Friday, August 26, 2011
Happy Friday All!! I hope you are all ready for the weekend!! Today is our last sunny day fore casted for a while due to the fore casted Hurricane.  I don't know how much of the forecast is sensationalized and how bad it will actually be.  They are predicting power outages, 85 mph winds and a FOOT of rain. Yikes!! Hope they are wrong!! I have a sunshiny card to share with you....using a sneak peek from Our Daily Bread Designs called The Good Seed and the sketch  inspired by Iwona's Sketchbook Saturday #25 as well as the ODBD Stamping in Time to use lace (lacy doily).  The doily is a Cheery Lynn Canadian Kaleidoscope  die.  The leaf flourish is also from Cheery Lynn and is called Fanciful Flourish. The flowers are a mixture of prima and Wild Orchids (large blue rose).  The ivory flowers I glittered (you may have to click on the photo to see it in a close up). The dp is Basic Grey Botanical.  The sentiment is framed with the Spellbinders Grommet Tags cut out with my Spellbinders Grand Caliber.

I just popped over from the Make it Monday blog where I saw your beautiful card. I have come across your blog before and have admired your work from a distance.
As leaving comments takes up so much time it is not always easy to do so on every blog I admire. Today I have found time to do just that on your blog. Good luck in all your challenges.
