Hope

Hello!  It's been a beautiful rainy misty day here and my little one took the longest nap of her life. :) Oh, and I also got to make this card.  I think it goes without saying...but I'll say it anyway...today's been a great day! :) This week's Simon Says: Die Crazy Challenge is featuring WPlus9, so I decided to pair that challenge with WPlus9's Throwback Thursday #7.  I really wanted a twig wreath, which I don't have, so I built the wreath by stamping the berry twig in WPlus9's Fresh Cut Florals a bunch of times.  I fussy cut my homemade wreath, but then I die cut and stamped a few of the flowers and leaves in the set.  The sentiment is from WPlus9's Pretty Patches: Christmas set.  It always makes me happy when I can use a holiday stamp set for a completely different occasion.  I wish I could giant size this wreath and hang it on my front door.  Hope your week has started out to be a good one!
