Bloom and Grow

vlvjulyweek5

Good morning and happy Friday!  I got some happy mail this week with some new Studio Calico and My Mind’s Eye papers :)  So it was fun to see Diva Andrea’s lovely Viva La Verve CAS sketch and then flip through the pads to pick the perfect paper :)  I’ve been giving the Loopy Blooms stamps and dies a whole lotta lovin’ lately and continued the lovefest with today’s card.  Isn’t that wood paper cool!?

How super cute are those blooms?! I love the papers and that bloom & grow with the button looks like a grayscale photo :) Love it (and thanks for the seam binding flower tutorial!)

Darling card. Love those loopy blooms and the graph paper over the oval is darling! Our last day of the first week in teh pool and mama is tired out LOL! Glad I have the weekend to recover before doing it all over again next week LOL! Happy Friday :)

This is just beautiful Maureen. I truly love the wood grain background and that grid tag. Your off the page design looks fantastic with this project.

You know I love a CAS sketch! And you have to love happy mail days! I love the SC papers you used with the always gorgeous loopy flowers. Did you see that SC is going to have a monthly card kit now?

I love the font of the sentiment! And the way the flowers are perfectly placed with the leaves and the buttons in the center :)

Summer holidays and happy mail - I can't wait for that to happen over here! :)
Love this soft, pretty number, Diva! That sentiment is beautiful and the visual triangle of bling is perfect-o-mondo!
Hugs!

I love to see you use these cute flowers. Such a sweet color combo, too, and the contrast with the black scalloped frame is striking!
