Flourishes Timeless Tuesday meets CAS56!!!

Hello my sweet stampin' friends!!!

First I want to *thank you* all for thinking and praying for my family during this sad time. I have been very touched by all the sweet e-mails and comforting comments you have left me. You all are the best cyber friends I could ever ask for!!! Thank you!!!

On a happier note, we celebrated Sarah's *12th* birthday yesterday. Even though it was bittersweet we tried to make it a fun one....Sarah and I treated ourselves to manicures and pedicures.....it's was so nice to escape for a while!!!

Anyhow....it's time for another fun Flourishes Timeless Tuesday - FTTC56. Today Cindy is our host and she is challenging us to add *scallops* to our cards/projects!!! Whether you add scalloped shells, tiny scallop borders, or scalloped frames. As always we can't wait to see what you will create!!!

I also used the CAS56 - Hip to Be Square idea on my card......




I used the super cute Flourishes - Signs of Spring Set for my card.  My images were inked in Memento Black and colored with these Copic Marker CollectionsDaffodilLilac, Meadow, Robin's Egg. I used a Scallop Square Spellbinder Die in the background and bedazzled it with some Silver Pearls. I finished the card by adding some piercing and the Plum Pudding Ribbon.

I found this super duper cute basket template over on SCS. The handle & edges were punched with a Scallop Edge Punch. I finished it off with another Plum Pudding Bow and some yummy Easter Candy.

For more fabulous creations please stop by Barbara, Betty, Cindy and Maki's blog. Don't forget to check out the new Flourishes Store and blog as well!!!!! 

Thank you so much for stopping by today and we hope you will play along with us!!!
