Happy Labor Day

Hope you all have fun plans for the day. Last night Jim and I decided to go for a walk, and of course it started raining as soon as we left the house, but it wasn't lightening or thundering, so we kept walking. We walked 3 miles in the rain, came to our street, which is a dirt road, and took off our shoes and walked in the mud the rest of the way home, it was good to feel the mud squish between my toes! lol It has been a long time since I've done a "mud walk" as the girls would call them! We came home soaked to the bone, but what a refreshing walk!

Here is the recipe for the card. Sparkle n Sprinkle needed some cards for the flocking, so this is one of mine.


Chrysanthemum Circle 0293-181C

Chinese Hope 0542-181A

Chinese Love 0156-181AA

Just Because 1175-160AA

Tall Posies 0300-181E


Pink, Rose, Blue, Designer paper, White

Ink: Blue, Versa Mark 99702


Azure Flocking FL01

Stickem Powder EP175


Glue Dots

Button and thread



Enveloper 99226

¼” double sided tape SAT 01


  1. Cut pink cardstock to 5 ¼ x 10 ½ and fold in half for card base. Cut designer paper to 2 ¼ x 3 ¾ and 2 ½ x 4 7/16. Cut blue to ¼ larger. Cut pink sq to 2 ¼”, and rose to 2 ½”, and on rose to ¾ x 3 ¾ for sentiment.
  2. Stamp Chrysanthemum on white cardstock with versamark and sprinkle with Stickem Powder, tap off excess. Heat just until it turns glossy, immediately dump flocking on and press. Tap off excess and head again to set flocking in powder.
  3. Cut flower with Nestibilities and mount with dimensionals on pink, then layer on rose.
  4. Stamp symbols on side of DSP with Blue ink. Stamp verse with blue ink on Rose strip. Tie thread through button and attach with Glue dot.
  5. Assemble card as shown.

  2. Stamp Tall Posies on front of card with blue ink.

Thanks for stopping by,
