New Toys!

Good morning everyone....hope you are having a great weekend!!! This has been a real quite weekend for us...our car is in the shop because of the fender bender from a couple of weeks ago and we are driving a rental pickup. It's a little Chevy Colorado super cab and I really like it!!! It's just my size and drives like a dream...my DH already said no to the idea of trading the car in on one of those cute little trucks...LOL!!! Anyway....I got some new toys last week and made a card with my new Tim Holts Alterations Sizzix Tattered Florals dies. The papers are from GCD Studios Antiquities and the sentiment is from Rubbernecker.

This is pretty simple but ohhh sooo fun!!!




This is for a few challenges:


1. Less is More - button or ribbon


2. Our Creative Corner - use B's which include black, bling, button, bows


3. Totally Gorjuss - punch or die (flower)


4. The Stamp Man Challenge Blog - anything Tim Holtz (flower die)




Thanks for visiting....have a wonderful Sunday!!!!

It's a beauty, Joan. How nice that it was easy to make, but it doesn't look like it was. Love when that happens!
