Blooming good day...

Hey, hey, hey!

It took me a sec to realize it's Friday... working as much as I have been tends to make the days start to blur together. Still, I hope the weekend is nice so I have some sunshine to look forward to once 5pm hits. :)

Today's card is all about having a reason to play with some of the new papers and embellishments that I got on my shopping trip Monday. That little floral print is so pretty to me and I couldn't wait to cut into it. So I inked up a spring looking Pure Innocence and got busy. I know it's the second day in a row using images with a watering can but she does have an entire flower garden to tend to. ;)
And see those acrylic butterflies? I really wanted to use them on this card but at first I was a bit stumped as to how to adhere them without the glue showing. Then I spotted my tiny attacher and had that 'aha!' moment. Those tiny staples make for fun looking butterfly bodies if you ask me.

And with that I shall wrap up this post and wish you a fantabulous Friday. 
Stay classy San Diego!
