A cheery sort of day...

Good morning friends! I'm sorry I didn't get a chance to pop in yesterday...you know how it goes sometimes, right!? But, I'm back at it today! I had a bit of fun...I picked up a recent order of new goods, from dear Ellen on Friday. I have to tell you, love that girl! She is so fun! She is sweet, caring and she makes my kids feel so good! My little 4 year old Ruby said, "oh, mom! I love coming here!" when we pulled into the parking lot of Ellen's store...the whole bit makes my heart happy!!

So, I had to bust out some of my new paper...I LOVE polkas, those of you that have been around a while know that...right!? So, you won't be at all surprised at my LOVE for this Echo Park Dots and Stripes paper! The colors are delicious, the patterns to die for...it's perfection in a 6x6 pack!

 I chose to use my Rosie Posie stamps from PTI. I LOVE that stamp set! I think these will be some of my most well loved floral stamps! They are just perfect--not to mention the fact that the coordinating dies always make things so much easier!! The sentiment is from the Hello Friend stamp set. So, I pulled out some Pure Poppy, Aqua Mist and Simply Chartreuse ink from PTI, and Crushed Curry ink from SU. Can we say that this combination of colors makes me happy!? And that paper...such happiness inside!!  I also used my Mat Stack 4, Circle border and Banner Builder dies.

I used Karen Giron's Sweet Sunday Sketch #154 for my layout. I always love her sketches, I don't always post to her site/thus playing along with the challenge...but I know if I'm in a rut and need some inspiration, Karen's SSS always get me out of that rut! I am a huge fan of her work..she really rocks! I'm happy to be able to play along with her challenge this week!

I hope you have a great day!! We did get a chance to still a few moments of joy out on the trampoline yesterday, my little Max was in pure heaven outside...he stands at the sliding door with his head pressed against the glass just waiting for the rain to stop...here's hoping to a little burst of sunshine to head our way!

Take care and see you soon! Make it great!

Wonderful cheery card. I came here from the PTI forum--of course!! you are welcome to post in that thread. That's what it is there for, so those of us browsing can take a peek at what you've done.
