A Card and a Toot

Happy Monday! Hope those of you who have the day off are taking full advantage of it. I spent this morning crafting and doing a little online shopping...just using up some Papertrey gift certificates...doesn't get better than that, does it? Later I'm heading over to my SU demo's for a little SAB party. I love hanging out with crafty girls...they understand my obsession!

Today's card is for two challenges:
Kazan's sketch 44 and Little Red Wagon challenge 11--to use dots. I just love cherries, and on a cold, cloudy day like today, it gives me hope for spring!

Oh, I almost forgot...I made Top Trio over at
365 Cards this week...for this valentine. Woohoo!

Have a wonderful week!


Stamps: Everyday Button Bits, Signature Greetings (PTI)

Paper: Regal Rose, Sweet Blush

What a lovely card! The button bits stamp that you used is great (I'm going to have to order that next time I order from PTI), and the signature greetings set is quickly becoming one of my favorites, too!

Thanks so much for sharing!
