An elegant hello

This is just a quick card today--it's been a busy teacher kind of day.

Today's card was inspired by all these rub-ons I have laying around in my stamp room. Don't forget, rub-ons have an expiry date. They don't last forever! They dry out.

Anyways, since the sun and flowers have been non existent this week I decided to create my own!

Oh so pretty!!! And thanks for the tip about rub ons expiring - I did not know that. I am so guilty of getting fun stuff and then letting it sit a long time before I actually use it. Now where are those rub ons I bought 3 months ago??

Oh I thought I was first to comment on this one, but someone beat me and used almost exactly my words. I have not used any of my rub ons yet and I didn't realize they expired. That makes sense though, cause the only time I tried using them I had difficulty and it was with a much older set. Your card is beautiful. It inspires me to go rub my little heart out!
