Thanks For Support….

Hello Everyone.  It’s the time of the month for our Bugaboo Crafty Challenge over at The Crafting Circle.  Since I was asked to make a card that would be used to thank a special friend for their help during a time of illness, I knew just what I wanted too do. I remembered seeing this image called  “Stella Peeker – Braless” and knew it would make a perfect thank you card.  You can find it here.

The regular card stock papers that I used to make my white card base and pink layer are from Hobby Lobby.  I’m not sure where my patterned paper was bought, but I knew that I had the perfect paper for this card in my single sheet stash.  (Yes, I’m one of those gals who can’t pass up getting every new sheet of paper that comes into the Joanns Store that’s by me.  I mean…who can pass up 5 sheets for $1 when you have a paper fetish!!!) Anyway, the paper is made by Me And My Big Ideas and I love how they added sparkles to the darker ribons.

I repeated the paper inside the card and then I printed a computer message, but I made sure I left enough room to also add a personal message. The pink ribbon was from my stash and I thought it added the perfect touch.

Thanks everyone for stopping by.  Don’t forget to enter the challenge and you may be the first winner of the new year.



pressed between the pages of my mind.”

This is a favorite song lyric of mine from a beautiful song sung by Elvis Presley.  It came to mind when I made this card for and old friend from Jr. High days.  Yep, we actually wore these skirts with all those crinolines, cinch belts, and embroidered shirts, but I don’t remember the Saddle Oxfords. In those days we mainly wore white Ked sneakers and knee-high socks.

The adorable image is called “Destiny Poodle Skirt” and is a digital image by Amanda Byron of Faery Ink, which I colored with Copic Markers and Prisma Pencils. The papers were from  a $1 pack at Target. The Balloons, Numbers and Letter Dies are from Die-Namics, Musical Notes are by Memory Box, and I’ve also used a Flower Punch by Friskars. The small circular stamped image is by Lily of the Valley.
