Another Wonderful Friday with Friends!

     It's that time again!  Time to put up a post for Friends with Flair, over on the Unity blog.  Angela is also running another fantastic sale this week, so be sure to check that out, also.

 
     Todays card just kind of happened.  I used the July KOM, and lots of scraps.  The card stock base is Moonlit Fog, from Gina K. Designs. There are also scraps of Cocoa, White, and a designer scrap from Wild Asparagus.  My image were stamped in Memento ink, directly onto the designer paper, and then re-stamped on white, with the leaves being cut out and paper pieced.  I added tiny white pearls to the centers of the tiny flowers that were made with  my SU! itty Bitty shape punch.  Color was added with Copic to the edges of the leaves, and then Diamond Stickles were put over it to add sparkle.  I also added some Gina K. Designs stitched ribbon.  The sentiment was cut with a SB scalloped oval.  One last thing... I have wanted a SU! scalloped border punch forever.  I was able to score one this past weekend, from a friend who is cleaning up her supplies.  That made me so happy!

     Since I used lots of bits from my desktop, I would also like to enter this over at Pixie's Snippets Playground, this week.  You must go check out all of the fine work done at the playground.

     I am staying home from work today, until I can get my Carpel Tunnel surgery scheduled.  I had hoped to wait until fall, but that is not going to happen.  It is silly to stay in pain if it can be resolved.

Hi Mary Anne

First of all - what a beautiful card - and a perfect sentiment. I feel for you with the Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, I had surgery a lot of years ago for that problem and had instant relief and have been 100% ever since. I hope you find the same - it was sooooo wirth it.

Hugs, Di xx

This is a gorgeous design and beautifully executed snippets card, Mary-Anne! I've very sorry to hear you need car pool tunnel surgery, but it will be worth it when it's all over. If you want to send me your address via my email, I'd love to send you a cheer-up card! I hope everything goes smoothly for you! Hugs, Darnell
