Do a {funky} dance!

A funky NATURE dance that is! Coming to you live today from crazy town! Yes, it's true this prisoner of "crazy" escaped last night long enough to make a card for my friend's upcoming birthday...which happens to be the perfect excuse to break open the awesome Funky Nature stamps from My Cute Stamps and some new Cherry Hill paper I picked up.

The color palette came from the American Crafts ribbon! Isn't it cute? And, it made quick friends with the Cherry Hill paper.

I needed a "new" way to tie on a button so I just knotted my floss and put the knot on the front instead of hiding on the back. Fun AND funky right? This bloom also was double stamped, first with yellow and then with regal rose giving it a fun multi colored look. I love that the stems and blooms are separate in this set so you can mix and match them!

The small flower blooms in the stamp set looked great stamped in mauve at the bottom of the DP and the bold wild wasabi green stems contrast perfectly with the small print of the Cherry Hill paper. Did I mention this stamp set is a steal? Unreal! Holly knows how to make a crafty girl's heart sing...amazing images at a price that doesn't force you to can just get 'em all! ;)

What? A button?! Shocker!!! hee hee Just fulfilling my button quota for the day. They are quite charming as flowers aren't they?

Oh and remember these from a couple posts ago?

The tutorial is now up over at the Hybrid Chick blog. I hope you can check it out. Be sure and help yourself to loads of hybrid goodness over there from all of the THC creative team. They are amazing!

Hope you enjoyed your crafty break and hope there will be more for you. May you enjoy the little things that make you smile. :> (And you don't have to do a darn thing to make me smile....maybe just play a little Pictionary ;-> lol) :>
