Awesome Day!

Hello my blog friends!  I never meant to be away so long.  Wowzers it's been crazy with all the end of school activities.  I've been volunteering a lot and I've bee working on teacher gifts.  I also helped my son with his diorama that was due this week.  So I've been crafting, but unable to post anything.  I did make a card this am, but first my NEWS!

  I AM THE FEATURED STAMPER ON SPLITCOAST  TODAY!  How rockin' awesome is THAT!?  What a great email to open up on a Sunday morning!  WOOT!  You can check it out here.  I feel bad because I haven't updated my gallery in a few weeks.  It's a no upload Sunday so I'll have to wait til tomorrow.  I've had an amazing few weeks of being honored as a crafter on a few challenge blogs and a bit of news for later in the summer to share....hmmmm...is that a hint or what?

Now onto my card....


 I've been working all weekend at the schools garage sale.  We got poured on yesterday!  A lot of stuff will be sold pretty cheaply today.  My friend noticed this box of doilies.  She gave me the whole box!  You never know what treasure you will find at a garage sale:)  I needed to make her mom a thank you card because she altered my bridesmaid dress and would not let me pay her.  So this is for her.  I made several flowers.  My heart is fabric cut out with a nestabilities.  Isn't that doily pretty?  It's perfectly aged too! 

This is for a few challenges....

The Playdate Cafe.....yellow, pale peach, peach colors
The Shabby Tea Room....Dear to my heart....use a heart
Crazy for Challenges... to use pleats



Sorry!  No time for deets.  Gotta go get the hungry boys and girl some
breakfast.  Have a great day!
