and birth of Spring, I needed a sympathy card (my least favorite kind of card to make – understandably!!)  I used the same little technique as last week of make flower centers on my fabric flowers.  But instead of Flower Soft like last week, I used Our Craft Lounge’s new Sparkly Fluff

I used my Flower Impressability again for the subtle background and then just a little piece of the Brown Leafy Vine ribbon.  My greeting is stamped in Palette Orangerie and is from my trusty All Occasions Messages set (I just omitted the “always” part of the saying).

You’ve got to check out the NEW section of the website.  Besides this yummy new Sparkly Fluff there are new Hero Arts sets, all the new Zva Bling that came in AND next week my CHA order from Basic Grey is coming.  In that order are two new AMAZING lines – Lime Rickey and Wisteria (GORGEOUS!!!!) and new BG STAMPS!  I’m so excited.  So, be sure to check out the site!

Have a great weekend!  It’s going to be in the 70s here!  WOW!

Oh you lucky duck. No 70s here, but 60 is pretty nice, for us at least. Can't wait for my daffs to start blooming.

Love the card, so clean and simple.

It's 70 and sunny here right now--I'm loving every minute of it! :D

So sorry you needed a sympathy card. I love the colors.
