Friday already?!

The week has flown by - and I bet the kids feel the same too! It's back to school for them on Monday :)

We went to Denver Zoo yesterday and had a great time - despite the temps only reaching the low 40's! BRRRR! The leopards were very active, growling at each other, and Jamie and Nattie both loved watching the squirrel monkeys leaping around from branch to branch. A stop at Starbucks was definitely in order on the way home to warm us up: Earl Grey tea for me, hot chocolate for Nattie, and milk for Jamie :) A fun day out!

Today's card is made using a simple flower stamp (can't quite remember who made it, but I'll check it out). I found this really pretty patterned paper by Chatterbox and thought it made a great match. The regular and scalloped squares were cut out using Nestabilities dies. Shimmer brads by Making Memories (these are one of my favorites recently!).

Have a great weekend, everyone!!

ETA: the stamp is by Memory Box (thanks Karrie and Cat!) :)

So glad that you had a great time at the Zoo. Shoot it was a little cold to be out there for me. You are much better than I.

Just love the wonderful colors in your card. They are perfect and that stamp is adorable.

Hope you have a terrific weekend.

definitely a Memory Box stamp. it's called "Flower Stand". i actually have that stamp, and the matching Posey Penguin. i've never seen it used with these kinds of colors, and it give the stamp a totally different look. i always use it with the penguin - silly me! TFS truly beautiful card.

Oooohhh!! I miss the Denver Zoo. I was a member there and would take the kids all the time. Brendan particularly loved the rainforest exhibit.
