  Hello!  I have a hello card to share with you today!  No real occasion other than to say hello!  Sometimes these cards are even more important to send than birthday or anniversary cards.  Just a note to let someone know they are on your mind can mean a lot!  Here is my simple hello card:

I rounded some corners and mixed up squares and circles for an interesting look.

I used the new Stampin Up! EF folder called Fanfare for the Vanilla background. It adds such a pretty little something something to your card!  It is soft and subtle, but adds a really nice texture.

I also used one of the new felt foam pads for the flower.  The petal center is from the old style of pad.  I was hesitant at first about the new pads, but they give your image a really nice deep rich look and seem to provide really nice coverage.  So, two thumbs up on those big guys! :)

Today I challenge you to make a card and send it to someone just to say hello and let them know they are on your mind! It is the right thing to do! ;)

Ok, my to do list is a hefty one today so I am out of here!  Have a wonderful day!

I love no occasion cards. Lately I'm doing cards for challenges only and I would love to sit and make a card without a reason!!!. Beautiful card and gorgeous flower!!!
