Flowers for Mom - CK #83

Hi my friends, and happy Thursday.  Well, for me and a lot of you, it's like Friday since tomorrow is Good Friday and a holiday!  So nice to get a 3-day work week.  I could use it to rest up a bit. I came down with I guess an allergy attack. Started out with the scratchy throat, then the sore throat and low grade fever, and then the runny nose.  That's the worst when your nose drips constantly like a leaky faucet. At least it seems to be running its course pretty quickly, so hopefully I'll be over it by the weekend.

Got Easter plans?  My sis is having all the family over to her house so I just have to fix something to take.

I'm getting a little ahead of myself with my card this week for Creative Knockouts. It's more for Mother's Day, but I guess the little guy could be taking flowers to Mom for Easter. It is Spring you know!

Our theme is Die Cut/Punch Frenzy, so let's see those die cuts and/or punches on your cards. Here is my card.

  1. Another totally adorable card, Maggie! You're really on a roll lately. Love these colors. Kind of cute and boyish, yet all dressed up for Mom. Really darling image with great coloring. A friend of mine developed severe allergies recently and she suffers miserably from them, so I can imagine how you're feeling. So sorry to hear that. At least you'll have a little time off work. I've never known Good Friday to be a work holiday around here. Enjoy your three day weekend!
