I have discovered that life is a roller coaster and I'm learning to enjoy the ride! I am a married mom of 4. I work part-time outside of the home and, of course, more that full time as a wife and mother! I do classes from my craft room in the basement...which is why we call it the "Craft Cave."

Dahlia card

Here is my version of the Dahlia card. I first found this on Vicki Hook's blog. I took a page from the Rockin' Roxie Matchbook set. I liked it because the paper is double sided but I have to tell you, it was difficult to fold because it is such nice heavy 100# weight paper!! The edges distressed a bit, but I used some matching Bordeaux and Chartreuse ink and covered the white inner core that started to show through. I really wanted to keep this a simple card to show the flower at it's best. Miss Moxie provided the perfect background for the flower. It really brings out the yellows and oranges in the red side of the paper! The card base is Apple Green 1 and the saying from the Just Because set is stamped in Bordeaux also. Hope you like it!

I've been busy working on more Samplers, Valentine's for the kids, and sorority stuff for the annual Sweetheart Dinner. I'll post some of those goodies next week.

Your Dahlia card is awesome Barb! I love the colors you used. I hadn't thought twice about Miss Moxie but now I'm like "Hmmmmm...." LOL. And thanks for the shout-out!
