Thank heaven for fellow bloggers who share all of their great ideas! My little pocket card this evening was inspired by this awesome card on Aaron’s Booth #32 blog. And, not only did she share the idea but the template as well. Thank you, Aaron!
As I have yet to get my hot little hands on the April Stamp of the Month set, “Flower Pot,” that Aaron showcased, I opted to use another favorite, “Happiness.” I embossed my flower head with white embossing powder and then sponged it with Grey Flannel ink so the detail would show.

What’s everyone up to this week? The blogosphere seems kind of quiet. Spring fever perhaps? I think the thermometer may have hit 40 degrees here today. It’s been mild here all week with occasional rain. The snow is melting. Sunshine would be nice, too, although it isn’t forecast until next week. When I saw we switch to Daylight Savings Time again already on Sunday, I just about jumped for joy. Having an extra hour of daylight after getting home from work will be awesome. I tend to shut down once it is dark, which isn’t very conducive to getting anything done around the house in the evenings.
And, tomorrow is Friday. How sweet is that? While I’ve had a good week at work, I will be more than happy to spend a couple of days at home. With my current monitor’s pixels dying fast, we need to get the new computer up and running - “Big Bertha” printer, too … somewhere. LOL. For tonight, I’m going to go clean up my corner, so I can “start fresh” tomorrow night. Enjoy the evening! Later …
