Hello and Happy Friday

Friday, April 9, 2010

Happy Friday to you.  I've got a card today with THE cutest paper ever.  I just love those little umbrellas.  Did you notice my flower frog?  Laurel uses one, although hers isn't an ugly green color and I just had to get one.  Thanks Laurel for helping me figure out what in the heck a flower frog was.

Patterned paper:  My Minds Eye Quite Contrary

Stamps:  PTI Friends til the End
Other:  Cuttlebug, PTI buttons
I'm super excited because I'm going with a few other girls from work to a crop at the Archivers about an hour away.  Can you believe I've never been to that store?  I'm super excited.  I hope that your Friday is fabulous.  As always, thanks for stopping by.  I'll see you back here for my Unscripted Sketches card.

Super cute card, Alanna! That paper IS adorable. Love your button placement, too.

I've been on the lookout for a flower frog when I go thrift store shopping, but no luck yet. I bought one at Michaels in the floral department, but when I got it home and read the info on the back, I decided not to keep it. It said you must wash your hands after handling it due to something on the frog and it made me nervous enough that I chose not to mess with it.

You could always add some ribbon around the base, or maybe a row of neutral colored buttons to dress it up. *Ü*

Oh I forgot to add...have a fabulous time at Archiver's! Which one are you going to? An hour away puts you near the one in Westminster, I'm thinking...
