March 1, 2013

Happy, Happy Friday everyone hope you have a great weekend planed.  I hope to see some of my grand children play ball on Saturday. 

I pulled out the ornamental Iron2 and flower shoppe cartridges today to make this card.  I also used SU paper, glossy accents and a little glitter.

I went to JA Tuesday, they have some great savings on their craft items that are mostly 50% off, I really stocked up on adhesive.  I have tried a lot of different adhesives to close and put these rolled flowers on a card, a lot of them don’t hold very long, the flowers are just too heavy.  I have found that hot glue is the most reliable way to make it stay where you put it.  

Hope you have a wonderful weekend. Thanks for stopping by.

I will be entering this in the following challenge:
