A Little Creating Time

Because I was cancelled yesterday, I got to play instead.
Impression Obsession has a new challenge going - Happy Flowers!
So I made a card or two.
Todays card features their Hollyhock die169R
I used a Sizzix embossing folder to get the textured background, which was also distressed
A little bling and pears on the flowers.
Looks like a pretty garden to me!  I love these flowers.  

I also follow Darnell's blog and she has a NBUS (never before used schtuff) challenge .  Her blog is always a fun read and very entertaining if you get a chance to go there!
My never used stuff would be the Sizzix embossing folder.

A bonus today, is a layout of Nic.  Last weekend I was perusing my Silhouette library and came across this background and decided it would make a quick and easy layout.  And it did.  But talk about getting distracted easily.
The yellow cloud paper is from Bella Blvd.
The background was cut on the Silhouette, circles, words, hears and stars all in one piece .
I added a few decorative brads.  The Fancy Pants glitter words. And it was done lickity split.
Once again staffing had problems this morning.  I got up and called the unit.  They said I needed to come in and so I did.  They still had this extra person to go to peds, but that didn't work out and therefore I left.  But I did renew my BLS while I was there.  A good thing to get out of the way.  Cloudy and overcast with rain predicted.

Great card and such a sweet layout.
I think they need to hire a new person for scheduling your work times, they are always changing them on you at the last second…crazy

Ah, what memories your beautiful card evokes in me, Leslee! We may have talked about this before. We had hollyhocks one place we lived as kids and my sisters and I would make dolls out of the flowers. They were so pretty and so is your card! Your layout is fabulous, too! Thank you so much for your kind words and for playing in my NBUS Challenge #4!! Hugs, Darnell
