One of my best friends is going through surgery today, for a double knee replacement! Praying all will go well, and I know she'll need some encouragement during the long recovery. She's in Canada, so I wanted something fairly flat to send. And I loved the Hang In There sentiment from the Keep it Simple set.

Had a chance to play with these beautiful colors this week!

I chose to focus on the picture with the bird in it for today's Blog Hop.
I went with a lighter background of Auqa Mist, so I could include some background shading and stamping. You can't see it much in the photo, but after sponging the sides, I used the music notes from Songbirds. The flowers are from Floral Sketches, the bird is from Spring Woods, and the sentiment is from Banner Style. When I got done, it looked a little like it was floating, so I decided to do some faux stitching around the edge with a Navy marker.

I finished my last project using one of my favorite floral stamp sets. How could I choose just one! I couldn't, so I had to choose the one that fit my project! I wanted to do a dark background like Stephanie had posted during the countdown. I used navy instead of black, and I love the finished look just as well. I'll add my sentiment when I'm ready to use it. It's always good to have one of those "almost finished" cards that would work for any occasion on hand.

Thank you Shelly on the forum! Because she thought of having my daughter snap a picture of this card I sent to her of her fur babies. I was SO excited to send it after I made it for the PTI challenge, that I forgot to take a picture of it!!

Day 2 with Rebecca challenged us to make a pretty package or tags. I had been saving this lace cupcake holder, knowing it would make a great project, and today was the day!
The peachy pink lace cupcake holder is shimmery, and when Rebecca shared how she and her Grandmother collected pretty things, yeah, this was one of those for me! I've adhered it with spray glue and trimmed them edges. The sentiment is from Songbirds and there is a double layer of Melon Berry Bitty Dots and Vellum.
Now I need a wedding!
Yay! I bought these stitching stamps and dies three years ago! Time to pull them out, right?
