Happy spring friday!

Hi all! Just a quickie Friday post with a little something for spring. I think there is nothing prettier than the addition of a flower to a card. Sooooo simple too. If you keep your eye out, you can find great deals out there on silk flowers and you can pull apart the layers to make them even more economical if needed.

For these two cards, I left the blooms layered and just replaced the plastic stem holder thingy with a clear button from SU!. I stamped a thank you sentiment in black staz on ink onto the button to customize it a bit. I love this trick and need to make a mental note to do it more often. Another note about these simple cards...the papers are from a DCWV Summer Stack from a couple seasons ago. In a printed paper pack, there are hardly any coordinating decisions to make since the colors are usually coordinated for you! Sometimes I really NEED no decision making in my life (LOL!) so easy matching sounds good to me.
Have a great weekend,peeps! And here's hoping the easter bunny brings you lots of peeps...or whatever your favorite easter candy delight is :)
Ink: staz on
Paper: DCWV
Stamps and buttons: SU!
Other: Ribbon, silk flowers and craft wire

Well HELLO! Those lovelies are truly fabulous! May I just say that seeing that VERY old S/U! SAB stamp used so delightfully in the middle of the flower is SO EXCITING! I want to dig through my HUMONGOUS stack of sets to sell to see if I still have that one just in case! What a fantastic showcase for that old soldier! I feel like singing the song from Alice in Wonderland about all the flowers.. but I can't remember the words. Thanks for the spring jolt!
