Friends and Flowers



Followers of Dawn McVey have been making her cute poofy flowers, and since I have a scalloped circle punch and tons of brads, I decided to make some, too. I used my pack of Jenni Bowlin papers and could punch out 4 circles from one sheet. Boy, are they fun to make! Now to decide how to use them....

I attached one to this card. My daughter thought it looked "neat". I think the size competes with the image.

The little Ketto image was sent to me by Jo, all the way from the UK! I've always wanted to own some Ketto stamps, and didn't realize they were so tiny, which makes for super quick coloring. Thank you, Jo!

Hope you're all off to a great week!
