Pansies for KSS Monday

This weekend my sister is here a few weeks early to help me celebrate my birthday. We don't often get to spend crafting time together so it always really special when we do. We have been having a ball with one of the wonderful gifts she brought.

I am now the proud owner of a Martha Stewart Circle Edge Punch system and 3 punches. It makes the most fabulous doilies quickly and easily in sizes from 6 inches up to 12 inches which is a little large for card making, but I knew I had to fit one in for today's 10 Minutes and 10 Minutes More KSS Designs.  (Post sponsored by Kitchen Sink Stamps).

I realized that I haven't had the 3 Step Pansy out in a while and thought it would fabulous for today's cards. I hope you agree!

  10. Gorgeous creations Lynn. I really love the 10 minute pansy. The simplicity of the design shows your beautiful flower off so well. I'm so glad I checked out your blog tonight as it's still not too late to wish you a very Happy Birthday. I don't know about you but now that I'm not a kid anymore and in charge of my own celebrations I declare Birthday week.
