A doily challenge

 I didn't plan on posting again so soon but I did this card for a JustRite challenge and I needed to link my submission back to my blog. The challenge required a doily to be incorporated. I used a silver cupcake doily and then I cut out the sentiment with Labels Eighteen. The sentiment is from the JustRite set Hugs to You. I embossed the background with a 5x7 CuttleBug folder by Anna Griffin called Rosa. The flowers are from one of the dollar stores and the leaves were punched out with a MS punch called Frond.

I must say today was one of those perfect days. I have the house to myself and you all know how much I enjoy that. I sat out on the deck with my coffee and the newspaper and a couple of candles to start the day. Then I got into the garden and did some trimming of my rose bushes and I still had a few flowers that had to be put in the flower beds to add a bit of color here and there. All of that before noon. Then I spent some time on one of my favorite sites- Pinterest. Absolutely addicted. I came across a pin on how to clean your washer so I got up and headed to the laundry room. A cycle of hot bleach water followed by a cycle of hot vinegar water and I now have a sparkling clean washer. I can hardly wait to do the laundry now- not! I can hardly wait to see what tomorrow brings.
~Have fun and enjoy
