....bits of loveliness all over this card....maybe it's overwhelming, but I don't care. It's World Card Making Day, and darn it, I wanted to share a card that makes me happy, even if it's too much for others. ;)
So anyways, a very happy WCMD to you!!

Heat embossed sentiment...I stamped this sentiment SO many times, in so many different ink color combos, that when I finally decided on the combo I wanted, I was too lazy to heat emboss it right. Yeah, even for a big hop-a-roo such as this. ;)

A yummy flower from Vio, and some little gem droplets from Theresa - a thing I love about papercrafters - so sweet and generous! I have many papercrafting buddies and companies to thank for a very large portion of my crafty stash, supporting me through their kind words and actual product. :)

I mainly made this card with this bloomer in mind....I love these things, and I have a nice little stash of them, but I don't use them often enough...

So that's my little post for today! I'm actually typing this up the night before (typical procrastination), but I wanted to have a little something ready. I was also planning on doing a giveaway, and taking a very delicious photo to tempt you all in to entering, but alas, I do not have such a photo lol. However, I'm still going to have a little giveaway - it'll include bits and pieces of the things I love to craft with best (which will probably include some of those neglected bloomers ;)) in honor of WCMD. Just leave a comment - if you follow me, leave another comment for another chance.

Thanks SO much for stopping in today and have a blessed (and very crafty!) weekend!
