KLM Designs....

Ok last week was truly horrible for me at work. So I'm really hopeful this week will be different or I will have to consider finding a new job. I hate drama and that seems to be what it has become. I go to work to work not to deal with everybody else's drama.

So let's start the new week off with a Thank You card. Thank You for stopping by today and leaving me a wonderful comment. It makes my day. Thank you for my husband and two daughters. You guys are the best (mostly).. :o) Thank you for my two awesome dogs who love me all the time no matter what. Oh and the cat who lets me some times give her pets. Thank you for stamps and coloring, with out them I would have no way to relax. Thank you KLM and all you other companies for having such super cute designs to work with. And lastly thank you for helping me make it through last week and giving me hope that this week will be an improvement.. :o)

Squigglefly #35....

This week's challenge over at the Squigglefly Blog is "Shaped Card with Non-Traditional Colors". So my shape is the cool flower mat I cut out with my QuiKutz Silhouette. I'm always making a round card and I just wanted to try something different, but I didn't know what to do. So I started browsing all the designs in my library and wow there are a ton of cool things in there. I guess I should use it more!!

Yes I'm sorry it's square, but I still wanted to use it. What do you think of my decorated flower? I've been seeing other people doing their flowers like that. I never would have thought to used a border punch that way. Way Cool!! You just flip the punch upside down stick your flower in, you can see where it's going to punch and punch. Easy Peesy... Hope you'll find time to join us this week!!
