Quick Monday post

Hi Everyone, Happy Monday!! It's back to reality for me today. We were on vacation all last week (so glad I can schedule posts) and I was back at work today. At the moment, I am trying to finish up dinner dishes, get the kids clean and in bed...because tonight is The Bachelorette finale and I can't wait. So...this is going to be a quick post. I wanted to share a card I made with some leftover Jenni Bowlin goodies I got from the Croppin' Paradise store. The papers were too pretty to waste any scraps!


I bought a pack of doilies in the cake aisle at Michael's and love them! I thought they went well with the flower papers and the Jenni Bowlin butterfly.




And I made a matching tin, super easy. Just created a little band for the tin and cut a flower on my Cricut. This will make a cute little gift!



Can you guess how long those peanut butter cups lasted in that tin?? NOT very long...when I want to give it away, i'll have to buy more. Hee hee!!

So, are you watching The Bachelorette tonight??? I can't wait to see what happens!!

super pretty card, love the white doily with all the red. I watched the Bachelorette. I figured she would pick Roberto but I felt very bad for Chris.
