A thank you flower

     Bet you all are starting to wonder if I've gone the way of CAS forever.  LOL  NOT!  I'm not really sure where all these CAS designs have come from cause I sure like my embellies.  I have come to realize (at least for me) that some images are better suited for the CAS route.  I think Mabelle's little cuties fall in this category.
     For this card I've used a kraft base and just two small pieces of DP.  I'm lovin' the zig zag stitch on my sewing machine.  The sketch is from Retro Sketches.
     I hope you like my simple little card.  You can find Gigi right here in the Whimsy and Stars Studio store.  Keep your eyes peeled for some W and S news, and if you missed it check out Mabelle's latest post on the W and S blog about her free digi offer with a purchase of one of her rubber stamps.
     This holiday weekend has really got me behind on commenting so I'm spending this evening catching up on what you've all been doing.  I'll be back tomorrow with a little tutorial for The Kraft Journal.
     Hugs and blessings!
