Toadstool House

My Aunt and Uncle from Virginia have been visiting for the past few days so I haven't been able to post anything new for a few days. My Husband and I really enjoy having them here so I was sad to see them go. Now that I have time in the craft room again here's what I came up with.

I was inspired by Taylored Expressions when I made this card. Taylor made a card using a new release mushroom stamp and I knew I had to try to re-create my own version of her card using my cricut. If you’re not familiar with Taylored Expressions stop by her blog to check her out. Don't forget to check out the store too.

I love the blues on this - such a pretty combination with the yellow and white, and just the right amount of bling!
