Good morning crafty friends! It's Friday...are you ready for your weekend? I am so excited! Saturday is our 28th anniversary and our son is moving to Chester, California...just under three hours from me, so we are going to Lake Almanor for a long weekend to celebrate and help him get settled! We're staying in a beautiful home on the lake that a friend rents out when she's not there. As much as I hate getting in a swimming suit...we're gonna spend a lot of time on the lake and on our bicycles!! It's an AMAZING lake. My husband and I did a bicycle ride around it a few years back and saw it for the first time!  It's like a smaller Lake Tahoe...without all the crowds! We're leaving this morning, YIPPEE!!!!

I have a great card to share with you this morning! It's one of my favorites lately!  It's made with the Daisy punch which is now available for order! If you come to my classes and told me you wanted one...they are on their way!!!

I belong to a Demonstrator Planning facebook page, where we share ideas and projects...I was INSPIRED!!  

For my card I embossed the Whisper Whited card base using the Pinewood Plank embossing folder. Next I embossed a square piece of Whisper White card stock with Layered Leaves embossing folder and added it to a Crushed Curry mat.  I used my Stitched Shapes framelits to cut a square using watercolor paper. I used my Aqua Painter to brush a Melon Mambo, Pumpkin Pie and Crushed Curry background (I've been using these colors a bunch lately).  The sentiment is from the Beautiful You stamp set and is stamped in Crushed Curry ink. I punched one daisy in Thick Whisper White card stock, cut it in half, curled the petals with my bone folder, layered one half on top of the other and attached it to the water color square with a dimensional. The center is a 3/4" circle that I cut twice, making it an oval, then embossed it using the Softly Falling embossing folder! I added a couple Glimmer Enamel Dots to balance the card a bit.  I JUST LOVE THIS CARD!!! It would make a beautiful birthday card, thinking of you card, thank you card...it can be used for any occasion!

Here is the card that INSPIRED me!  I pretty much just copied it...I LOVED IT THAT MUCH!!! I saved the photo so I could give credit, but I can't make out the demonstrator's name...I'm so sorry.  She is on the Artisan team and not from the United States (you can tell by her watermark and her sentiment). I'm gonna have to retrace where I found this card so I can give her proper credit!

I hope that you love this card as much as I do! Even more I hope that you are inspired to go out and create just as I was!  

THANKS SO MUCH for stopping by today!  ENJOY your weekend!  Stay safe!!
