Bloom Where You are Planted

What a week this has been so far.  I am still trying to get used to the new school schedule.  My poor son spends 3 hours a day on the bus if I don't take and pick him up.  The whole school system is a mess here.  It makes me really appreciate Iowa much more now.  So anyway....


I made a card for this weeks Card Patterns sketch.  This will work with just about anything.  As you can see I am putting my new MME papers to good use.


I am in love with the Blush 6x6 pack of MME papers.  Such beautiful vintage designs.  I used the cute little PTI Tag-its #3 set and a sweet bloom from Recollections.  The border punch is Martha Stewart and the doily die is from PTI.  The faint polka dot background that I stamped at the top is from Round and Round.



Thanks so much for stopping by,
Heather

Love your sweet card Heather! So sorry with the school situation.Our highschool buses were taken away last year.This puts way too many inexperienced teenage drivers(with a car full of carpooling kids) on the roads if you ask me. What are these poor parents to do? Thank goodness my son is grown and married!!!

Heather said...
