Make a Wish...
Hope all is well in your world today. It's been a very busy work week for me. I got off early today and spent some relaxing craft time in my craft room. It was very much needed with the busy week and awful weather we had yesterday. We had a tornado warning at the hospital where I work and spent an hour on the ground floor until all was clear. It usually takes me only twenty minutes to get home, but it took twice that by the time I arrived back in my cozy little home. And, I was so happy to see my dog safe and sound. Anyways, there is a lot of debris in the town where I work and many people are still without power. The blessing is that I didn't hear of anyone being hurt.
Anyways, onto something more happy and sweet, which is my card that I'd like to share with you today. I'm entering the above card at the The Shabby Tea Room. Here is the inspiration photo we were to follow...
Doesn't that look like a cozy little country kitchen? Lots of white with touches of red and aqua. We were to follow the inspiration photo and use the colors of red, white or cream, aqua, and twine or burlap. I started my card with kraft card stock. I pulled out some sweet Melissa Frances paper. A cloth doily was centered at the top of the card. Burlap was cut for the leaves. A darling cherry button was placed. The sentiments are from Paper Sweeties. I used the stamp set You're Invited. The Oatmeal Cream seam binding ribbon is from Paper Sweeties, also. The sweet die is from The Crafters Workshop. I finished off the card with gems and twine. I thank you so much for dropping by today! Take care and have a wonderful weekend, hugs!
