Time for Sunflowers

Hello & Happy Monday, friends!

Hope everyone had a great weekend!

Last evening was the closing ceremony for the Rio Olympics. We were glued to the tv for 2.5 hours watching. At the end I felt like I was watching a Las Vegas show....the colors and outfits were very vivid & bright and just amazing! My favorite part was when they put out the flame in the cauldron and announced the Rio games were over.
Rio, you did a fantastic job representing your beautiful should be so proud!

So today I have a quick card to share with you.
 It reminds me of Fall with the pretty sunflowers on it.
Take a look.

I started my card with making the tag from the Two Tags Bigz Die and stamped it with a Woodgrain background stamp in Crumb Cake ink. I stamped my sentiment from the new Thoughtful Branches stamp set which by the way....I love that set & matching dies! The sunflowers are from a Great Impressions stamp that I have had for many years. I colored my image with Copic Markers and on my flowers I added some Clear Wink of Stella for a bit of sparkle because everyone likes sparkle! I added a little bow with some Linen Thread. The cardbase is Chocolate Chip with a layer of Crushed Curry that was run thru the Cuttlebug with the Decorative Dots Embossing Folder. I am really loving this card and those pretty sunflowers! Reminds me that Fall is not so far off.


My thoughts for today....

That's right!

Well, that is all I have for today!
Off to make a pan of lasanga for supper then headed out for an evening bike ride with my hubby! The weather is beautiful! Can't wait!

Thanks for stopping by & have a terrific day!

Sunflowers are so pretty but placed on a wood grain background makes them even prettier! the vivid colors remind me of those crisp autumn days just around the corner and I'm so ready! Enjoy your bike ride and that lasagna - what a great combination :)
