Happy Friday! Hope everyone has a fab weekend planned. If you think cleaning wood floors is fab, then I'm going to have one. Well, just a little cleaner to get off prints and spills from the little munchkins being here. That is to be expected and it won't take long to clean.

I made my card today to honor Karen aka k dunbrook on SCS as she has been crowned Queen for the Day #53. I am case-ing this card. Karen does a lot of CAS cards so I went with that.

I am using an OnyXXpressions stamp and really love it. I stamped the bloom three times, colored with Copics, and after cutting them out, I cut into the petals of my blossoms so they would curl better. I popped them on and there you have 3D flower.

Fabulous flower, Benzi and a great CAS card! Wood floors are a pain to clean but since we got a Bissel steam cleaner they are a breeze! Maybe a birthday pressie suggestion for hubby :)
