Sunflower...Makes Me Smile

It's Aloha Friday, no work till Monday, do do be dooo, do do be do be do be do be dooo.   Woo-hoo.  OK, I know all you people in Hawaii know that song.   They always play it on the radio on Fridays.  I bet this song will be playing in your head now.....hee-hee.....it's playing in mine. 

When I was on Oahu last week, I got to squeeze in some craft shopping and during the VERY SHORT time I was at Cute Stuff, I heard someone call my name in a questioning tone.  I turned and it was my calabash cuz, Jeri.  OMG, what a surprise.   And she had just bought this sunflower die by Cheery Lynn for me.   Isn't she so thoughtful?  Thanks Jeri.   I knew immediately what I'd do with it thinking it would go perfectly with the flower pot dies by Spellbinder that I got from Island Scrapbooking.  So I sent this card to her with a couple of RAKs.  Can you see the tag hanging from the flower?  It's actually a jewelry tag that I stamped with this itty-bitty "thank you" stamp.  Then added some teeny-tiny flower stickers.  


Other supplies:  Picot Edge Circle die by Spellbinder, leaf die by Cheery Lynn from
J's Knicknacks (actually, there are 3 leaves all attached but I cut them for this card) , DP by K & Co., flower stem is a lace by Creez Decorez that I got at a garage sale (what a deal), bee brad by Eyelit Outlet, butterfly punch by Martha Stewart, Distress ink, and pearls by Kaiser Crafts.

Thanks for stopping by.   Hope you all have a WONDERFUL and crafty weekend.
