Celebrate Life...


Happy Monday!
Hope you had a great weekend and are ready for a creative week.

Today is one of my favorite days...


If you've stopped by directly from 
then you are in just the right place to continue with the hop.

If not, make sure you stop back at the
because there is a terrific prize for one lucky blog hopper!!


What I love about EAD Stickerz, beside the fact that they are repositionable...
and oh, the price...and of course the variety....
is that sometimes they can be used as the 
focal point of a card and other times,
they are the accent...I feel like this card shows both!

I created another woven flower using the new Cantaloupe baker's twine
from The Twinery and centered it with a beautiful and 'trendy'
bottle cap with a simple verse from EAD's 'Random Words'.
Those bright colors remindede me so much of Spring getting ready
to bloom here in Northern Illinois.

Behind it all is the Retro Flower Vine EF from Sizzix
showcasing the sentiment from EAD's 'Pocketful of Sunshine'.


Here are the sets I used....

Random Words

OH!  Here is one more thing I love about EAD...


Now it's time to move on so you can visit the other
talented ladies on this hop!
Your next stop is my sweet teammate

Please leave a comment and enjoy the rest of your day!!
