Confetti Flowers

Hello! Happy Thursday:)  Sorry for my absence...I try to make some time to squeeze a card in here and there but sometimes I don't get around to posting.  I am currently training to do a half marathon for my husband's Half Ironman.  (His back is not great and the running makes it worse so I told him I would do the half for him---who knew he would take me up on that offer?!?!)  Anyway, although I am not ever in horrible running shape....I started this training just two weeks ago because of the weather. So it might not be pretty!

I did make this little number this week--yay!  I really wanted to use this sweet pink confetti that my daughter Lauren got me for my birthday. She said, "You always stop and look at the glitter in Target so I got you these!"  So I wanted to use them asap:)

To get some inspiration, I looked at the newest Paper Smooches challenge---which is to create a card that has flowers.  Easy enough!  For this card, I used the mason jar with flowers from Best Buds but just trimmed off the mason jar.  I wanted a simple design for the confetti.  Lauren approves:)

Oh,I just love this card. You always seem to make the sweetest cards. I am away from all my crafty supplies until the middle of May, soaking up some Arizona sunshine. Wow, I give you credit for that training. Not easy work. Good luck with the run.
