Just Thinking About You

 I will be leaving Wednesday to fly out to Indiana to see Joan.  I am looking forward to spending some fun time with Joan.  I am also excited about the get together she planned for Friday so I can meet a lot of you.  I have my little project all ready.  Joan and I will be going up to Chicago on Sunday to attend CHA.  I am so excited.  I will have a few posts on my blog while I am gone.  One of the posts will be for the Joan's Gardens Weekly Challenge this week, then next week I will have a few posts for the new Heartfelt Creations July and August releases. 

For my card today I used some of the roses I created a few weeks ago.  I used the Spellbinders "Bitty Blossoms" dies.  The center of the roses were sponged with a peach ink.  The pretty flourish behind them is the Cheery Lynn "Victorian Romance Flourish.  I tucked in a few of the Cheery Lynn small leaf branches.  

The background was embossed with one of the  Sizzix "Thank You Set #5" embossing folders.  I used one of the stamps from the Heartfelt Creations "Heartfelt Expressions" stamp set for the sentiment.  I love the size of all the sentiments in this set.  To complete this card, I added a few Kaiser Craft "Bliss" pearls.

All these products can be purchased from Joan's Gardens.
