sparkly flowers and sharing my space...

Hi Friends~It is Wednesday~two more days until Friday~HOORAY!!

I am excited to announce that my favorite daughter, Ashley, will now be contributing to my blog on a regular basis (woot!!). She was a guest blogger here last week...and has been debating starting her own blog~so I suggested she get her feet wet on my blog to see if she liked doing it. She will post about random stuff such as fashion, hairstyles, psychology (she almost has her MA degree), TV shows, church stuff, baking, her cute kitties and lots more!!! She is a great writer, and I am super excited to share my space with her!!! She will keep us all "hip" so check back on Tuesday's & Thursdays for Ashley's posts (and if you have a few moments to spare~leave her some blog love).

So here is a quick card I whipped up the other day, that was really pretty easy (and I didn't use any ribbon or buttons). I used my SU! flower punch (I think it has since been retired and cannot remember the set it coordinated with???). I punched the flowers out of Raspberry Fizz cardstock and then added a rhinestone to the center of each one (way prettier and sparkly IRL). Then just used a mini pop dot to adhere the flowers to a stamped Turning a New Leaf layer.
