Thank you bunches!

Hip-hip-HOORAY!!! it's ALOHA Friday!! oh yes, i've been waiting for this day.... the weekend infact... our Maui fair began yesterday and i'm so looking forward to some yummy for my tummy.... hehehe!! deep fried oreos... YUMMMM-MY!

i'm going MIA this weekend, but i had to leave you with something cheerful! i was determined to make some thank you cards last week in less than 12 hours to be sent to some wonderful ladies... and with a time limit, here is what i likey?!? i know i do... wanted to keep it simple as much as possible so i could finish in time but sometimes that doesn't always work... although it does look simple, it was sorta labor intensive (can you say "up all night", LOL)... lots of cutting, punching and putting together... overall, i'm very happy with the outcome (made it all in time too) and even more happy to hear that the recipients liked it... that always puts a smile on my face...

back to the card... after prepping all the pieces, i adhered just the edges of the pot (sides and bottom, not the top) to the layered oval to form a pocket... punched out a bunch of MS daisies that are layered over a toothpick... this helps to stick the flowers in the pot and give it height to your preference... punched out a bunch of MS leaves too to make the pot look full... and rhinestone middles for some bling... the background CS was embossed with sizzix's flower bursts embossing folder (i might be wrong on the name)... and the DPs are from 3bugsinarug's Chloe line (told you i stocked up on those)... the flower pot die is a wonderful SB to have and comes in 5 different sizes (i LOVE it)... i just added this SB to my collection and already have more ideas on using them.... =D

since the flowers are removable, you could probably recycle it for other projects or even use it as cupcake toppers... or be like me and probably hoard the whole thing away in my collection container... hehe!

alrighty.... don't think i'll last another hour crafting so i'm going to call it a night... i'll be back sun/mon here on my blog but in the mean time i'll be by to check out your creations when i can sneak in some comp time... gonna enjoy the fair, get some crafting done and hopefully be able to share more creations with you next week... so until then... have a fantastic weekend, be safe and i'll see yah soon!
