If all goes as planned.. we will be enjoying the Adventure of the Seas in the Caribbean as you read this.. I've got blog posts set up to post while we are gone….  I'm looking forward to sharing our cruise photos with you as soon as I return!

Continuing on with the samples from my Hugs & Kisses notes class last week.. here is the 3rd card we made:


This card idea was based on a card I received from Carrie Cudney at Stampin' Up!  Thanks for the inspiration, Carrie !! 🙂

The flower center is really fun…  it's a CLEAR BUTTON (item 105447, pg 181 in the Stampin' Up! catalog), over a 1" circle punched from So Saffron cardstock.  I cut off the legs of the Real Red Epoxy Brad (item # 117270) with my Craft & Rubber Scissors and used a jumbo glue dot to adhere it to the clear button.  Cute, huh?

The Kisses Note features a greeting from the stamp set "On a Pedestal" – it's my favorite greeting right now 🙂

Both the Real Red Fancy Flower punch and the Hugs note are stamped with the A to Z "a la carte" single stamp on pg 42 of the Occasions mini catalog in Going Gray.

And here is a fun tip…. the leaves are punched from the Extra Large Two-Step Bird punch… the leaves are the WINGS from that punch 🙂  (item 117191, pg 11 of the Occasions Mini catalog).
