It is time for Challenge #40 at Clearly iStamp. The challenge is Flowers — Let’s see some flowers!

This is my take on the challenge:

I decided to let my paper take care of the flower requirement and then I went with a coffee theme friendship card.

So I went into the store the other day to look for brown bags (which if you come back on Thanksgiving and Black Friday you will see why) and what did I find? The cutest paper pad!! Now understand I don’t normally buy paper pads because I was spoiled working at a store and getting to choose what I wanted to buy. Plus I think paper was thicker 6 + years ago. But this paper was soooo cute and had sooo many possibilities and I had a coupon so I HAD to get it! You understand, right?!! So the cute paper pad is the 8×8  Modern Homemaker by October Afternoon.

For playing with us you will have a chance to win a $10 gift certificate for stamps or digis or the November featured digi image. For more information on the rules go here.

** Also don’t forget to come back Sunday for our Blog Hop at Clear Dollar Stamps. You will have another chance at winning some cool prizes.
