Hey there blogland!  We are smack dab in the middle of a wonderful weekend at HOME and I'm loving it!  It's been so long since we had a nice, quiet weekend at our house and I have to say it's been lovely!  =)  Not only did I get a bunch of housework done, but I also had LOTS of time this morning to craft!  =D

I was so excited to use this new stamp set from PTI that I recently bought.  It's not a newly released set, but it's new to me and I love LOVE ladybugs!  Anyway, here's my card:
I am really happy with how this card turned out!  I just love LOVE this sentiment, it's so true that you have to stop and enjoy the little joys  in life, like having a weekend at home!  =) 
All of these papers came from my box of scraps, which I am trying to use up!  This was convenient since Tuesday Throwdown's challenge this week was scraps!  =) 
Speaking of inspiration, this card was inspired by the following challenges:
1. Card Patterns #106 Sketch
2. Tuesday Throwdown #39 - Use Scraps in/on your project
3. Etsy Inspired Challenge #130 - Artwork by Lori/The Royal Bead Shop.  I was inspired by this awesome piece of jewelry to add the flowers to this project:
    Black & Red poppy reclaimed leather flower hair clip by Lori Ramotar theroyalbead
Well, I hope that everyone is having a great weekend!  Stay tuned tomorrow for the DeNami March Blog Hop!  It's sure to be a good one!!!!  =D
