If a little thank you can mean a lot...

Can a tiny bloom be as sweet?  I think so =]  I have a new friend in this fun blogging world - she'll know just who I mean when I say "merci!"  This one's for you!

I've again taken that little Hydrangea punch from Martha Stewart out of hiding to make the leaves for this tiny little bloom - an adhesive metal accent from CLOUD9Design. 

I wish I could give credit for the bits of embossing on the white background - you know me and my BHITR [blog-hopping-in-the-round].  It's as simple as getting a hammer from the tool-box, placing a piece of cardstock inside, and giving the folder a few gentle strategic whacks from the reverse side. Sending a big thanks to "Ms. Ingenious" as well. . . wherever you are! You'll be seeing it again [and again =].  Let me know if you know who she is, okay?

I'm hoping the ladies at the CASology challenge think this qualifies as a FLOWER as I'm submitting it for Challenge Wk. 96. =] 

I better do another, just in case =[
