Happy Thursday, everyone!!  I hope that your week has gone well so far!  It's been a good "normal" week for me....and we are getting ready to head up to Seeley Lake this weekend for some winter fun!  Very excited for that....and I am sure I will have lots of fun updates next week about that!

I have a really pretty card to share with you today that uses the new Prima 6x6 paper pad called "Introspection", and  new flower sets called "Joulee"& "Mini Sachet".  This card is extremely feminine, but with a purple/blue/green color combination....which you don't see much of these days.  Prima featured a Flowers & 6x6 Pad blog post the other day, which this card and MANY other inspirational projects were included be sure to check it out.  The new flowers & 6x6 papers are fabulous!  Here is my card!
1. Make A2 card from purple cardstock.
2. Cut green paper slightly smaller, sand the edges & adhere.
3. Cut a floral paper strip, sand the edges and adhere to the right side.
4. Cut a scallop border from pink paper, sand the edges and adhere along the bottom.
5. Sand the edges of a sentiment sticker, and adhere where the floral & pink papers meet.
6. Wrap crochet trim around the scalloped border, then add a strip of rhinestones to the top of it.
7. Tie a double bow from twine, add a button to the center, and layer with a wooden butterfly below the sentiment.
8. Cluster flowers to the top of the card, then add two small paper roses to the left of the sentiment to finish.

I have a couple of fun Instagram photos to share with you today!  If you want to follow me on Instagram to see my fun photos quicker, just search for @ltllea23....I would love to have you!
The first photo is the blooms I had to cut off my miniature rose plant because they froze next to one of our windows.  Sad face.  The second photo was my outfit yesterday- that shimmery houndstooth burnout tee is one of my FAVES from Christmas....along with the houndstooth scarf.  And the last photo is just a typical evening at the Lawson household.  Ha!

Well, that is everything I have to share with you today!  I hope that you have a wonderful rest of your Thursday, and are getting ready for an awesome weekend!

Until later,
