Special Day

This is my post on the
Dies R Us blog today...
I would love to have you stop by and
leave a comment...thank you!!

Hello there my Dies R Us Friends!
Diane with you on this sunny and happy Thursday...
I hope you are having  a great day as well!!

With Mother's Day being so close
I thought I would create a card any Mom would love to receive!
I also wanted a fun shape and created a circle card.
I love all my dies, but I have a few very favorite dies
and one happens to be the Cheery Lynn Designs French Pastry Doily die.
I remember when this die came out how excited I was to be able
to cut an exquisite doily in any color I wanted!
This is the die I used today to "build" my card on!

I made a few Roses using Spellbinders Spiral Blossom Four.
I colored these with PanPastels, and brushed on glitter.

The leaves under the Roses are from 
I also added a bit of white "greenery using 

Another of my favorite dies I purchased recently is the
these I tucked in with the Roses.

I finished with a sentiment stamped on my new, 
all time favorite die Memory Box Stitched Circle Layers.
I can't say enough good things about this set,
it is fabulous!!

Don't forget we have a challenge blog you can 
join in with us and have a chance to win a gift certificate to the store.....
hope to see there!!
