Trendy Flowers

I can't believe I haven't posted in so long. Well I guess I can believe it. It has been insane around my house these past 2 weeks! My kids have had so many doctor and specialist appointments! Plus I have been doing my classroom observations for school. I have been running around all day and sleeping like a rock all night. No stamping time for me :( The card I have today, I actually made nearly 3 weeks ago and it just took this long to get it photographed and posted. But I love the card so I think it is worth the wait!

Everyone has been making various versions of these little paper flowers and so I had to try it out myself! I am in love! You can expect to see more of these bad boys!!!! I made mine using patterned paper from SU! and 4 different sized circle punches. Then I just crumpled the paper really good and then stuck them together with a brad in the center. I added a cute button for some decoration but you could just leave it with the brad. I also added some leaves with my oval punch. Here is a close up.....

I love the curvy look of my sentiment. It is a set new to me from the SU! mini catalog.

Hope you all have a great weekend! I am looking foward to some down time. Maybe even some stamp time!
