Luscious Mini Card

Hello!  Happy Thursday!  I am very much enjoying a day at home!  I love being out and about but being home is also great!  The fact that beyond freezing cold weather has come helps me want to stay home!   This morning I've been catching up on laundry and crafting!  I hope to bake a bit this afternoon I am in the baking mood, I think I'll whip up some oatmeal coconut chocolate chip cookies!

I want to share some exciting news I had a card picked up in the June 2012 issue of CARDS!  Yay beyond exciting!  I was a bit lazy and truly waited to the last day to submit which was Jan 1st which was also the day I was super sick with the stomach flu.  Boy was I kicking myself!  Around 1 oclock when I wasn't feeling any better and I realized that I may not be able to get the energy to submit I looked at my hubby and asked him if he would do it for me that I would tell him what to type.  He said of course!  Let me tell you I was so happy!  It meant a lot to me.  Thankfully later that evening I felt better enough that I was able to do it myself, well I did have a pounding headache!  Having a card picked up after that ordeal really made it worth it!

Today I have a mini card to share.  After making one for the current Wee Memories Challenge which is mini cards I got in the mood to make another:


This card measures 3 by 3 and uses scraps for the paper and lace!  So fun to make, the hardest part was finding a sentiment that fit!  :>  I love the Hello Luscious papers and stamp set by Hero Arts!  

By the way I don't know if you noticed but I added a new profile picture, it's from our December family photo shoot:


Well I am excited to be back tomorrow as part of the Hero Arts Hostess Blog Hop!  :>

Two things I love about this card - the lace and the fact that the flower sticks out past the edges of the card. It looks great. I've really been into the mini card thing lately too, they're just so gosh darn adorable.
