Thinking of you

Good day!
I'm a little late posting this, 
my little man and I have come down with a cold.

We have spent the entire morning cuddling on the couch.

He won't accept the bed, only me to sleep on!

Anyway, I'm here today to share a card made with one of the new Avery Elle release sets, Rounded Diamonds.

There is also a die set that goes along with it.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
