A Thank You Card to my Sweet Cuz for an Awesome RAK

Hey Peeps!  Hope you all had a fabulous weekend.    

Last week my sweet cuz surprised me again with a RAK.  OMGosh, I can't tell you how happy I was to find the "Flower Girls Set" by Dandelion Design in the package.  She knows me so well.   I actually saw a card made by a fellow blogger and added it to my wish list.  Then I found it on sale on a website and was going to order it but I got distracted.  Oh, how great was that because next thing I knew, it popped up in the mail.    They are dang cute and the perfect size.  My mojo is spinning with ideas now.  THANKS CUZ!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Here's the CAS thank you card I sent to her.  

Crafty ingredients used for this card:
Washi paper from Japan
Butterfly die (large) by C.C. Designs
Butterfly punch (small) by EK
"Thank you" laser cut sentiment from Island Scrapbooking
Spellbinder dies
Pearls by Kaiser Craft

And here's the stamp set.  Aren't they the cutest??????  I love 'em all.

On to my weekend.   I finally got to take my dear friend out for her birthday.  We were supposed to go last month but since she wasn't feeling well, we postponed till yesterday.  At first she chose New China for the buffet but later decided she felt like eating soba noodles so we had lunch at Miyo's.   We are both "noodle" people and ordered the Soba with Tempura (Shrimp and Vegetable Tempura).   Ummm, was that GOOD.   Gee, I think I could've eaten two of these.  Hee-hee....oink.

My friend is an amazing gardener too.  Look at the gorgeous dahlias she grew and shared with me.  Some of them are HUGE too.  WOW!!!

 I'm entering the card in the following challenges:
Challenges 4 Everybody - "Challenge 30 - Anything Goes"
2 Sisters Challenge - "Challenge 163 - Anything Goes"
Crafts 4 Eternity - "Recipe 143 - Anything Goes"
A.R.T. Card Challenge - "#16 - Anything Goes"

Thanks for stopping by.  Hope you HAVE A SCRAP HAPPY DAY!!!

I like the Dandelion Design stamp set that your cousin surprised you with. What a cute set! I purchased the set when it was released, but have not inked it up yet. Seeing your cute card is making me want to find my set and get started on making some fun cards. I look forward to seeing more cards that you make with the set.

The soba and tempura that you enjoyed when you went out with your friend is making my mouth water even though I just ate lunch. LOL! I haven't had soba for while.
The flowers that she gave to you are beautiful.
