I've got a real simple card for you today but I love how it turned out.  I'm enjoying making these flowers with bookprint.  I also got out the sewing machine to do a bit of stitching on this one.  And I love this paper.  So pretty.
Patterned Paper:  PTI Green Tea Leaves

Other:  Fiskars border punch, rub on from my stash, PTI button and bookprint

Devin is leaving this morning for a week in California.  I suprised him with a trip to see his best friend out there for Father's Day.  I thought that he might like to have a week away from kids and responsibilities.  So it will just be me and Christopher for a week.  I think that will be the first time that's ever happened so it should be good for the two of us.  He can get more of his mama's attention. 

I'm happy that it's Thursday and closer to the weekend.  I hope that you all have a wonderful day.

This is a lovely card! From the flower to the paper to the stitching, just beautiful!

What is also lovely is that you gave Devin such a wonderful gift for Father's Day! I'm sure he appreciates it so much! Enjoy your time with your son. *Ü*

Your card is gorgeous, Alanna! I love all of the things you do.

Your Father's Day gift was wonderful. What a nice gesture. And I'll bet your time alone with Christopher will be wonderful, too. I still love one-on-one time with my boys.

Have a good Friday and a great weekend, friend!
