Fresh Brewed Designs Four Leaf Clover Card

Hi All! I LOVE Sundays! The only day I always know I won't have to work at the P.O.!!!
I took a little time to play today-and here is one of the cards I made. This adorable little guy is a digi image from Fresh Brewed cute he is!!! I have paper pieced him with some matching paper to the card. Added a few punched flowers, a stick on and ribbon, and a charm(which was really a set of earing that I saw at Joannes and brought home and had hubby cut off the earing part-and walllaaah-two charms!!)
Hope you all like it-it is for someone special, and I think I should make a couple more, as I have a couple more special peeps to send one too!

The Stamping Boutique/Paper Sundae Challenge

Hello! I have been such a bad blogger lately--where does the time go??? I hope to get around more this next week! I can't wait for the gal to transfer to our office--it is going to be SO NICE to have to work a little less hours! I sure hope she doesn't let her office talk her out of it!!!
Today the card I have for you is for Paper Sundae Challenge-who is this week sponsored by The Stamping Boutique. It is a sketch challenge. The image is of course from TSB and I have colored it up with my copics. The papers are from a new paper pad I found at Joannes called Flower Shower by DCWV. I added the sentiment into the image on the computer--you could add your own sentiment or leave it blank as it is in the actual image. A few flowers-and leaves, and a gorgeous shiny brad have been added too. Well, I hope you all enjoy your Sunday--hugs and smiles to ya! Rhonda
