Lace Doily Fetish

I am laughing as I am getting ready to post my card for today- can you tell I just got the lace doily punch? I absolutely love it too- I think it makes the card soft, elegant looking. Today I pulled out my newest stamp set from SU called Upsy Daisy and thought I would play with it and the new colors.
I am using the Tangerine and the Kiwi cardstock and of course the tangerine ink. At first I did not order these colors, more so that I wanted to see them in real life but also I tend not to purchase all the new colors but I have to say.......... I was hooked when I saw the cardstock. I love all the new in colors except the pacific point blue. This set is just so pretty and I think it is because it is so simple, this card really didn't take long to make. I think that punching the doily edge took the longest as I must say that MS punch is not easy to use. I also decided to add a little touch to the inside by putting some cream paper and decorate it- allowing me to write a note or stamp something later. I always tend to leave everything blank until I use it.
I also want to thank all of you who posted suggestions to my card the other day. I will take a look at them and give them a try and then the winner will get the card, but it might take a couple of days. It is the weekend and I desperately need to do some grocery shopping and maybe, just maybe I will go to the Lions game on Sunday. I kinda want to stamp but then again I want to spend time with my hubby too. So we shall see!
That is all for me right now- thanks to everyone that stops in and post comments they are truly appreciated.
Have a great weekend!
Heidi
