You Inspire Me/Card Patterns

Hello my sweets.  I am just getting over a nasty stomach bug that ripped through our family faster than anything I have ever seen.  Each day another person got sick.  First my son on Monday, then my dad and husband the next day and then my mother and I Wednesday night.  I have never seen something that contagious before.  My son was only around my parents for an hour on Monday and they ended up sick too.  YUCK!!
Any who...on to my card.
 I made this card using the new sketch at Card Patterns.  I actually made this card days ago and just ended up posting other cards.  Can you tell I am loving my new Spellbinders Dies?  I have wanted this Lacy Circles die since it came out.  I am not waiting so long to get the new release this time.  I found a great place to get Spellbinders Dies and Just Rite stamps for a good price and free shipping Scrap Mart.  I like to share when I find something or somewhere I like to get supplies.  I love it when others share too.
I also finally used one of my new flowers from Reccollections at Michaels  I also used my Craft Seam Binding from Martha Stewart.  They had all her ribbon on Clearance.  I never even saw the seam binding before that day.  How sad.  I have also been putting off using my Fine Linen cardstock from PTI.  I loved the ribbon and button colors...but not the cardstock color so much.  It worked very well for the October Afternoon papers since they are heavily aged already.


I am off to take a nap.  I am still weak from that darn bug.  I hope you all have a wonderful day.  It is warming up here and sunny.  We are going to have temps around 56 by Saturday.  I can't wait.

Thanks so much for stopping by,
Heather
