Happy Birthday Flower Blocks...The Card Concept #33

Hello!

We've had a busy Sunday spent in the 'big city,' (left at 7am and returned just now at 8pm) with my husband teaching a cycling coaching course and I hanging about with him for the morning session, before heading off to a nearby mall for some retail therapy.  I didn't buy anything, but oh, there's plenty on the wish list!

Best news:  my technology issues seem to be resolving themselves! Yayyy!  I'll be catching up on comments, emails and FB messages this week (fingers crossed the resolution remains stable!).

Since I'm madly dashing about doing my sous chef duties, my post is a quick-draw quick share for
The Card Concept #33


My clean and layered flower blocks (Clearly Besotted...love CB!) are meant to mirror the solid of the lamp shade, the lines of the grey wall and the polka dots of the ottoman.  Such a fun stamp and die set...


Must dash but before I go: THANK YOU for continuing to visit me and leave sweet comments, even when I'm in the midst of 'seeming' to be MIA!  As I mentioned...some techie techniques have been put into play, so...I should be good to go soon!

Wishing you a marvelous Sunday evening; thank you for dropping by and adding sparkle to my day!
Hugs,

  1. Yay for technical difficulties resolutions at last! Let's hope that is the end of it. Now onto your card - so lovely. The grey and the pink - lovely combo. Love how you have popped up the images with that sweet banner at the bottom. Another classic C card! :)

  9. LOVE how you gleaned your card elements from the photo! Sa-weet clean and simple (or perhaps clean & graphic) design!

    You seriously wandered around a mall for several hours without a single purchase? You really need to bottle that 'resolve' and sell it....and then spend that money on more craft supplies! Sounds like a good plan to me ....
