Many Thanks Sunflower Bunny

Coffee of the Day - Pumpkin Spice (yep, again!)

I have been one busy little bee behind the scenes, making things for the upcoming hops as well as a guest designer gig. but I figured it was high time I made something just for 'funsies' that I could post and share with all of you NOW! :) not to mention that I needed a thank you card to mail out.

I have been digging through my digital files to actually use some of these wonderful images I have had for a while. One such image is here on today's card. it's by Digital Delights by Louby Loo and called 'Flowering Bertie.' I colored the flower to look like a sunflower. papers are from the Basic Grey Indian Summer collection, leaves are by Prima, dies are Spellbinder, orange ribbon is SU!, sentiment sticker is by SRM Stickers (sorry about the glare - it's  not like that irl), and buttons are from my vintage stash. I'm not sure who makes the golden burlap twine, as I bought it on Etsy.

the sunflower center on the image was covered in distress stickles, as was the edge of that die. I added a few border dots with my white gel pen. oh yes, if you look VERY closely, you will see an itty bitty brass acorn charm hanging from the bow. :)

Hope your week is off to a grand start!

Bwahahahaha, I saw the coffee hop this morning and I immediately thought of you and OF COURSE, you'll be there...LOL. Hi Jennifer!!!!!! My grandma is visiting us this week and I haven't had too much time to come visit people and I finally got a chance this morning and wanted to come tell you thank you for your very sweet comments on my halloweeny makes. It feels so good to be on your blog again and see what you're up to. Your thank you card is wonderful! Of course I'm partial to the sunflower being a Kansas girl and all. So, awesome choice there ;) And that freaking tiny acorn charm...adorable!!
Big hugs to you,
Lisa x
