CCEE1921: Use a die!

 Hi friends!  

Thankfully, school is almost out and I could not be more grateful for summer :)
As soon as I rise, it's go-go-go with last semester drama shows,
scout events, church and volunteer work ...
and a wee little grand-daughter that loves her "Oma" so very much
that captives so much of my attention each day! ♥
Most nights, I stiffle a yawn and rub my eyes like a tired babe
and finally fall fast and soundly asleep the minute my head hits the pillow!

Somewhere in between all of this, I try to make a card :)

Today's card is for the CCEE Stampers newest challenge:  Use a die!
Frances is our hostess and states most of her card creations
are rarely without using some sort of die cut on her cards.
 This week, she wants us to create a card using a die somewhere on it.

Easy peasy!

 For my floral card today, I've used two!
I love flower images previously signed up 
for the Technique Tuesday Greenhouse Society stamp and die collection.
It's a fun, monthly stamp program and it's like getting a surprise each month!
and I just adored this one.

Meadow Flowers
 The two dies that I've used are the MFT Stitched Rectangle dies
The beautiful Meadow Flowers does have a matching die,
but this one isn't using a die :) 
I've colored this with my Zig Markers and Signo White pen
and one of my favorite parts of this card:  The big dot embossing folder.

Thank you for your sweet and wonderful words you leave on my blog,
and sharing this creative connection with each of you really warms my heart!
