Hello Sunshine

Hello! Happy Tuesday! Hope you are having a fabulous week so far— it’s pretty quiet around here at the moment. I’m trying to keep busy, but some days seem to drag by while Kevin is at work. I have been laid off form my job since December 8th, and I’m going back soon, so there won’t be too many more super quiet days like this. So I suppose I should just enjoy them, right? :) 

I’ve been sketching out different plans for my cut flower garden that I want to plant once it gets warm enough. I need to probably pre-sprout some of my seeds soon! It’s so exciting to think about having my own flowers. I will have to post on that later, because lately I’ve been obsessed with anything flower garden related, so I could fill up this whole post with flower talk! Haha! By the way, what flowers are your favorites to grow that aren’t hard to take care of? I’d love to know!


Anyways, here’s a card that I made for my sister. I was sending her a little happy package and while I was making this card, I thought it was perfect to send to her. 

I used the older Bella Blvd/ Illustrated Faith “She Blooms” collection for this card. I had bought a collection kit from Hobby Lobby from this line and hadn’t touched much of it, so I got it out and played with it a bit. Lately, I’ve been trying to revitalize my older stash and use it up because hey— I bought it for a reason: I liked it! :)

I used a couple of different sized circle punches to make some circles to sprinkle across my card and then used some images trimmed out of the cut-apart journaling cards to embellish the card. 

I’m still into ink splatters and machine stitching, so I finished off the card with those two things. This card is so FLAT, but I still love it! 

What's your go-to technique that you do on all of your projects?
