AG 3-D Flower Dies

How many of you watch HSN every time they have a craft day?  I was in VA when they had the one in July.  That didn't keep me from watching and my daughter-in-law kept encouraging me to buy "stuff".  I was pretty bad.  One of things I bought was Anna's 3-D Flower Dies.  In case you haven't noticed I love flowers.  Today, I finally got out the dies and made this card.

Card Details:
5X7 Card base - I made this card base from paper with gradient colors
Background design - embossing folder from Cuttlebug Bird Cages and Branches dies and embossing folders.
Flowers & leaves- Anna's 3-D Flower dies - cut from gradient paper

Thank you for joining me today.  I hope you're getting excited about the upcoming Blog Hop on August 1 with Graciellie Design and Paper Temptress.  I know I am.

God Bless You!!!  Peggy

Background Paper - Anna Griffin paper cut in squares and circles.  The edges were distressed and inked for dimension
Image - Rose Trio from DS4J

A2 Card Base
Background - from My Memories Suite

Blog Hop Coming Soon

Hi Everyone, I have been away for almost a month at my son & daughter-in-love's home.  While there, I helped her with her website.  She and her friend, Sharon, are opening an internet store to sell handmade pillows.  I'll tell you more about that when we get it up and running.

I have other news as well.  I have been invited to be on the Graciellie Designs Design Team.  I'm excited about this.  Gracie Chavez, the owner, has beautiful digistamps.  On August 1 & 2 we will be having 2 blog hops.  On August 1, it will be a joint effort between Graciellie Designs and Paper Temptress.  I will be involved with this one.  Gracie will be releasing some beautiful new releases.  I can't show you them yet but stay tuned for more.

Thanks for visiting today.  We'll talk later.

God Bless You!!!  Peggy
