Photo inspiration this week for
The Shabby Tea Room
Hi there!
How's the weekend going for ya so far?  I hope it's a
great one for ya whatever you have planned.  I had
some crafty time last night and came up with the
above card.  I'm entering it over at The Shabby Tea Room.
 We were to include colors of the photo, a flower, and
stripes.  My stripes are a little difficult to see.  If you
look closely, I have a strip of stripes along the left
side of the card.  Anyways,  I stamped up a pretty
little lady and added pearls for a necklace.  Doily,
burlap and punched circle with pearls.  The paper
I used was My Mind's Eye.  I stamped up a little
heart from Paper Sweeties for added interest.  The
yummy seam binding ribbon is from Paper Sweeties,
also.  Gorgeous flowers from Recollections were
added to finish off the card.  This sweet little
card will go to my niece for her birthday.
Thanks so much for dropping by!  We're thinking
of taking in a movie later this afternoon.  We've
seen several movies lately.  Lincoln was the last
movie we saw, which was very good.  Well,
take care and have a wonderful weekend, hugs!
