Sweet Bitty Bouquet

Happy Saturday!
Just a quick post this morning.  
I made a card for the current CAS(E) this Sketch using some new PTI stamps from the Bitty Bouquet set and the new cover plate Stitched Die that I used on the new linen CS.  I stamped the floral right onto the built in panel of the die front using PTI Simply Chartreuse and SU craft Marvelous Magenta.  Any of you remember this colour?  The stitched panel is mounted on the MM card front.  I made my own little flower pot with some dottie biscotti pp from PTI and three teeny buttons with matching embroidery floss (two strands only because i had to use the tiniest needle in the world to pass through the buttonholes) finish the card.  I have yet to add a sentiment.
Good news (on one hand) here, our daughter Caitlin and fiance Chriss are driving here from Colorado to spend a week or so with us and they are bringing Elmo, the Boston Terrier!  They will be here in three more hours!
Unfortunately, their last minute visit is needed because Chris's dad has to undergo a quadruple bypass on Monday morning.  I am praying that everything will go as smoothly as possible.
Thanks for peeking in today,
Also sending this to the SSS Wednesday challenge Special Lady/Girly
