Happy Birthday Mary!

Good Morning!  How is your week going?  Mine is really fun.  Saturday I spend shopping with Mary, Kristen, Pia and Michelle.  Next to coloring and making cards, what could be more fun than shopping!!  I keep saying I am not going to buy more paper but I came home with 3 packs of 6 x 6 and some 12 x 12.  I couldn't help it.  They are so pretty. Of course, I can't seem to shop without buying a new die and misc embellishments.  You will see some of my new purchases in the coming weeks!!

Today we have a challenge theme at Going Grey with Scrap-Creations that was so easy for me!!  We want you to make a card with Die Cuts!   I really don't know what we did without them!  I decided to use the card I made for my sister Mary's Birthday last week.  I used my memory box and spellbinder dies for her card.  The flowers I cut out and popped up to give it more dimension.

The other wonderful challenges my card fits are:
Diva's by Design - New Beginnings or Thanks

Really lovely card, purple is my favourite colour. I have the a similar paper addiction, so don't feel bad, you will be using it some time in the future right? Oh ok, maybe a few YEARS in the future because you still have so much DPs, but nevertheless......;) That's how it goes with me anyway......Thanks for playing along with our New Beginnings Challenge at Card Makin' Mamas!
