Time flies!

Wow, I just noticed it's been almost a month since I posted anything. Shame on me...although I don't have all that much to post -insert sad face here.   Just seems that work is getting in the way, well yuck!
So I will post one card I have done recently.  I must admit it came together fairly quickly which is a very good thing for me.  I used a Sassy Cheryl digi image, I do love those little kids but the main reason was I had just bought a new b/w laser printer and wanted to test it out.  I love the printer....I got no bleeding even when I used Stickles (I seem to always get some sort of ink bleed when I use the Stickles with the Memento ink - not sure if anyone notices it but I do).  I will definitely be using more digis in the future, just love my laser printer!!
Oh, I guess you want to see the card, LOL.  Here is it in all it's glory, hee-hee:
It's a simple card for me, but I still like it.  Bright and cheery :) I made it for a friend that lives in Wisconsin, Jackie, she has been having a horrible winter with snow and all so thought I would send some sunshine her way! Oh and don't you just love those flowers!!! They are handmade by a friend of mine, Sigi.  She can make the most incredibly beautiful flowers.  I'll be using more of her flowers in some cards to come, be on the watch.
And here's a quick look on the inside. Again, fairly simple for me, but it works. Gotta go now...have to do some more work before getting to the office tomorrow so I won't start my Monday completely swamped!
Happy Week Everyone:)
