Hugs

Fortunately, I don't get sick very often, but yesterday was pretty much lost as I recovered from the night before.  I'm 99% better today so had to play with my new SSS goodies--Spring Flowers & Painted Hugs.  
I made a circular shaker card to enter SSS Flickr Challenge #47. Hugs die cut is stacked 3 high & clear embossed. Simple, but fun card that can easily be mailed to a blogging friend. I'm also entering Twofers  & HLS Anything Goes with Dies.  

My hanging basket has grown like crazy & is so gorgeous this year--thought you might like to see it. Hubby picked out the perfect one!  Thanks so much for stopping by.

Shake, shake, shake, what a fun circular card. Your flowers are gorgeous! I was thinking of getting a nice bouquet of fakes for the front of my house (full sun all day and 110 + temps probably mean any real ones won't last an hour).

Kim Heggins said...

Oh No....so sorry to hear you were not feeling well. But from the looks of your fabulous card you must be on the mend. Take it easy!

Glad to hear you are feeling better today, and was able to do some crafting. That is one sparkling shaker card too. The glitter at the base certainly shines. Love the shine of the stamped flower (looks very silvery) and the dimension of the hugs die. The hanging basket is gorgeous. TFS & have a good wkend. Hugs

Aww! Hugs back to ya, Greta! Happy to hear you're feeling better. I've never made a shaker card but you've piqued my interest! Your card is very elegant + heartfelt. I like how you've stacked the word "hugs" to make it more dimensional. Thank you for sharing! Take care.
