I think this card can be used in this months' Hero Arts contest as the theme is Sunshine and Showers and my  card is sunshiny (a word?)!  So, a flowery Springy card for you today it is.

Paper: cardstock (PTI); Neenah; designer paper (Lawn Fawn - Bright Side)
Ink: various distress inks; Versafine Onyx Black; versamark
Stamps: Hero Arts (S5507 - Envelope Pattern; CG247 - Edged Fabric with Flowers; CG270 - Flower Bird Garden; CL381 - Sentiment)
Other: corner rounder; twine (PTI); heart punch (EK Success); brads; paper flowers

The notecard is stamped with the Envelope Pattern and heat embossed with white embossing powder.  The Flower Bird Garden is clear embossed on white cardstock and coloured with sponge daubers and various distress inks.  The little heart was punched out of some cardstock on which I had stamped the Edged Fabric with Flowers with some HA chalk ink.

On a slightly different note and because I love to find ways to support good, honest, genuine and talented people....our (Lisa & I) personal trainer at 24Fitness, Cooper Wade, we found out, is also a Country Music singer!  And today, his new single, "You and Me on a Beach Towel" just released on iTunes.  So, for those of you who like country and love to support new found talent, you can go HERE to take a listen.  He is good!

Have a fabulous day!
