Celebrate Your Day!

The gorgeous inspiration photo we were to follow..

Hi Friends!

How is your weekend going?  Did you find some
time to do crafting?  I sure hope so.  It's so re-
laxing and fun to sit down and craft away!:-)

Anyways, I want to share with you a card I made
for The Shabby Tea Room!  I could not resist this
challenge because it is filled with pink loveliness!
Look at that sweet banner, flowers, and goodies!
Wouldn't you want to attend a party with all
those lovelies?

So, I had fun incorporating lots of pink onto my
card.  I made a little banner and attached pretty
pink roses.  I did some fussy cutting with flowers
for more dimension and interest.  I used a new
Spellbinder die I recently purchased.  Pretty pink
lace and pom pom trim from Close to My Heart.
And, the stamp I used is from Paper Sweeties

My Mom loves pink and roses, so I'll be giving
her this birthday card in a few weeks.  Thank
you very much for dropping by here today.  I
hope you have a great weekend!  Take care, hugs!

    We had spitting snow and snowflakes for 1 1/2 days. It was so tiny you could hardly see it and it didn't stick. Drat! And, it has been very cold and windy...warming up a bit today, thankfully.

    Have a fabulous week.
