You Make My Flowers Bloom!

Happy Tuesday, Friends! I'm back with a creation for this month's TCP Tuesday Challenge. The challenge this month is Flowers. There is still time to play, so be sure to head on over to Alma's blog for all of the details.
Time seems to be just flying by...I'm getting old...lol!  We have eight full weeks of school left, so I have been very busy with my children (my own and all of the sweeties at school) and all kinds of different activies.  It was so nice to sit down this past week and create this card.  Card making is so relaxing for me and that is just what I need right now!
It may be hard to tell in the photograph, but to make the polka dotted blossoms on this card, I used the TCP Flower Button CutUps to create a stencil with the black layer and then I put a layer of the polka dotted paper behind the stencil.  I added some red flower die cuts and buttons to each blossom.  My other accents include the a die cut made with the Queen of Hearts CutUps and the sentiment from the TCP Bloom set. 
Thank you so much for visiting with me today.  I hope that spring has sprung in your area!  Until next time...Toodles!  :D

TCP Tuesday!!!

Hello Friends!  Spring has sprung here in New England and this month's challenge from The Cat's Pajamas is FLOWERS!  To play along, please head over to Alma's Blog for the link. 
I paired some of the sayings from the newly released Words of Love set with the Sunflower Rosette CutUps from The Cat's Pajamas.  I used some polka dotted paper from Jillibean Soup and the card stock is from scraps.  The sentiment is stamped with Memento ink.  My other accents include brown buttons with craft thread, a few different sized pearls, and some machine stitching.   
My heart is full and my mind is still trying to put together all of the events that have happened in the last week here in the Boston area.  I'm not an eloquent writer when it comes to things that touch me on such an emotional level.  I wish that I could write more, but I am just not able to.  With that being said, I will continue to pray because that's what I do and that is what helps me the most.  Thank you for stopping by for a visit.  Have a beautiful day!  Until next time...Toodles!  :D
