Happily Ever After

Hello everyone....first I want to say that my heart goes out to the people of Japan and all the those who have been effected by the earthquake and Tsunami that occured today...what a tragedy!!! My BFF's son and his family love outside Tokyo...I'm praying for their safety!!!

You won't believe I actually got up early this morning and went to help my Dad rake leaves and clean out his flower bed. I am all invirgorated, now, since I got a dose of the fresh morning air...hope my body doesn't go into shock...LOL!!!! Anyway...I'm back home safe in my craft room getting inky. I made a card for the Tuesday Trigger on the Moxie Fab World Blog...aren't the colors pretty!!!...and today's Free 4 All Challenge on Splitcoast to decorate the edges of our cards.
I made a wedding card for a friend's DD...sewing was done around the edges of the patterned paper and then Diamond Stickles was added for a little sparkle. The felt flowers were made with MFT's rolled flower Die-namics and the ribbon, orange flower centers, doily, and sticker sentiment finish it off. This also qualifies for yesterday's Ways to Use Challenge on Splitcoast to use felt.
Recipe:
Paper: Prima dp called Annalee, White Accessories: Sentiment Chipboard Sticker from Cosmo Cricket's Ever After, Pebbles Candy Dots and Orange Flower Jewel, Felt from MFT, Doily, Sewing Machine, Diamond Stickles, Martha Stewart Leaf Punch

I also entered this in a few other challenges:
1. Daring Cardmaker - home made (I made the felt flowers)
2. Joan's Garden - recipe
3. Fab n Funky challenge - make it girly

Thanks for visiting today....I hope you have a great weekend!!!

Such a beautiful card Joan. The flowers really pop.

My daughter is in Okinawa, Japan and I am very thankful that she is safe and the government has reported that all military is accounted for. Something to be thankful for on such a sad day.
