Sunny Day and Sunflowers

Today was SOS (Sisterhood of Scrappers) at Paradise Scrapbook Boutique it's always a fun day with people who share the love of paper. Yesterday while my computer was updating to Windows 7, I cut the sunflowers from my newest Spellbinder Die - Sunflower Set Two. At the time I was cutting, I really had no plan, other than to use up some of my scraps. Today I packed up my craft bag and threw the sunflowers in, just in case I had time to work on them. Not only did I find the time, this card is the only thing I did today. OK....not the only thing, we chatted and laughed and shared our projects with the others. Everyone was busy working on albums, while I struggled (and yes, I do mean struggled...with this card. When I finished....I gotta say....I love it.
Karen shared a doily that she had, it was a bit big, so I cut it to size and seamed it with the ribbon. A perfect addition....thanks Karen! The papers were all purchased from her shop the flowers are all scraps from Bo Bunny. I don't remember the name of the stripe paper, of course I cut off the title strip....and now I can't find it. The ribbon and butterfly are also from Paradise Scrapbook Boutique. The sentiment is from a stamp by Annette Allen Watkins. The flowers and the edges of the papers were all chalked using Color Box - Pumpkin.
That's it for now.....Enjoy the card. Tomorrow I'll be trying to figure out why my scanner won't work with Windows 7 and I'm going to install the newest version of Funtime for my Gazelle. Keep your fingers crossed....I'm not very good at this technical stuff....I just want it to work, I don't care how it works (Sorry all you tech folks....but think of it this way...I'll keep you all employed!)
Have a wonderful week! It's supposed to be 100 plus by Thursday....a great time to stay inside and play with paper!
See you later!
