Picked Posies Just for You!

  Hello, So glad you stopped by.We are now into fall and it's already getting cold. I'm trying to hold off on turning the heat on. 

We are suppose to warm up this week though. Today is beautiful. Some of the leaves are already starting to fall.

 Looking forward to chilly nights sitting around the fire pit drinking hot chocolate and making smore's with the grandkids.

Still have some symptoms of Covid but I am doing better. It's just a slow process.

Wanted to share a birthday card that I made for my niece Shawna. 

Her birthday is not for a few days and I think she will love this one. I really like the colors of the flowers with the Kraft cardstock. I have had that dot embossing folder for years and hadn't used it for a good while. The stamps used are from Taylored Expressions and Stampin Up. The white die cut is also from Stampin Up. Colored the flowers with alcohol markers. The centers of the flowers are light blue. 

Hope you enjoyed seeing my card. My next blog post will probably be on the third of October. Hope you can make it back.
