"I had oodles of time, a well planned idea that worked out just as I envisioned, and this was the perfect crafting experience". I just wanted to see how it felt to say that at least once...in reality, I got part of the idea for this card while trying not to blow over as I stood in the yard with Dolly the insomniac dog at 2am with the Santa Ana winds blowing at gale force strength and the outside temperature was 80°. The rest of the creation of this card was downhill from there. This is for today's CAS364 which is to use the letter from LOVE in the card. Here is what I thought of (very uninspired, but considering the circumstances, it is a wonder I could even get one letter right).
L- LACE boarder punch
O- OLIVE green
V - VINES of leaves
E - EMBOSSING folder
I had made a similar card ages ago, but the flower was very puffy and fragile, making it hard to mail. This is much more postal friendly. TFL, Francie

What a delightful, cheerful card! Your fussy cutting is amazing and even more amazing is creating anything at that hour! I fell off the chair laughing at the "perfect crafting experience". Is there really such a thing? Thanks for sharing your talent as well as a good chuckle!

Oh, Francie, this is gorgeous, and I adore sunflowers! They just light up a room and the outdoors! My DH has actually grown them, and they are amazing and grow so tall! I love the beautiful design and details of your card and am always tickled by your vibrant, glorious colors! Hugs, sweet friend!
