January Anything Goes Swap to Jo

Happy Thursday!!! Hope your week is whizzing by as we head into a LONG weekend. YAY!!!

Before February is over, I want to share this cheery and flowery card I made for my January card swap partner, Jo over in England. Oh dear, I think the postal service must be short-handed as it too 5 weeks to get to her. I'm just happy she received it.

When I saw the flower pot Spellbinder dies at Island Scrapbooking (IS), I knew I had to add it to my collection. It comes in various sizes....so cool yah? And me being a lover of dots, couldn't resist the DP by Reminisce, also from IS. Ohh, and rummaged thru my DPs and found a coordinating stripe DP by Stampin' Up. To add focus on the "smiley flowers" I added the circle and large scallop die cuts by Spellbinder.


Other supplies: Flower punch by Marvy, Distress Ink, leaf punch by Martha Stewart, smile stickers (sorry, I tossed the label), bee brad by Eyelit Outlet, ribbon by Offray, and black Dew Drops (RAK).

Thanks for stopping by and have a happy and crafy evening.
